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.

Town is called Stykkishólmur and from the lighthouse on the hill, you will be able to overlook the whole town in a bird eye view! Not only that, you could also overlook the fjords and glaciers along Breiðafjörður, AND THE FLOWERS ARE BLOOMING! *insert heart shaped eyes* The entire journey(13hours) was so scenic! Totally understand why it is called Iceland in Miniature.
