Hvalfjörður Tunnel

This tunnel travels under the Hval Fjord, the "Fjord of Whales." During WWII, a naval base in the fjord served US and British warships during patrols in the North Atlantic. The HMS Hood made one of her last stops here before the battle with the Bismark.

Completed just a few years ago, the four-mile tunnel saved an hour by going under he fjord rather than driving around it.
