01-Sep-2023 -- During a two week road-trip through Iceland together with a friend of mine, I took the chance to visit the some confluence points.
By coming from south, from the lake Mývatn, we passed the Þeistareykir geothermal power plant on the road Reykjaheiði and reached the chosen junction to a dirt road, around 30 km beeline south from the confluence point 66°N-17°W. Roadworks took place on this road. They are going to strengthen the ground with a thick layer of ballast. Luckily they were on lunch beak while we were passing by. Around 5 km beeline to the confluence we reached a turn-off with a broken road sign pointing north. By following this way we stopped at a gate after another 350 m. Four kilometres later we parked the car and set off on foot. It was a gently rise direction NNE. I reached the closer location by walking across grass, moss and other small groundcover plants. This alternates with loose stony terrain. Soon I reached the point zero at the confluence 66N-17E and could take the needed photos. In the picture to the north you can recognize the sea. After 6.5 km on dirt roads we reached the road Reykjaheiði again and continued out trip direction northern coast and Húsavík.
This was my eighth visit of a confluence point during a trip through Iceland. It was an easy to reach visit and my northernmost ever.
