“A trip to Iceland is 99% going to be some sort of a road trip, it is known for its extravagant natural life including waterfalls, volcanoues, craters, beaches and even mountains not seen in its main city Reykjavik. It is very popular whilst in Iceland to take a tour or rent a car.”
In this gallery we roamed the South Coast with a tour group.
These are photos of the Sólheimajökull glacier a block of ice which used to fill this whole space which now looks like a lake. Our tour guide told us that each year a noticeable chunk disappears from the glacier.
Its Black Sand
One of Iceland’s unique features are the black sand beaches found in various places in the country. Coming from volcanic rocks there is not many country that have these.
Unusual Rock Formation
Another of Iceland’s unique feature are these hexagonal rock formation found near Vik.Running along rough beaches these are especially picturesque during the sunsets.
The following waterfalls are just two of thousands in the country. All incredible and flow all year round. Must visit a few while in the country.
Although I was in a tour bus, the scenes roaming the south were incredible and I’m sure if I was driving it would be a pleasure. From early morning to the sun setting it made for an incredible panoramic scenery.
“Travel isnt always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, even breaks your heart. But that’s ok. The journey changes you, it leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully you leave something behind”.
