About Akranes

Then the downhill just got plain fun…It maybe would have been a better plan going up this side – it’s really, really steep, but covered in scree and so an absolute nightmare to go down in any sense of safety. But we did, partly using “paths” that were there, and partly just wandering down through routes that looked like the rock surface was going to be stable enough. Once we’d worked our way down and off the hill (a bit over 200 metres, so nothing huge, but still a decent little climb from not much above sea level), we went a bit further up the coast, first to Akranes, where we didn’t really stop properly, but drove through and had a look around, and then on up to Borgarnes, where we did.
