The Northern Lights in Iceland
Seeing this natural phenomenon with my own eyes is one of the most incredible things in my life. After a journey of about 2 hours in the off-road Jeeps, we’d given up hope of seeing the northern lights. That is, until one of the drivers jumped out of the Jeep and immediately started taking pictures with his camera. At first, we didn’t know what was happening. Until he started hauling us all out of the Jeep. Capturing the northern lights with my camera was one of the highlights of this trip.
Black Sand Beach
Black Sand Beach is an overwhelming experience. We were fortunate to have a travel guide who kept us away from all tourist spots. We were therefore able to really immerse ourselves in the breathtaking nature of Black Sand Beach. The beach with its jet-black sand and thundering waves is a unique experience.
The Skógafoss is an impressive waterfall in the south of Iceland. It’s situated in the Rangárþing eystra at the foot of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano. The Skógafoss is the emblem of Iceland. Unfortunately, we didn’t get to discover many bars or restaurants. We had a really strict programme which left us hardly any time for this :D.
