We started the day with another quick drive around the lake and a short walk through a lava field before beginning our trek west. We stopped in the quaint little city of Akureyri where we broke for brunch. After a quick tour of the town we started what was our longest straight drive of the trip. We headed up into the Westfjords with a goal of getting to the most Western point in Iceland (and of Europe).
The drive through the Fjords was tough, largely over rough gravel roads riddled with pot holes. These roads winded there way along the edge of cliffs with little to no guard rails in sight. We eventually we made it to the town of Patreksfjörður where we were able to fill up our car with gas. We then headed around the fjord to catch our most amazing sunset over a picturesque white sand beach. Before the sun had completely set we made our way to end of the Látrabjarg Peninsula. This Peninsula juts out with jagged cliffs and at the very tip has a small little lighthouse.
We found a nice spot on the beach to park the car where we had our final homemade dinner, followed by our second show of northern lights.
