The Viknafjoll mountains of Skjalfandi bay used to be inhabited, but isolation and hard winters drove the original settlers away. The mountains have stood abandoned for more than half a century; all that’s left is the little red-roofed house across the bay.
Húsavík, Iceland. We had an incredible time here. Loved the whale watching, saw at least a dozen of humpback whales and really enjoyed just taking it easy and enjoying the view of the harbor. Click on the link for more info about this super picturesque town in Northern Iceland.
