ÍS: Driving to Seyðisfjörður

east1

Seyðisfjörður is one of my favorite little towns in Iceland. Tucked into a cozy valley at the base of a fjord, this artsy community is full of color and quirk. The drive there from Egilsstaðir (a rather mundane city) has merit on its own. A drive up over a mountain provides spectacular views of Egilsstaðir (pictures 3-5), a mountain plateau covered in snow most of the year (above and below), a stunning waterfall (picture 6), and breathtaking views of Seyðisfjörður from above (last two photos).

  1. Me and a friend went over the pass in the bad storm in September 2013. On bikes. The road was completely snowed in, but apparently, we had less problems than the car drivers, and actually a lot of fun 🙂
