What to do if you have little time : Mjoifjordur
Half a day
Beautiful fjord, the best we've seen. Before reaching the fjord, we pass by a pass from where we have a great view. From here begins the descent. You can drive along the fjord on its north side by a track more or less feasible. At the end of this track, is the flagship Dalatangi. We wanted to go to the lighthouse but the track becoming less feasible and more narrow, we decided to turn around. However, it is to do so the fjord is beautiful.
Access : at the start of Egilsstadir, take Route 92 south on 5.5 miles, then left on Route 953 in against-low.
2 to 3 hours

Access : at the start of Egilsstadir, take the road north 94 to Bakkagerdi. This route passes through impressive landscapes.
