{iceland} ring road day 4

February 19, 2017

Today’s journey along the east coast of Iceland started in Hofn. From there, we headed north and visited a number of different beautiful fjords along Eastern Iceland’s jagged coast. The first small town was Djúpivjur along the Berufjördur Fjord. Then we visited Breithdaalsvík before heading slightly inland and visiting Lagarflót in Hallormsstadur, which is known for the Icelandic version of Scotland’s Loch Ness Monster.

Then imagine driving along windy dirt and gravel roads to Seydisfördur Fjord, which was kind of like driving up into the mountains and then back down toward the water, as if descending on a small fishing village by the waters edge hidden by grandiose mountains. Just was beautiful was Borgarfjordur Eystri where we got to witness puffins popping in and out of their mountain-side nest holes. These two places (Seydisfördur and Borgarfjordur Eystri) might have been some of my favorites on the entire island … they were just so magical!

We ended up staying the night in Egilsstadir, which may not be the most beautiful town, but at least it was helpful in terms of stocking up on supplies before heading farther north tomorrow!
