Arrival to Iceland – Rif Field Station, Raufarhӧfn

After long flight from Wroclaw to Reykjavik we have finally reached Iceland. Due to strong jet stream our fight was a little bit complicated with an unexpected stopover in Stavanger.

The Rif Field Station is located in north-eastern part of the country. During the first three days we observed amazing landscapes and rich arctic vegetation. We were driving along the southern coast (circa 900 km) – the most glaciated part of the island. We have already collected some samples of dwarf shrubs from warmer and wetter southern part of the Iceland, which will be used for comparison with the ones from northernmost point – the surroundings of Raufarhӧfn.

At the Rif station we were warmly welcome by the station manager – Jónína Sigríður!
