In BIG Pictures: a journey through a wintry Iceland

Drive-towards-Selfoss

The isolated, remote country located near the Arctic Circle is home to some of the most unique landscapes in the world, which is probably why it’s risen through the ranks to become one of Europe’s most sort after travel destinations -Iceland has that mysterious, end-of-the-earth reputation that most people can’t seem to get enough of.  With its huge glaciers, temperamental volcanoes, powerful waterfalls, bubbling hot springs and miles of wild untamed scenery, Iceland’s lonely lands are a nature lover’s paradise. Its party loving capital Reykjavík is also a fun-seekers mecca. Here’s our wintry journey through Iceland in BIG pictures….

With roots in Bavaria, a home in England and a heart in Scandinavia I've always been a restless soul. My first true adventure began as a six month voyage around South East Asia as a fresh faced backpacker and ever since I've lived a semi nomadic existence, clocking up over 35 countries on trips and living in both Dublin and Australia. I'm a lover of US Road Trips, deserted beaches bathed in warm glow of a sunset, Cuban mojitos, easy-on-the-eye travel destinations away from the crowds and all things Scandinavian - from cloudberry liquors to Scandi Noirs. When not travelling, you'll find me walking my rescue dog in leafy South West London, wandering the Brighton Laines on random day trips, hunting around for photogenic landscapes or daydreaming about returning to my all time favourite places in the world - Havana, Copenhagen, Italy, Thailand and the frozen landscapes of a wintry Iceland.
