The road out from the puffin wall was much better when you could actually see where you were going and there were lots of thing we had not seen at all on the way in.
Today’s plan is to head to the northern coast of the west Fjords in 404 km or at least to the largest town on the peninsula at Isafjordur. Much of this route is unpaved also.
We came across a few small waterfalls as well as hot pools.
Coming around the corner and down the steep decline you are awed by the view of the massive collection of 7 falls at Dynjandi (Fjallfoss or thunderous falls) with a cumulative height of 100 meters.
Leaving here we continued over yet another few snow covered mountain passes.
There are also a number of tunnels. The 7 km Vestfjaroagong tunnel that opened in 1996 and ended the winter isolation of 3 villages by connecting them to Isafjordur. There are actually several side tunnels from this tunnel of 2.9 and 2.1 kms. This was the last tunnel with one-way sections built here in Iceland.
We decided to keep going to the town of Bolungarvik thru another 5.4 km tunnel, since the sun would be shining longer on that side of the peninsula. There is a modest campground here at the recreation center.
