25 Nautastígur Path Shipwreck at Djúpalónssandur on Snæfellsnes Peninsula, Iceland

At the southwestern end of Snæfellsnes Peninsula is Djúpalónssandur. Turn off Útnesvegur (574) at Road 572 marked Djúpalón. From the parking lot, follow Nautastígur Path (Path of the Bull) for about 330 yards to reach the beach. Along the way, you will notice chucks of rusted metal. These are the remnants of the British trawler Epine GY7. 14 seamen drowned when the ship sunk on March 13, 1948. As parts of the wreck washed ashore, it was decided to leave them as a memorial.
