Day 3: Tyrðilmýri – Snæfjallaströnd – Grunnavík
(8-10 hours travelling)
In the morning we go again to Tyrðilmýri. The road ends here, so now we depart into the wilderness … We ride along the coast Snæfjallaströnd (“Snowmountaincoast”), partly above the cliffs on narrow paths and partly down on great sandy beaches. Crossing screes and snowfields we then go steeply uphill to the plateau Snæfjallaheiði from where we enjoy a panoramic view over the fjords of Ísafjardardjúp. We cross the plateau, then descend to the bay Grunnavík. Overnight stay in the old farmhouse of Sútarabúðir (sleeping bag accomodation).
