Our tour comes to an end!

Today we reached Grundarfjørdur, our second destination in Iceland. During the night it was quiet bumpy and when we reached the harbor of this very nice small settlement the weather was still not nice. But that changed very fast. During lunchtime the sky cleared up and the sun came out. That was more than perfect for all our excursions we had planned in the surrounding of Grundarfjørdur. We had an excursion to a shark farm; we had an excellent boat tour in the bay of Breidarfjordur and we had a bus tour to the amazing highlights of Snæfelsnes. Some guests made the decision to stay in this lovely town Grundarfjørdur; here they could enjoy the town itself or do some hikes like a hike to one of the waterfalls next to the settlement. Everybody came back on board with a smile in his face. It has been a perfect end for a perfect trip.

In the evening our Captain Arild Hårvik invited us to a farewell cocktail. Our last dinner was excellent and when the crew brought the “Baked Alaska” with all the candles on it, everybody felt a bit sad that the cruise came to an end. Tomorrow we will leave our lovely lady FRAM. Some of us will stay for some days more in Iceland to learn the country. For some guests it was already clear, they will come back on board FRAM at any time, on any cruise on any of the seven seas.
