Four members of our family toured on a 52-metre sailing yacht for 7 days with 25 passengers from Reykjavik through the Westfjords and disembarking in Akureyri.
It was an amazing experience to travel to these small villages by water.
These are photos I have that were taken as we approached Grundarfjörður, population 872 people. Grundarfjörður is located on the north of the Snæfellsnes peninsula in the west of Iceland.
The town was settled by French merchants who built a church and a hospital. The fishing industry benefited the town's economy. Grundarfjörður was a scenic little village, very clean with bright coloured buildings.
Kirkjufell is a 463 m high hill on the north coast of Iceland's Snæfellsnes peninsula, near the town of Grundarfjörður. It is claimed to be the most photographed mountain in the country.
