Ricky,

Totally amazing photos, mate! Glad to hear you had a good time.

Did you manage to taste puffin? Bit of a delicasy, but beautiful to eat.

I'm sure Bogip will back me up on that.

Those underwater shots are spectacular.

Dave

Great pictures

I have been pondering how long to stay when we come over next year.

May be extending the time now I have seen the diving ?.
Does anyone else dive who is planning to go on the iceland cruise next year ?.

Also a question for Bogi, what are hotel & car hire costs like ?.

Regards Gary

I finally got all my Iceland photos on the web - to make it kind of relevant to ribnet the link takes you to a photo of us diving off an inflatable

http://www.rickydiver.com/images/ice.../eSC_0098.html

I took way way way too many photos, and most of them went up!

Got back from Germany yesterday from 28 degrees and what a pleasant coming back home to 13 degrees and wearing short and t-shirt.

Torper I believe you must have meet a good friend of mine Arni Kopsson a keen diver.

Nice to see the pictures with low cloud at Seyðisfjörður, great pics

Manos - yes we took 7 rebreathers out with us. I wouldnt take them again as its very hard to get oxygen fills in Iceland

Thanks Bogi - unfortunately I didnt meet Arni; we dived with Hedinn Olafsson and Fjölnir Björgvinsson. I cant even begin to pronounce Seyðisfjörður, but the scenery around there was awesome!

Driving in Iceland

Most mountain roads and roads in the interior of Iceland have a surface of loose gravel. The same applies to some sections of the national highway, which also has long stretches of asphalt. The surface on the gravel roads is often loose, especially along the sides of the roads, so one should drive carefully and slow down whenever approaching an oncoming car. The mountain roads are also often very narrow, and are not made for speeding. The same goes for many bridges, which are only wide enough for one car at a time. In addition to not having an asphalt surface, the mountain roads are often very winding. Journeys therefore often take longer than might be expected. The total length of the Ring Road around Iceland (national highway) is 1.339 km.
The general speed limit is 50 km/h in urban areas, 80 km/h on gravel roads in rural areas, and 90 km/h on asphalt roads.

PLEASE NOTE:
Special warning signs indicate danger ahead, such as sharp bends, but there is generally not a separate sign to reduce speed. Please choose a safe speed according to conditions. Motorists are obliged by law to use headlights at all times day and night. In Iceland all driving off roads or marked tracks is prohibited by law. Passengers in the front and backseats of an automobile are required by law to use safety-belts. Icelandic law forbids any driving under the influence of alcohol.
