Another drop dead gorgeous or eye candy day - take your pick. . 110km of gravel road , 40 km of sealed roads and four mountain passes. Let the photos speak for themselves today
Fjord, mountain pass, fjord, mountain pass, fjord, mountain pass, fjord ......... Get the picture
With waterfalls thrown in
And the odd roadworks. Might is right !
A delightful village
And a delightful coffee break
And a chance to get all the dirt off the bike. I think they use Calcium Chloride and other anti freeze and pro sticky stuff on the roads so best to get it off before it all sticks and cakes hard
Then the tunnel. Two thirds of the way thru the 6.5km tunnel it unusually branches which I guess makes it a forking big tunnel !
Now here is the punchline or should I say the deep and meangful philosophical point for the day. Just at the tunnel entrance is a turn off to a no exit road that leads to the small town of Flateryi. "So what" you may well say. Well I just have to tell you - wait for it - that this just proves the old adage that "Flateyri will get you nowhere "!
And on that very happy and satisfied note I rode the bike into the town of Isafjordur where we stay for the night. I warn you now however that work has now commenced on the next terrible pun. Be warned !
