The safe harbour of Ólafsfjörður

by Marie Schellens I did this with my ONAK canoe

A quick second test of my Onak before winter brings the whole of Iceland into a deep winter sleep. On a weekend roadtrip north, I managed to convince my friends to try out Onak in the safe fishing harbour of Ólafsfjörður. Only now I see on the map this beautiful lake we could have explored instead of the harbour. But I don't think my friends would have joined. Excited, but a bit scared, they joined me for a couple of rounds between larger boats, seaguls and fish processing warehouses, watched over by the fjords mountain walls now and then crowned by gentle clouds.
