At the tip of the peninsula, there are many picturesque places to stop, such as Þúfubjarg bird cliff (this involves a short walk away from the main road) and Djúpalónssandur beach where a rocky path brings you down to an impressive black beach. On a clear day, you might get a nice view of Snæfellsjökull glacier, an old volcano surrounded by lava fields.

It is quite an experience. It is also possible to book a boat trip on the fjord of Ísafjarðardjúp (30 miles).  You will stay overnight in this area, in Ísafjörður or in the nearby Suðureyri, a small fishing village nestled between high mountains.
DAY 6
Day 6: ÍSAFJARÐARDJÚP-HÓLMAVÍK-HRÚTAFJÖRÐUR/LAUGARBAKKI
Today you travel to a new part of Iceland driving along Ísafjarðardjúp, one of the least inhabited areas of the country apart from the highlands. The landscape is impressive, with its winding roads along the various fjords. In earlier times, there were quite a few farms in this area, but because of its isolation and the lack of flat land, farmers have vacated this difficult area. Because there are no farms in this area nowadays, it is mostly uninhabited. After driving around quite a few of these fjords, you continue over Steingrímsfjarðarheiði plateau to the village of Hólmavík. This is a small and friendly village, where you can do some shopping, take a look at the witchcraft museum and fill your gas tank! After this, you drive south along the agricultural Strandir coast. This area is famous for the quantities of driftwood that are found along the coast. Finally, you drive to the Hrútafjörður area to stay overnight either here or in close by Laugarbakki.
DAY 7
Day 7: SKAGAFJÖRÐUR-SIGLUFJÖRÐUR-AKUREYRI-MÝVATN
Today you continue your drive east. Along the way there are many places that you can visit, such as a seal museum, a small gorge with a beautiful waterfall and Hvítserkur, an enormous rock in the sea. You can also visit a turf church in Skagafjörður as well as the Glaumbær Turf Farm Museum. Next, you will arrive at Akureyri, often called the "Capital of the North" and here you can enjoy some shopping and sightseeing.

A walk is definitely a good idea! Another interesting place to visit is Námaskarð solfataras, with its boiling, grey mud pools, yellowish sulfur deposits and the unforgettable smell.  You can also climb the dormant volcano Mount Hverfjall or visit Grjótagjá and Stóragjá, small gorges filled with hot water.  And of course you can visit the Nature Baths, where you can take a relaxing bath in the natural water, rich in minerals.   In the afternoon, you drive to Húsavík where you will find a whale museum and another local museum.  Be sure to spend some time at the picturesque harbor where you can also book an optional whale watching trip.

You can walk down along a rocky path to reach the edge of the fall to fully appreciate the 44m drop. For the next part of the trip you have a choice of two paths:  you can either drive along the coast of the peninsula, Melrakkasletta, or you can take the shorter mountain pass. Your final destination for today is the village Þórshöfn, one of the most isolated fishing villages of the northwest.  You will stay in this area over night, most likely in the "art-hostel" of Ytra Lón on the Langanes peninsula.

It's possible to make an optional boat-trip on the lagoon, which lasts ca. 40 minutes and takes you closer to the icebergs. You will also be provided with great opportunities to take spectacular pictures of the icebergs. Then, take some time to visit Skaftafell national park and walk to Svartifoss waterfall, (1½ hrs walk in total) before continuing along the south coast. You will cross Skeiðarársandur, an outwash plain of black sand, at the foot of the glacier. Then you have the opportunity to stop at the interesting basalt columns of Dverghamrar.

Now, drive to the glacier tongue Sólheimajökull to get an up close view of this unique site. Next, you should visit Skógar folk museum, a fantastic exhibit of old artifacts and other handicraft.  Then you visit Skógafoss, a beautiful 200 feet high waterfall.  Continue on to Seljalandsfoss, a lovely waterfall which is very special.

Continue your drive to Þingvellir National Park, where the ancient outdoor parliament was founded in 930. This area is also very interesting from a geological point of view, since it’s situated on top of the mid-Atlantic ridge where two of earth’s tectonic plates slowly drift apart. Because of this, you can hike down into a fissure (named Almannagjá) created between the two plates. From there, you will drive to Reykjavík where you can explore the capital city.
