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.
The land of Mordor. Just kidding – but it looks like it, doesn’t it?
Lakes in the crater of volcanoes.
Lively (and very cold!) mountain rivers.
Incredibly green landscapes.
Golden sand beaches.
White sand beaches.
Charming little cottages and farms that blend in with the landscape.
And this is still planet Earth. Yep, Iceland:
It is the wilderness we dreamed about. The place where we felt the incredible beauty and the immense power of nature. Where getting lost is the best thing that can happen.
