Trip to Iceland - Sep 12 - Sep 19, 2019

Traveler: Deborah W. - Local specialist: Pauline Odinot

We enjoyed the route through the Snaefellsnes Penninsula and remote areas Westfjords, We were able to snag a reservation at Tjorhusid in Isafjordur which was a real treat. Driving through the snow in the mountains on a gravel road was a real adventure. We liked the Malarhorn guesthouse and suggest taking route 68 from beyond Holmavik on the way back to Reykjavík for wild beauty and staggering views. It was the only time we ventured off the route planned by Pauline and it was well worth it. Pauline was able to develop an amazing 7 day trip for us with very little lead time.

Thank you for your review Deborah! To me, the Westjords are the most beautiful part of Iceland. The remoteness is propably part of the beauty! The road 68 is indeed nice but has more gravel parts. In good weather it has great views for sure. I am glad you had a good trip!
