Lost In Nature: Iceland

Lost In Nature: Iceland

We’ve been dreaming about visiting Iceland for long. We wondered how it feels to get lost in those beautiful landscapes, to get lost in nature. We imagined Iceland as the last untouched wilderness in Europe. As it often happens with places we dream too much about we had high expectations. Iceland exceeded them so easily… We simply couldn’t imagine such beauties until we’ve seen it with our own eyes.

We spent 18 days in Iceland and drove all around the island. Though we have a lot to tell you about this amazing country we want to start with showing you the variety of its natural treasures. Because when it comes to nature Iceland has it all. I mean really ALL.
