Arriving in Seydisfjordur, Iceland--July 1, 2010

One of the reasons we decided to take this cruise was due to the fact that we would be able to visit 5 ports in one of our favorite places, Iceland. Seydisfjordur is located in the northeastern part of the island. As you can tell by the photos, the weather was overcast and just starting to rain.


The lupines are not native to Iceland. Someone brought them in, and they have taken over. (I thought they were quite pretty, but many Icelanders do not like them at all.)

A lot of the area is covered with a thick moss coating. If the moss is disturbed, we were told it would take 100 years to regenerate.
