Day 12: In the south

Before we leave for Hali, a short drive through Djúpivogur, the oldest harbor city in Iceland. Very small town and a good sense of humor… The guy at the recption told me that there are Red-throated divers just outside of the town to be seen. Using the Tamron 150-600 I was able to grab some shots […]

Day 9: Myvatn

Today we are going to Myvatn. The route we take is from Sauðárkrókur up north to Siglufjörður and then via Dalvik, Akureyri and Goðafoss to Reynihlíð, Myvatn. The first section to Siglufjörður and half down to Akureyri is mostly driving in the low clouds. Via ring road 1 we will continue most of the travel from now on. Akureyri is truly […]

Day 7: Drangajökull

Before breakfast I did some shots of the Iceland horses in Heydalur. Today the only plan is to walk to the Drangajökull. We arrive at the parking around 11:30 and walk directly towards the glacier. After about half of the distance the area got a bit swampy and the small runlets from the mountain to […]

Day 6: On the way to Heydalur

Very good weather when starting from Látrabjarg towards Heydalur in the northern part of the Westfjords. We take the route at the western coast via Dynjandi waterfall and Ísafjörður. Terrific panoramic views nearly throughout the whole drive. After 2 hours we reach the Dynjandi. Heard that it is not that crowded as other places but that seemed to […]

Day 4: Welcome to the Westfjords

Today we’re going from Snorrastaðir to Látrabjarg. The route is planned via Klofingur and Rkhólaeyr at the southern coast line of the Westfjords. To Klofingur we are taking the gravel road 590. Close to the stopover there’s a sign to a church (in the middle of nowhere); something which wakes up curiosity. The F-road leading there […]

Day-3: Snæfellsnes Tour

Early up and the sun is shining! Fantastic! Now we only need this for the tour to Snæfellsnes. Long story short… yes, it is fantastic weather at nearly all places on the peninsula. On to Hellnar seeing the wonderful cave of lava in the water, the Baðstofa. After a short walk we are driving back […]
