Iceland in 16 Days: Day 9, North Iceland, Skagafjörður

After a long night’s sleep in Akureyri (one of very few on the trip), we set out for Saudarkrokur, the largest village in the Skagafjörður fjord region of Northwest Iceland.

Along the way we stopped to photograph, farms, streams, and historic sights along the way.

This is a farm outside of Akureyri . The dandelions were in full bloom.

Iceland in 16 Days: Day 9, North Iceland, Akureyri

For the second consecutive day we went whale watching. Akureyri is situated  in a long harbor, and the water was much calmer. But the whales were not as playful. I captured no usable images.

Back in town we went scouting around, and I captured the above image of Akureyri from across the bay. It’s safe to assume I got wet taking this shot, the third time this trip (more coming up). In this case only my shoes got wet.
