Ísafjörður to Stykkishólmur

Updated: Jul 10, 2020

My friend, Ferne, is here in Iceland for her third Snorri Plus trip! They had their graduation last week, so she flew up to Ísafjörður and we have been able to spend time together. She has heard my presentation four times now here in Iceland……. I am sure she could give it! She is a great photographer and it is fun to have someone to have along on the long drives between locations.

On Saturday, we left Ísafjörður and drove south across the mountains and valleys of the west fjords. The Dynjandi or Fjallfoss waterfall is spectacular!

The Westfjords are magical. I think it would be a good idea to walk because every few meters, we wanted to stop and take photos.

We continued south from Ísafjörður about three hours. There were a few horses, many sheep, and lots of birds along the way.

The mountain roads were pretty bad because of the rain, heavy clouds, pot-holes and the ever-present sheep along the road – but we survived.

Along the way, there is the Jón Sigurðsson Museum, which is at the farm of his birth, Hrafneseyri.
