There are many places to road trip in this world and heaven knows that I have I done many. There was one unforgettable road trip that has always stayed with me, and that was through the Hval Fjord in Iceland. In fact, both of my most memorable road trips have been in this country. The journey in this region of Iceland was indescribable and left me short on words, which is nearly impossible to do. Photos can only express what we experienced in the Hval Fjord, so I will let my personal photos speak for me.
My friends and I decided to rent a car for a few days while we were positioned in the capital city, Reykjavik. On one of our road trip days, we headed north on Route 1 and then east toward Reynivellir, which looped us around the Hval Fjord. We continued on to Akranes for lunch and the lighthouse, then back to Reykjavik from which we came. We also took several side roads that lead us to many extraordinary and picturesque locations- off the beaten track, so to speak.
It was the autumn season when we visited Iceland, which brought out the colors from the seasonal change into pure magic. There were magnificent golden hues on the land and in the trees. The air was crisp and clean, while the sky was mostly clouded, and with the appearance of an occasional rainbow. We also met unexpected four legged friends along they way- wooly sheep and my favorite, brown Icelandic horses.
A picture paints a thousand words. I created a photo journey in this post, since I felt that these personal pictures go a long way. So be sure to continue to the end of this page, all the while getting inspired to create your own memories along the Hvalfjörður -Hval Fjord!
