Will, packing for our camping trip to Iceland: "Tent - check. Hiking boots - check. Down sleeping bag - check. Crampons - check. Camping stove - check. Wait - how many ballgowns?!"
We awoke on our second morning in Iceland to the sound of the seals grunting and splashing in the glacial lagoon yards from our tent. It had snowed in the night, but the sun was warm as we packed up the tent and set off on our day's adventure. We didn't have a plan - which is how the best adventures often start. A few miles along the route we decided on a whim to follow a rough track signposted Heinabergsjökull and found ourselves with our very own glacier and frozen lagoon all to ourselves.
