Today we are headed to the famed and isolated Western Fjords of Iceland We have a long day of 398 Km a lot of which is off road.
But first we decided to try and see if we could get up the road near Olafsvik, which goes up to the glacier. It all went well for about 20 km until the road was blocked with snow!
Back on the intermittently paved highway we were headed west and north past lava fields, lush green hills, and waterfall after waterfall.
Finally after the last of the Fjords we turned off of the paved road towards Breidavik and into some cold and very foggy weather. Arriving at the lodge we were freezing at 8 pm and the fog was so dense you could hardly see. Since the camping was very expensive we opted for a bunkroom where you use your own sleeping bags for not much more.
This church is 20 meters from the hotel and you could barely see it when we arrived, but it cleared up and today for the puffin wall we have spectacular weather!
The road from Breidavik to Latrabjarg is 12 KM and good except for a small section with freshly poured gravel.
Arriving at the most western point in Europe we stopped for a photo OP.
We headed towards the cliff edge and were surprised to see when we looked over puffins everywhere. You can spend hours watching them and we did. We also walked about 2 km along the cliffs, but the best viewing was nearest the car park.
