Q: Have the roads to Látrabjarg cliff, Route 612, and to Rauðasandur beach, Route 616, the West Fjords, improved since the last time we came, approximately five years ago?

A: We asked our expert, photographer and editor Páll Stefánsson, for advice. He reports that those two roads are no better than they were five years ago, although, he felt compelled to add, they are considerably better than they were in 1967.
