A Photo Guide around the World

Iceland ...

... the Land of Fire and Ice.

With regards to our travels, 2016 will be remembered as the year of ôVolcanic Islandsö. In December 2016 another long-cherished dream of mine finally came true. And so, our watch began - 6 days filled with waterfalls, hot springs, northern lights, snow storms and strong winds.


For me, Iceland with its natural beauty is one of the most amazing landmarks on earth, and I enjoyed visiting the country during winter because of the spectacular colors. In December when daylight lasts only for 3 hours everything is tinted in pastel. Sunrise and Sundown are perfect for postcard like pictures, and once the night arrives the hunt for the northern lights starts.

Kleifarvatn is the largest lake on the Reykjanes Peninsula in Iceland, situated in the southern part of the peninsula.
At KrřsuvÝk, dramatic red, green, and yellow coloured hills frame an expanse of steaming volcanic vents and boiling hot springs.
