Heading North to the Westfjords


The next segment of our journey was a trip up North-West to the Westfjords – the oldest part of Iceland. As the tectonic plate (at least the American one…) is moving westwards, the Westfjords are being dragged away from the hotspot where new magma is building up.

The coastline looks quite different – especially the mountains and fjords are more rubble and dragged down by glaciers

As always there is water in Iceland and on this particual stretch of road it came down very nicely
