We drive up north from Capital Reykjavík through the Borgarnes town where the Snæfellsnes road takes us to the meeting with the volcanic nature at the seaside. The local fishing villages, Djúpalónssandur Beach, Arnarstapi and Kirkjufell Mountain. Above all the glacier capped Sæfellsjökull volcano that produced most of the picturesque lava fields from the slopes of the volcano to the extreme encounter with the Atlantic Ocean.
Arnarstapi fishing port
Djúpalónssandur pebble beach
