Iceland ~ Snaefellsnes and more ~ May '16

Friday, 13 May 2016

A long weekend trip to Iceland mainly travelling around the Snaefellsnes Peninsula, trying out some circular routes and dead-end tracks in a 4x4.

Flew out of Gatwick on the 6th with Easyjet and returned on the 9th with Wowair just for better timed flights.

4x4 was hired from

A Suzuki Grand Vitara ...

It's prohibited to drive off road in a car and most of the best roads are gravel so be warned get a 4x4 !!

My base was the beach front cabin at

The trip was all about scenery, Landscapes and Waterfalls ...

Amzing and stunning are the words that came to my mind by seeing your captures of the landscape. So crispy clear. The birds you captured are also outstanding.
