Borgarfjörður (or close to the end of the world)


After our time in Myvatn we took the road towards Egilstadir and then there decided to head further up the north as the south looked rather bleak (many tourists and quite bad weather). In the end we opted to go to Borgarfjörður which is considered a hiker’s paradise due to the many marked tracks (quite seldom in Iceland) and the beautiful landscape.

On the way there you cross the desert like interior parts with “the queen” visible in the background

In a small cottage on the road (only a restaurant and fuel station) last time there used to be a partially disabled fox – now it seems the disability didn’t hinder it in reproduction Zwinkerndes Smiley
