One of our stops on Saturday (for the rest of this series, click here) was Svörtuloft, one of two lighthouses that mark the blunt western end of the Snæfells Peninsula. This bright orange tower was about a 8 km (5 mi) drive southwest of Hellissandur. After leaving the main road, a smaller paved road wound tightly through lava fields for ten minutes before we arrived. Svörtuloft sits atop breathtaking cliffs, the sun was shining, and the windy morning had calmed to a gentle breeze. We sat a picnic table by the tower to eat lunch before wandering across the cliffs, which were covered in moss and orange/yellow lichen.
