A Beautiful Drive in West Iceland

Snæfellsnes Peninsula

The highway Útnesvegur in West Iceland wraps around Mt. Stapafell and the Snæfellsnes peninsula. The drive has many curves, rises, and falls, and makes for a beautiful way to spend a day. In this photo, the town of Arnarstapi (Stapi) is just down the winding road. A small fishing village sits at the base of Mt. Stapafel. The snow-capped volcano in the distance is the famous Snæfellsjökull (where Jules Verne started his journey to the center of the Earth!). Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
