North West Coast of Iceland

We drove up the coast towards Siglufjörður.

Between Dalvík and Ólafsfjörður is a 3.5 kilometre one way tunnel. It's a good idea to drive slowly, and watch ahead for the headlights of other cars. One way has the the right of way the entire length of the tunnel. The other direction has many side pockets to park in, while the traffic comes the other way. It was an interesting drive!

When we got to Ólafsfjörður, we found out we couldn't get through to Siglufjörður. An 11 kilometre tunnel is currently being constructed.
So we turned around and drove back down the coast. We had right of way through the tunnel this time.
It wasn't a wasted trip, the peninsula and mountains scenery was stunning!
