During a two week road-trip through Iceland together with a friend of mine, I took the chance to visit the some confluence points.
This visit was an very interesting and ambitious one. After a visit of the small town Sykkishólmur we came at the road Helgafellsseitarvegur. 4 km beeline away from the confluence point we took the turn-off on the road Bjarnarhöfn direction northwest. Just 2.5 km later we had reached the area of the Bjarnarhöfn Shark Museum. We took an overview over the museum, its surrounding and the reception room. We didn't paid entry.. So I started my trip uphill from the museums area direction west. In the beginning I saw a drying house, which had hanging meat of sharks for drying. Now I chose my route above some sheep pastures direction northeast. Now, at a altitude of about 140 m and still 1.300 m to go, I chose a steady rise. The terrain changed from grass overgrown into "fresh" loose stony ground. Sometimes the ground slips down when you walk on it. In some cases it was advantageous to take sheep tracks. 200 meters higher, I reached the vicinity of the confluence point 65°N-23°W. Unfortunately the confluence dance took place on one of the loose stone fields. Imposing was a rocky formation which looks in its profile similar to a guard, watching down to the confluence point. The view from the confluence 65°N-23°W to the north and also in the panoramic image is fantastic! You can see a small island named Akureyjar and in the northwest you can see the next land tongue of the peninsula Snæfellsnes, called Grundarfjarðarbær. Caused by the sunlight, the time of the day and a few clouds, the light was perfect and offered a beautiful coloured landscape. After my around two hours lasting confluence hike I reached the car, which was parked at the tiny Bjarnarhafnarkirkja.
This was my eleventh visit of a confluence point during a trip through Iceland. It was my westernmost and most sweaty visit on Iceland, but with the most impressive views!
