It’s been almost two years since I was in Iceland, and after booking a flight there last night (we’re returning in August on our way to my sister’s wedding) I realized that I hadn’t posted any photos from what was the most majestic (and epic) day of the entire trip.
A 14 hour tour of the South Coast of Iceland, culminating in the magical and breathtaking (literally, it was so cold) Jokulsarlon – the glacier lagoon.
Here are my attempts to capture that magic.
This was the volcano that erupted back in 2010, this little farm sits right at the base (don’t worry everyone left safely during the eruption as it moved very slowly)
The black sand beaches of Vik were a quick stop on this epic tour of the south coast but well worthwhile, a spot I’d love to have spent a whole day exploring, but we had a long way to go to get to Jokulsarlon…
Feather Canyon was our last stop before we made it to the glacier lagoon, and offered a chance to stretch our legs with an uphill, and a little icy, hike to take in the views.
Jökulsárlón – The Glacier Lagoon
The most magical, awe-inspiring place I have ever visited. It was icy cold, windy and just out-of-this-world. Ice, ice baby.
