Húsavík Namaskard

Early in the morning of August 4th we arrived at Húsavík where we went by bus to several spots. Húsavík is a large town at the northeastern edge of Iceland. Supposedly a Swedish explorer, Gardar Svavarrsson, spent the winter there in 870 along with severla other people - although he might have been the first settler he didn't get credit for that.

The first place we went to was Namaskard which has many sulfurous springs and steam springs. The fumes make it impossible for anything to grow there so the spot is barren.
