"The fog that chased us valley to valley as we retreated from Hornstrandir nature reserve. We outran it, but thick fogs are common here. If the weather in Reykjavik is decent then it's almost certain to be horrible there - the very same north-easterly winds that give sunshine in Reykjavik produce fog and rain up there. We must have been very lucky and half of the time the weather in Reykjavik must have been terrible, because we had some very good windows.
Hornstrandir is a claw-shaped peninsula attached to the rest of Iceland by a thin 6 km isthmus. Whereas the Westfjords are usually considered as Iceland’s least reachable area and – in virtue of their beauty – the country’s best kept secret, Hornstrandir constitutes the region’s most inaccessible and remote location and its hidden treasure. A cruel and still irresistibly charming land, facing the Greenland Sea, homeland of tales of trolls, elves and witchcraft."
