Aug 18, 2017 - National Geographic Orion
A lot of ground was covered today for the guests of the National Geographic Orion. In the morning, we embarked buses in the port of Akureyri and drove southwest into an area of heavy volcanic activity surrounding Lake Myvatn. As we explored this geological hot zone, we were entranced by the bucolic scenery, fascinating rock formations, and of course, appreciated the fields filled with sheep and the iconic Icelandic Horse. We visited volcanoes, lakes, waterfalls, geysers, and even ended up in an incredible whale museum in the fishing and whale watching mecca of Husavik.
