We rented a car and drove to this part of Iceland which is less visited by tourists. Off the beaten path, as it were. There were farmland and farm houses, small villages, lava fields, fjords, glaciers, waterfalls, sea cliffs, seabirds, and even Icelandic horses that...More

This winter (February 2019) I drove straight from the Reykjavik airport to Grundarforjdur (Kirkjufell Mountain) to spend two nights on the Snaefellsnes pennisula. That was too short of a stay but I had some some great luck with the weather. Tuesday afternoon, I got some...More

The amazing mountain (actual place is called Kirkjulfellfoss in the town Kirkjulfell) made famous by the epic Game of Thrones series. Looks surreal when you imagine it was shot with the nearby lake frozen. Lovely nature about 2 hours drive from Reykjavik

I was really impressed with our day trip out to Snaefellsjokull. We spent the day driving around the entire peninsula, taking in the sites, stopping in small villages along the way, and taking photos. There was never a shortage of things to see and the...More

This isn't like an american park. It's more "protected land". There's no gates or borders. It's like entering a state or city limits parts are curated but others are just land.
