A whole day to explore the Snæfellsjökull National Park – LOTS of walkling done!
Started off the day with the recommended walk from Hellnar to Arnastapi. This walk weaved around the cliffs and coastline and around each bend was another impressive vista. Tons of birdlife as well – including one variety who decided to swoop on our heads Alfred Hitchcock style as we waved our camera tripod around in defence!
We stumbled across this very cool abandoned house as well.
We drove around to Djúpalón and Dritvík – impressive black sand beaches and at Djúpalón there was rusted shipwreck remains strewn all over the beach from an English trawler wrecked in 1948.
Next was Öndverðarnes where we drove out to a lighthouse and jagged cliffs filled with more birds. Hoped to spot some puffins but no luck to be had!
Lastly was the scoria crater Saxhóll where we hauled ourselves to the top for the view before stumbling back for dinner!
