Iceland is a truly enigmatic place. Despite being one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations, we still found tranquility on our visit. Outside the hectic golden circle, the roads seem to go on forever. Here, we found solitude in Iceland’s secluded fjords, serene black sand beaches and immense glaciers.
As we travelled through the Ring Road, we captured incredible sights. We saw puffins roosting on Cape Ingólfshöfði, broken glaciers floating in the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon and descended a the Thrihnukagigur Volcano.
We hiked through the incredible Dverghamrar Basalt Cliffs that looked like the home of giants and walked on the Sólheimajökull glacier, an experience we will never forget.
The most memorable parts of the trip for me however was our nights in some of the cosiest bed and breakfasts. In Hraunsnef country hotel, which served the best breakfasts and in the little hamlet of Seyðisfjörður, tucked away in the fjords.
Iceland is truly a land of contrasts and we tried to capture this feeling in our photos. We were captivated by the immense power and grandiose of the the Dettifoss waterfall to the historic and cosy charm of its turf houses.
