Driving along the south coast of Iceland you will find hundreds of waterfalls big and small. Some better known than others but also many hidden gems like this one that you will most likely have all by yourself if you happen to find it
The Icelandic horses today are the same breed that came with the vikings 1100 years ago. They are friendly, docile and easy to handle but also enthusiastic and self-assured.
They still play a large part in Icelandic life both for leasure and work as farmers still use them to round up sheep

Winters in Iceland can be unpredictable but every winter we will have few snowstorms so bad that roads have to be closed and you don´t see the house across the street. Well, every winter so far.
The climate has been changing a lot in the last 10-15 years here up north. Two years ago it was endless storms, sometimes with rain, sometimes with snow and it was snowing in late May and that summer was cold and wet. Then last summer was the sunniest since 2000 and the winter so far has been the mildest in history. I still have some flowers in my garden and this is Iceland not Italy!
Something is happening with mother nature, that´s for sure
This old fishing boat has made it´s final journey long time ago and where the fish used to be flowers are now growing
A ravine made out of basalt columns in south east Iceland. One of those many hidden gems most people, not living in the area know about and you can have all by yourself if you find it that is. And further upstream is a beautiful waterfall
The most amazing northern lights blast I’ve ever seen from March last year. You could look in any direction and see them dancing over your head.
Just outside Reykjavik so you can see the orange glow from the city lights in the background
Located just around the corner from the popular Skógafoss, Kvernufoss is defintely a hidden gem in the area and most likely you will be the only people back there.
You can even walk all way way behind the waterfall for an even more amazing view
Skógafoss is one of the most popular tourist destinations along the south coast of Iceland. If you are travelling that way in July/August my advice is to get there either between 8-9 o’clock in the morning or later at night after 21 or 22h.
You’ll still have more than enough daylight at the time to enjoy the view and less people around
This phenomenon, we call aurora borealis or the northern lights still amazes me after all these years and the countless times I´ve witnessed them.
They are not always the same of course but on a nights like this you become speechless
Djupalonssandur beach is a magical place. A lava wonderland. By the beach is this small freshwater lagoon with all this lava formations all around
