Snæfellsnes | Iceland

Day 9 In Iceland

Snæfellsnes

Yet another one of Iceland’s beautiful landscapes. The peninsula of Snæfellsnes is about a two hour drive from Reykjavik, and spans about 90 kilometers. The area consists of marshes, black sand beaches, mountains, glaciers, and a few small towns.

As I walked towards the ocean, there were these massive walls made of hardened lava that you had to walk through.

Fisheye lenses... not very flattering. But anyway, here's me in the lava walls.

One of the beaches even has the remnants of a 1913 shipwreck strewn across the shore, which was super cool to me because I kind of have an obsession with shipwrecks.

I love the volcanic sand… If you look carefully, theres a couple kissing in the bottom left corner.
