The visibility was good and I couldn’t miss Louis’s red Hilleberg tent from over a mile away. Today was the last day on the glacier and it had been a great week of training.
I got a high five from Louis as I met his tent and shortly after we were picked up by Arngrimur in his impressive 4×4. He then drove us off the ice and to get an amazing cheese burger (I had a double).
We then spent one night in a hotel near the airport before navigating the pulks through the airport again.
Overall an invaluable experience on the ice. A huge thank you to Louis, my friend and Expedition Manager and Arngrimur for providing us with maps, extensive knowledge of the glacier, transport, the amazing burger placer. We were also given a signed copy of Arngrimur’s book, I can definitely say I will be back in Iceland in the future!
