Just about as wild as Iceland gets, and according to one local person, “Like travelling in Iceland in the old days.” The Westfjords are some of the least-travelled parts of Iceland, excluding the interior.
We took more than 500 pictures combined, so it will take some time to sort out a narrative and put them all up. Our bandwidth could handle it tonight, but I drove more than 25 hours this week and I’m too tired.
I made teasers on Fotor.com (my favourite photo-editor at the moment). Coleen, Russ, and the Westfjord beauty itself. Stay tuned for the Midnight Sun, a dip in the Greenland Sea, puffins in two forms, hot pools, several hundred waterfalls, and mind-blowing expanses of space.
Russell was so inspired by the landscape that he ACTUALLY TOOK PHOTOS! This is a rare occasion, indeed.
But the landscapes of the Westfjords themselves are extremely impressive. Mind you, the following is only partial coverage of the natural awe-inspiring areas that we were able to see.
The best part is that we travel together!
Here’s our route. Stay tuned over the next few days while I rest up and make proper tribute to our trip.
Here’s our route (nearly 1300km Round Trip):
For your entertainment, here we are dipping into the Greenland Sea at the Rauðisandur Red Sand Beach.
