Roadtrip in Iceland

Iceland is trendy these days. We did a roadtrip around the island and had an amazing experience. We created a lot of memories amongst the family and fortunately we  took some photos during the journey so we can share parts of them. Most photos are from the Westfjords and then the southern part of the country.

Silfra (Silvery) is a underwater canyon in Lake Thingvellir. The water is +2°c all year around and is totally free from any life, meaning no fish or green life. This results in 100 m visibility which is the most underwater visibility in the world. We did some scuba diving guided tour which was amazing.

Þingvallavatn or Lake Thingvellir has very clear water and is full of trout

When hiking in Iceland you have to stop frequently to enjoy the view.

When you live far from a grocery store, it’s good to have a small boat to go fishing.

Lake Frostastaðavatn close to Landmannalaugar. I just love the island in the middle of the lake and how it fits nicely into the mirror image of the background.
