Our first major destination involved a 60 km detour to Hvritserkur - and boy was it worth it. Nature is a wonderful sculptor.
After that we had a lovely drive in and out of the fjords. The east side of the northwest fjords region, the Strandir coast, receives a lot of driftwood from Siberia and Norway. Collecting this wood was an important industry in the past. Although still collected today, it is not a major industry.
At our destination, Drangsnes, we met a friendly Canadian couple, Howard and Amy, and their son who were camping wild around Iceland. They were warming up in the local hot tub.
