DINNER: For dinner, we drove into Djúpivogur, a cute little town less than fifteen minutes away. This was the largest town we had seen since our time in Reykjavik.
DAY 5: We drove for much of the day around Iceland’s beautiful fjords (winding coastline). We stopped in a bunch of tiny towns along the way: Breiddalsvik, Stoovarfjorour, Faskrudsfjordur and Reydarfjordur. When I say tiny, I mean extremely tiny. Some of these towns looked more like small neighborhoods but locals were really friendly and seemed quite used to travelers coming through.
HOTEL: At night, we stayed in Guesthouse Egilsstadir-Lake Hotel. We can’t recommend this hotel enough! It was a historic Icelandic building nestled against one of the most peaceful bodies of water I’ve ever seen. The hotel’s restaurant is farm to table and it’s phenomenal. It’s also located in walking distance of a tiny little town that has a nice big gas station (with a few groceries) so you can restock up on snacks.
