The bike climb begins on Vestfjarðavegur Road near Hrafnseyri which is an isolated settlement on the northern shore of Arnarfjörður in the municipality of ísafjarðarbær.
Stunningly beautiful climb.
This extraordinary bike climb is in Westfords, a large peninsula in northwestern Iceland. This is a very mountainous region of Iceland and great destination for cycling. The climb is on a dirt road that is easily manageable on a road bike.
