Ike, Helen & Traff took a drive through western Iceland to Ísafjörður, passing through Reykjafjörður, Vatnsfjörður , Mjóifjörður, Skötufjörður, Hestfjörður, Seyðisfjörður, Álftafjörður and Skutulsfjörður. That’s a lot a fjörðurs, and the word means fjord. A fjord is an elongated narrow inlet of water by the coast caused by the submergence of a valley which has been overdeepened by glacial erosion. The valley is then submerged when sea levels rise after glaciation.
Points of interest include a small colony of seals and an old farmhouse (Litlibær) that is now a cafe serving fabulous cakes and waffles. Enjoy these photos of a very picturesque day:
