Welcome to heaven! 

Take Norway, Ireland, Scotland (3 of my favorite locations), then add a dab of one thing completely distinctive… and also you get the breathtaking Westfjords in Iceland. 

It’s not a big space, however round every nook is a view that makes your jaw drop. I feel I finished round 9000 occasions and virtually stuffed up a tough drive with photographs and drone footage! The YouTube video is simply going to include me going ‘wow’ quite a bit!

There are loads of sizzling springs, among the largest cliffs in Europe, fjords, mountains, lakes, and even tropical white sand seashores (unsure how heat the water is although!)

You can drive it in a circle, with a few off-shoots. Be warned, the roads are NOT for the faint-hearted. Some are tremendous, however some are gravel and VERY bumpy, though doable in a 2WD motorhome. 

The worst have been the pretty steep inclines and descents (15% at one level!), on gravel, with completely no security boundaries to cease you sliding over should you received a hairpin flawed… 😳

But don’t let that put you off visiting. It’s BEAUTIFUL and has been one of many highlights of the journey to date. Don’t miss the waffle cafe- they’re scrumptious! Whales are recurrently seen within the fjord there too. 

I used to be so fortunate to take pleasure in two days of sunshine earlier than the rain began, so I received to play with the drone quite a bit (particularly the ‘follow’ mode). Just watch out for the wind- there will be actually robust gusts if you flip a nook. Oh, and the birds attempt to assault the drone too! 😱

’Mo’ (the Adamo) has accomplished extremely well- she’s nonetheless trucking alongside taking care of me. I wasn’t certain how an automated would cope on these hills, however it’s been nice and really easy to drive. Going again to a handbook may be a battle!

But let’s not take into consideration that but. Still two extra weeks of this journey to take pleasure in first 🙂  

Sharing is caring!
