A great evening flight along the ridge

Detailed description

Ridge running at a wonderful site.


Herdísavík is a world-class ridge soaring site in South Iceland. It is remote and very beautiful. The takeoff is on the ridge, just east of parking place at the corner of the lake.

This flight was lovely. Very smooth ridge lift and easy to hold up. I decided to follow the ridge as far as I could and managed to cross all the gaps. I made about 12km end-to-end.
