    Icelandic Route 66

    Abandoned diner /gas station by the old highway nr. 1. in Iceland
    This once a must-stop place for every family traveling out of Reykjavk city (Capital of Iceland), has now been shut down and abandoned for 20 years due to a tunnel that bypasses it's location.
    I have many good childhood memories from there and re-visiting this place in it's current condition was quite surreal.
    This closed part of the highway is 60miles long.
    The road hardly sees more then two or three cars a day
    If you’re a fan of challenging bends, with great views, long fast straights and little to no traffic this is the road to drive.
    This place is located in the bottom of Hvalfjrur, South-Western Iceland.
