Siglufjörður became my new favorite Icelandic town within minutes of my mom and I driving into this splash of color tucked between mountains and one lane mountain tunnels one the northern coast. It was not assessable to car until the horse path was widened for automobiles in 1940. Even then, access was limited by seasons until the tunnels were built in 2010. The tunnels are quite the experience. They are one lane….but two way. Stop off areas are place at regular intervals to allow cars to pass each other. I took a video while driving through the tunnels, which you can see here.
