The Magnificent Landscapes and Culture of Iceland in Pictures
Iceland’s landscape is a theatre of extremes – poetic, powerful, and unlike anywhere else on Earth. From the arching glacial bays, sprawling farmland and the mountain-lined fjords of its coastal townships, to the alien-like terrain of the far north, it’s easy to see why this enigmatic beast of an island has captivated travellers for generations.
Following in the footsteps of some of the island’s earliest explorers, I began my Icelandic journey in Reykjavkik, Iceland’s capital, before making my way to the north-eastern harbour town of Akureyri. Armed with a camera and my trusty tripod, the agenda was a simple one: I was here to have my breath taken away. I was not disappointed.
