Photographer's Note

If you are looking for a house in a quiet place, I think I found what you need ! There are a few works to plan, but no vis a vis, an outstanding view on a fjord, a very large land and a very low price. Well, there is no water, no electricity and you have to drive at least one hour on a hard track road and then a pass to go to the nearest shop ... Well, you understood this house is probably not for sale because no one would buy a house in such a isolated place. But abandoned houses such as this one are something you see very often in the Western Fjords area in Iceland. The few towns in the region are far from everything, so you can imagine how it is the case for such houses in the middle of nowhere !

The photo was token on the road 622 that makes the tour of the peninsula between Arnarfjörður and Dýrafjörður fjords. It is probably the hardest road I drove on in Iceland, even worst that many in the Highlands of Iceland ! Driving on this track road was an adventure, but I will tell you about this in my next pictures ;)
