The Road to Akuryeri

Gravel Roads and Rainbows

semi-overcast 55 °F


Drove most of the day to the #2 (and proud!) city in Iceland Akuyeri. I'd maybe even say, based on weather, people, location and general vibe, this town should get #1 hands down.

Walked through the town in the evening, had a beautiful dinner at Rub 23 (you select the meat and the "rub" and they do the rest--also amazing fish miso soup) and got ready for the next day's journey to the East Fjords. P.S. These Lutheran Churches are ubiquitous in Iceland; remote farms with one home often have a church and cemetery next door.
