In the north of Iceland, just below the Arctic circle, there is a remote area of isolated fjords where people no longer live. It is a paradise for traveling birds that stay here for the summer and one of our favorite places of the north. After a ride from Akureyri along the coastline of Eyjafjörður, we leave the asphalt for a bumpy mountain road with plenty of little streams to ford. Where we leave the vehicle, we continue our journey on foot. We will hike from one fjord to another fjord over a saddle the mountains that is only accessible on foot. On this peaceful place we'll have lunch looking over the vibrant bird life in the most magnificent bay just by the polar circle.
