Dalatangi Lighthouse

Located in East Iceland, Dalatangi was the first lighthouse in the country. The drive offers a magnificent view out to sea.

The winding road to the lighthouse is gravel. It’s called Mjóafjardarvegur (953). It’s 45.9 km long and only open in summer. It’s pretty narrow. It's very steep with sections up to 18%.

The road is quite steep and requires slow, careful driving. Along the way, you'll pass the magnificent Klifbrekkufossar waterfalls tumbling alongside the road. Driving at night, or in poor visibility, is not recommended for drivers unfamiliar with the road. This road has lot of twists and turns. This is definitely one road trip that you want to record with lots of photographs.
