Des de Reykjavik, al Blue Lagoon i l'àrea geotermal de Krýsuvik

Súper puntuals, a les 9 menys quart del matí ha vingut el noi de l'agència de lloguer de cotxes Geysir Car Rental, a portar-nos el cotxe que hem llogat: un HYUNDAI de color blau metalitzat.

Àrea geotermal de KrýsuvikHem agafat el cotxe cap a l'àrea geotermal de Krýsuvik, passant pel llag Klefarvatn. Tota la zona de Krýsuvik, plena de hot springs, fa olor (o pudor?!) a ous podrits, degut al sofre que conté l'aigua calenta que surt de sota terra.

Per anar al Blue Lagoon, en comptes de tirar enrere, hem agafat la carretera que va fins a Grindavik (no esfaltada però en bon estat), rodejats d'un entorn espectacular. De camí hem agafat a dos francesos que feien auto-stop. Es veu que aquí a Islàndia hi ha molts turistes que es mouen per l'illa fent auto-stop...

Blue LagoonArribem al Blue Lagoon i paguem 23 € per persona. Val molt la pena! Hi ha força gent, però com que és molt gran, no molesta gens. Encara que faci molt fred a l’exterior, l’aigua és tant calenta que dóna gust banyar-t'hi. Hi ha zones on et pots embadurnar de fang blanc. També hi ha sauna, banys turcs i una cascada d’aigua calenta.

Les taquilles tenen un funcionament extrany, però relament molt eficient. Amb una pulsereta pots obrir i tancar les taquilles, mitjançant un xip. Hi ha un restaurant on pots dinar el buffet (20 € aprox) o bé fer un bocata ràpid.

De tornada cap a Reykjavik, hem parat al petit poblet de Hafnarfjorður. Hem passejat pel Parc Hellisgerdi i hem pujat al mirador de Hamarinn, tot i que no sembla un mirador, perquè han construit un edifici davant que tapa totes les vistes…

Platja de NauthólsvikDesprés hem anat al far de Seltjarnarnes (Grótta), on hem agafat unes pedres de colors de la platja pel nostre amic Edu. Des d’aquí es veu bé el glaciar Snaefellsjokull, sempre que el cel estigui despejat! Tot i que ja és mitja tarda, aquí sembla que siguin les 12h del matí... així, hem aprofitat per anar a visitar la platja de Nauthólsvik (de sorra daurada), que es troba al sud de Reykjavik. Hi havia molta gent banyant-se, la majoria ficada dins d’un hot pot d’aigua calenta... perquè el mar està a uns 18ºC.

Hem agafat el cotxe i hem anat al Perlan, la cúpula de vidre situada sobre els dipòsits de distribució d’aigua geotèrmica. Des d’aquí hi ha vistes panoràmiques de Reykjavik. Hi ha un restaurant (força car) i una cafeteria… Val la pena pujar a dalt de tot, i és gratis.

Hem anat a sopar al PRIKID KAFI & MATAR, un bar-restaurant on fan tot tipus de menjar, a un preu asequible. Ens hem demanat pasta amb salsa de formatges, champinyons, pernil i pa d’all (uns 8 €) i entrecot de vedella (12 €). Bonissim! Totalment recomanable. De postres hi havia uns pastissos de xocolata que tenien molt bona pinta… Està al carrer Bankastraeti, quasi tocant al carrer comercial Skolavordustigur.
