    Grjótagjá geothermal hot spa - #Iceland

    Grjótagjá is a small lava cave near lake Mývatn in Iceland. It has a thermal spring inside. In early 18th century the outlaw Jón Markússon lived there and used the cave for bathing.[1] Until the 1970s Grjótagjá was a popular bathing site. But during the eruptions from 1975 to 1984 the temperature of the water rose to more than 50 °C (122 °F), though the temperature is slowly decreasing and has fallen below 50 °C again. The nearby lava cave of Stóragjá is being used as an alternative bathing site.

  • Laufás farm in Eyjafjörður, North – Documenting #Iceland

    Laufás farm in Eyjafjörður, North – Documenting #Iceland

    Laufás in Eyjafjörður is located by the estuary of the river Fnjóská and is a renowned church site and chieftain's residence. The site still has a vicarage and many remarkable clerics have served there. The farm is a good example of a wealthy vicarage in earlier times. Laufás is mentioned in historical records soon after the settlement of Iceland (874-930) and since the earliest period of Christianity a church has been located there. The existing church was built in 1865 and among its special items is a pulpit from 1698. The farmhouse was rebuilt in an ambitious style in 1853-1882 and is an example of the gabled farmhouse, although significantly larger than the ordinary Icelandic farmhouse. The oldest section of the present day house is believed to contain timbers from the 16th and 17th century. Laufás is considered to be the prototype of the Icelandic architecture (many gables side by side), but much larger than most other such complexes. Usually, between 20 and 30 people lived at Laufas because many farmhands were needed to reap the benefits of the farm, such as the haymaking, the fishing in the river and the collection of eiderdown along the coastline. The last priest to live in the old buildings moved to a new rectory, nearby in 1936. The old rectory has not been occupied since, the interior and equipment shown are things found in Icelandic homes around the turn of the 19th century.

    Lava Cave Exploring │ Iceland landscape photo

    Lava caving alone is something I don’t recommend at least let someone know before you go. Sorry but I couldn’t resist it as the weather was not so good and the light was really dull. So I went underground. I love the colors in the Lava caves and the loneliness in complete darkness, with strange dripping sounds and cracks all around you. This cave is rather difficult as the lava from the ceiling has fallen down and you never know where to go, where you can find a hole to crawl in and what to expect on the other site. But “it’s all about loving it”.
