Barðaströnd is the south coast on the West Fjords peninsula in Iceland; the peninsula that looks like a head of a duck. Like most of the beautiful West Fjords, it has many interesting places hidden here and there. The coast itself is a stunning area with mountain roads, lakes, seashore, rivers and waterfalls. The West Fjords have also been important from early on in Icelandic history and also in the Icelandic sagas. It is an interesting drive and almost isolated in an interesting way.
