Iceland 2016: Siglufordur Penninsula

We were blessed by another sunny day for our day in Akureyri. That meant that we should spend time hiking, and forget about museums and other city-things. I looked at the map and decided that the Siglufordur Peninsula was worth a trip.

We started off at the Dalvik visitor center asking for a hike. We were given a map of all the hikes in the area, and recommended a couple of easy ones. Well, finding the trailhead was a little challenge, but once again we quickly discovered how rugged the terrain was. We did get pretty amazing views though!

Driving further down the peninsula, we found more fishing towns, and gorgeous waterfalls set amongst cliffs in the road.
We finished off with a short hike at a local bird refuge, which did indeed have plenty of birds to look at. Clouds started rolling in and we drove back to town just as it was raining.
