Iceland in 16 Days: Day 13, Snæfellsnes Peninsula, Kirkjufell Mountain

Shortly after leaving Breiðavík where the wind had been surprisingly calm at night and the next morning, the wind kicked up. It was very windy when we caught the ferry in Brjánslækur. And it was still windy and cloudy when we arrived in Stykkishólmur. Howling is more like it, at about 40 miles per hour.

The weather was not that conducive for photography, so we decided to tour the Snæfellsnes Peninsula. Towards sunset, the wind stopped blowing as hard, and there were some breaks in the clouds. We waited at Kirkjufell Mountain hoping for some decent light at sunset and were rewarded.

There is much to do and see on the Snæfellsnes Peninsula, but we allowed a single night.
