Day 7: Lake Flies

More driving today as we completed 2/3 of our round-the-island journey by traveling over 1000km from the starting point. Our first stop was Mývatn (米湖), a highly popular lake in Iceland. You would not miss its special feature the moment you step out of the car - flies. These flies are important to the ecosystem by providing food for birds and fishes so we were asked not to harm them (and just get annoyed). Another feature is the ‘fake volcanoes’ (called Pseudocrater) caused by steam explosions.

On our way to Akureyri, we stopped by a waterfall (Goðafoss) and took some photos (intended for family Christmas cards). As we approach closer to Akureyri, the traffic went busier and we could see the whole town filled with little packed houses across the harbour .

P.S. Before we arrived at Mývatn, we passed by a steaming area where underground heated gases bluster out the ground. The area was surrounded by a strong smell of sulphur (or simply, rotten eggs). We are staying at yet another Edda hotel in Akureyri.
