Follow my wife and me on a 3-week trip of Iceland.
Day 9 in Iceland From Bjarkalundur to Borgarnes (327km).
For me it was obvious, just drive and do the extra mileage and make a few less stops on our way. Road 60 was not very exciting and so was the first stretch of road 54, this made my aim for Snæfellsnes easier to achieve. And round lunchtime we drove gravel road 570 to Snæfellsjökull.
Close to the Glacier we made our lunch stop. After lunch we continued the road close to the glacier to the south side of the peninsula. Back on to road 54. The mountain on the picture is used in the Renault advertising in The Netherlands.
I was pleased we had taken the detour; it was worth the extra km, and next visit I will spend more time over there. Borgarnes is a nice little town.
