... I like more than a great road trip, We've a few under our belt but the 100K trip to Latrabjarg may be the best ever, the scenery is just amazing, you have to see it to get it but the road winds alongside a huge sea inlet (Greenland sea for those who care) the road is gravelled but in the Jeep we have you can still move at pace, the route is littered golden sandy beaches, snowy mountains and small random hamlets.
