Day 4 - Ásbyrgi, Iceland

Excellent day today. I flew to Ásbyrgi, Iceland, where I was picked up at the airport by Erlendur Bogason, the owner of Strytan Divecenter. We drove through some amazing countryside with snowcapped mountains in the background to a newly discoverd Crack Nesgjá and Lake Lón. Our first dive was through the crack and into the lake. It was not only incredibly clear, visibility was 100 meters or as far as the eye can see, but it was also incredibly colorful - greens, blues, yellow, browns. Crack Nesgjá

Lake Lón.

The next stop was about ten minutes away at 17°c hot river Litla Á where I snorkel. The river is known for its big touts and warm springs. Air was bubbling from the bottom of the river. And most spectacular was hovering at the opening of the stream watch the small fish and sun reflect off the bubbles underwater.
