Iceland West Fjords Fine Art Prints

February 15, 2016  •  5 Comments

Hi there, great to have you back! After traveling to Reykjanes and Sneaefellsnes we're moving forward to the Westfjords now. Unnoticed from tourism for many years this amazing part of Iceland gets more and more visitors. No surprise, this peninsula has a wonderful coastline with lots of fjords surrounded by hills and mountains. One of the many highlights this land of fire and ice has to offer. But be warned: better bring some time with you, don't hurry, you will drive mainly on gravel roads. Which is o.k. because you will have to stop the car many times to take tons of pictures:

The West Fjords are mountainous, be prepared to see some snow in June.

A waterfall (Dynjandi) pouring in a river that leads into a fjord (Arnafjordur) surrounded by hills - can't get much better.

No, this is not the beach of a Caribbean Island - it's Iceland. Really. Trust me. You will see such beautiful golden beaches when traveling through the Westfjords.

Puffins. The cutest birds on the whole earth. At least I think so :-)

"There is a ship" she said as we are driving along the coast. "And it is on the shore". Of course we had to stop. Again. And take some pictures. Again. This is Gardar BA 64, a ship wreck that got a fresh painting not too long ago.
