WestFjords Iceland with a motorhome


Welcome to heaven!

Take Norway, Eire, Scotland (3 of my favorite locations), then add a dab of one thing completely distinctive… and also you get the breathtaking Westfjords in Iceland.

It’s not a big space, however round every nook is a view that makes your jaw drop. I feel I finished round 9000 occasions and nearly stuffed up a tough drive with pictures and drone footage! The YouTube video is simply going to include me going ‘wow’ loads!

There are many sizzling springs, a few of the largest cliffs in Europe, fjords, mountains, lakes, and even tropical white sand seashores (unsure how heat the water is although!)

You possibly can drive it in a circle, with a few off-shoots. Be warned, the roads are NOT for the faint-hearted. Some are nice, however some are gravel and VERY bumpy, though doable in a 2WD motorhome.

The worst have been the pretty steep inclines and descents (15% at one level!), on gravel, with completely no security boundaries to cease you sliding over if you happen to bought a hairpin incorrect… 😳

However don’t let that put you off visiting. It’s BEAUTIFUL and has been one of many highlights of the journey up to now. Don’t miss the waffle cafe- they’re scrumptious! Whales are usually seen within the fjord there too.

I used to be so fortunate to take pleasure in two days of sunshine earlier than the rain began, so I bought to play with the drone loads (particularly the ‘comply with’ mode). Simply watch out for the wind- there will be actually sturdy gusts whenever you flip a nook. Oh, and the birds attempt to assault the drone too! 😱

’Mo’ (the Adamo) has completed extremely well- she’s nonetheless trucking alongside taking care of me. I wasn’t positive how an computerized would cope on these hills, nevertheless it’s been nice and really easy to drive. Going again to a handbook is likely to be a wrestle!

However let’s not take into consideration that but. Nonetheless two extra weeks of this journey to take pleasure in first 🙂
