Another bitterly cold and windy day in the Arctic north. We get sandblasted at the famous black sand beach Reynisfjara, and explore back roads and lesser-visited waterfalls where the tourist aren’t flocking.
Out of the Wind
The only way to get out of the sandblasting wind at Reynisfjara (the famous Black Sand Beach) is to stay behind the mountain. The minute you step back into the open the wind and blowing sand tries to bowl you over.
