Is a four day solo road trip through Iceland enough to properly explore the country?
Absolutely not. But, it sure does make for one heck of a brilliant teaser.
My visit to Iceland’s Westfjords left off as I hopped the small car ferry from the Ferry Baldur terminal. The ferry took me across perfectly flat seas, stopped briefly at the car-less island of Flatey, and continued on before docking at Stykkishólmur on Snæfellsnes peninsula. The following day and a half was spent exploring Snæfellsnes, photographing waterfalls, walking old volcanic craters, and even spotting an Orca from the cliffs. It was beautiful and included amazing experiences with locals as I stumbled into the local annual Fisherman’s Festival. This post showcases photos taken during the ferry ride and my time spent on Snæfellsnes.
My trip to the Westfjords was, in no small part, inspired by Hjortur who I interviewed about Iceland, the Viking Sagas, and all things related here. Photos in this post were captured using a Canon 6D (aff. link) and combination of lenses. Make sure to catch all five of my full Iceland albums over on flickr here.
