Our first excursion outside of Reykjavik was into the western area known as the Snæfellsnes peninsula. The region is full of fjords, mountains, volcanic peaks, and cliffs, most of which were covered in a low cloud layer. I would have preferred better views, but we still enjoyed a long country drive, small ocean villages, and black sand beaches, and fantastic landscapes. We completed the loop around the entire peninsula, but conditions weren’t spectacular for photos. There is so much more to see than what I was able to capture here.
