Garðar BA 64

Day 55 . 22nd August, Patreksfjörður and Rauðasandur, Iceland (Vestfirðir or West Fjords)

From Stykkishólmur I took the ferry to Barðastrandarvegur.  I had intended to next take a short journey to the north-east, to the area around Flókalundur, where there may have been good views.  657 more words


My Westfjords Favourites: Food!

I love visiting the Westfjords because of the nature, the history, the beauty and the food. Ok, mainly the food. Seriously this small part of Iceland has just a wonderful food culture. 840 more words


My Westfjords Favourites: Top 5 Geothermal Pools!

1.) Hellulaug (GPS: 65° 35′ 16.67″, -23° 8′ 29.32″)

I love this little natural pool with views over the beach and across the fjord with the Snæfellsnes glacier glistening in the background. 631 more words


Weekend in the Bestfjords!

Continuing with our joyous adventures when we finally got our car we decided to take off and explore the Westfjords (or Bestfjords!) with our first weekend off together in nearly 6 months – that’s what happens when you both work 2 jobs and you have to make the most of the time you have off together with your beautiful car named Senor Pickles (yes, we named our car and I can’t quite remember why we picked that name but I digress…). 450 more words


mæðgur á ferðalagi: heimsókn til ættingja á patró og tálknó

We arrived in Patreksfjörður with the hope of seeing relatives but with no actual plan. It is not really the Icelandic way to plan ahead. I’ve often heard the theory that Icelanders’ inability or unwillingness to plan ahead is tied to the uncertainty of the weather, and that even now, when modern technologies and conveniences can mitigate the harshness of weather to some extent, it’s still in their blood to wait until the last minute.  1,667 more words
