Final day here in Iceland 🇮🇸 After spending the night in the main city drove back up Northwest to an area that I had visited previously but didn’t see much due to the heavy rain and fog. Lucky enough today it was just a light drizzle and managed too see some amazing scenery. Iceland has been one amazing experience one day too the next. I will definitely be back again soon. Until next time 🙋🏻‍♂️🇮🇸  #iceland   #wheniniceland   #guidetoiceland #Icelandphotography   #Iceland   #winter   #glacier #landscape   #wheniniceland   #igersiceland #everydayiceland   #icelandtravel   #inspiredbyiceland #traveliceland   #hiddeniceland   #beyondthelands #lostiniceland   #visiticeland   #whyiceland   #guidetoiceland #extremeiceland   #icelandphotography   #bbctravel #earthpix   #planetearth   #worldplaces   #nakedplanet #wildernessearth   #discoverearth   #vik

Day8: Taking a warm cozy bath in the early morning in a hot spring right in the middle of nowhere is a luxury that I really enjoyed and once in a lifetime experience for me. It was really cold outside. The air was clammy, it was even raining a bit. I jumped into a natural hot spring near the campsite, looking over the fjords with birds cracking in the distance was utterly amazing. The rest of the day, I spent driving around the fjords toward the next waterfall #dynjandi. Again, the weather was so moody and the roads so curvy and slippery. The scenery was epic! I had to drive really carefully for I was so often stunt by the light coming through the clouds hitting the gigantic fall-colored mountain ranges of the fjords. Waterfalls everywhere, big and small rushing through the cracks and nooks of the stony grey and red walls of the mountains. Some areas were filled with lush green moss covering the rocks and some white spots of water mirroring the little sheep ungratefully roaming around not caring what beauty surrounding them. Finally, I arrived at the #dynjandi waterfall that I could see from a far. When I came closer, I was amazed how humongous this thing was. I spent a couple of hours taking in everything I could, observing other people marveling that huge waterfall and feeling confirmed by their looks that not only I was the only one who felt small and insignificant among this unbelievable breathtaking nature. On my way back, I spent a few hours taking pictures for my art project in a moss field. I spent most of the time jumping from one rock to another not to destroy the moss. Fortunately, there were enough rocks I could stand on. But it was abit unfair to see the sheep stepping on everything, chewing and staring at me while I was balancing my way like in a jump and run video game. And the strong harsh wind didn’t really help me. ——— #westfjords #dynjandi #icelandtravel #inspiredbyiceland #offtoiceland #traveltheworld #lostiniceland #stayandwander #theimaged #travelgram #wanderlust #travelphotography #exploretocreate #nature #instagood #photography #instadaily #eyeem #guidetoiceland #visiticeland #landscapephotography #justgoshoot

The Fossá River’s epic journey from glacier to sea includes this 400-foot plunge over the waterfall at Háifoss, where it carves a deep gorge in the lava fields of the southern Icelandic Highlands. #iceland #haifoss #highlands #icelandichighlands #waterfall #wheniniceland #icelandtravel #beautifuldestinations #earthpix #amazing_shotz #landscapelovers #yourshotphotographer #moodygrams #discovericeland #icelandscape #optoutside #discoverglobe #visiticeland #natgeotravel #everydayiceland #guidetoiceland

‘Glacial Ghosts’ Older Icelandic’s have seen first hand the affects of climate change throughout their lives. What were once colossal glacial rivers stretching far towards the sea, now slowly recede up the cliffs. Further and further back each year, in decades, this will just be another mountainside. Where I’m standing will be like walking on air. A glacial ghost of its former glory and mystery. _________________________________________ #iceland #wheniniceland #icelandtravel #glacier #glaciers #icelandicnature #moodyphotography #trappingtones #nature_wizards #climatestrike #vatnajokull #climatechange #whyiceland #iceland_photography #climatechangeisreal #guidetoiceland #beyondthelands_ #earthporn #earthfocus #igersiceland #exploreglacier #glacierhike #fineartphotography #landscape_captures #icelandair #inspiredbyiceland #globalwarming #natgeoyourshot #ourplanetdaily

The beauty of a dying glacier💙 The Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon is truly one of the greatest wonders of Iceland. It's a lake formed by retreating ice of the 1,000 year old Vatnajökull glacier. Big icebergs of an incredible blue color break, melt and float around the lagoon. The Glacier Lagoon flows through a short waterway into the Atlantic Ocean, leaving chunks of ice on a black sand beach. Because the lagoon connects with the ocean it is composed of a sea and fresh water mixture which causes its unique color. It formed in 1930s when the glacier started to melt because of the risen temperatures. In 1975 the lake was about 8 sq km, now it's 18 sq km. If you ever go to Iceland Jokulsarlon is a MUST see. Due to its nature lagoon is always different. The first time I saw it I almost cried because I was so impressed and overwhelmed. ♡ Красота умирающего ледника💙 Ледяная лагуна Йёкюльсаурлоун (Jökulsárlón) по истине одно из самых удивительных чудес Исландии. Это озеро, которое сформировалось из-за тающего льда тысячелетнего ледника Ватнайёкюдля. Большие айсберги нереально голубого цвета отрываются, тают и плавают по лагуне. Ледяная лагуна через небольшой пролив впадает в Атлантический океан, оставляя куски льда на черном пляже. Т.к лагуна соединяется с океаном она состоит из соленой и пресной воды, поэтому вода такого уникального цвета. Она образовалась в 1930х годах, когда ледник начал таять из-за поднимающейся температуры. В 1975 озеро было около 8 кв км, сейчас оно 18 кв км. Если когда-нибудь будете в Исландии, вы обязательно должны посетить это место. Из-за своей природы лагуна всегда разная. Первый раз, когда я ее увидела, я почти плакала от впечатления и потрясения. #anya_travel #anya_iceland

The biggest news from this trip: 📣WE ELOPED IN ICELAND!📣 . The main reason we planned this trip was because we wanted to get married here! 👰🏻🤵🏻We didn’t want a tradictional wedding that wouldn’t represent us. We wanted to get married doing what we love the most and that is traveling. We definitely had the wedding of our dreams. We got married on a (windy) cliff. We celebrated in the most beautiful black beach. We toasted for our love in front of a waterfall. Eloping might not be right for everyone, but it definitely was right for us 💖 . . We were so lucky to have amazing photographer Michalina from @icelandelopement taking these beautiful pictures of our day ✨ 🇪🇸 La noticia más grande del viaje 📢¡Nos casamos en Islandia!📢 La razón principal por la que planeamos este viaje fue porque queríamos casarnos aquí. No queríamos una boda tradicional que no nos representara 🤷🏻‍♀️ Queríamos casarnos haciendo lo que más nos gusta y eso es viajar. Definitivamente tuvimos la boda de nuestros sueños. Nos casamos en un acantilado. Celebramos en la playa más hermosa. Brindamos por nuestro amor frente a una cascada. Es posible que casarse asi no sea la decisión correcta para todos, pero definitivamente fue la mejor para nosotros 💃🏻🕺🏻. . Tuvimos la suerte de tener una fotografa genial con nosotros. Michalina de @icelandelopement nos hizo unas fotos preciosas en nuestro dia! 💖 . . . . #elopement #couples #justmarried #iceland #travel #photography #travelphotography #icelandtravel   #icelandtrip   #exploreiceland   #guidetoiceland   #wheniniceland   #icelandexplore #igiceland #unlimitediceland #visiticeland #traveliceland    #triptoiceland #wheniniceland #icelandicnature #Guidetoiceland #icelandroadtrip   #unlimitediceland #discovericeland #travelphotography   #icelandlove #everydayiceland   #neverstopexploring #inspiredbyiceland   #bestoficeland #photographer

Morning light. Excellent moment captured by @_fabiozingg • Revival of a volcano. That morning we woke up on a mountain top in the Icelandic Highlands. It was the one I wast most looking forward to photograph. Before the sun has risen, everything was hidden in the clouds and we didn‘t see any structures of the lakes and mountains surrounding us. We knew everything could change within minutes and didn‘t go back to sleep even if we were super tired. With the first sunrays fog began to rise and the clouds rolled over the mountains. It literally felt like standing on top of a burning world where more and more comes alive with the clouds disappearing. Cheers to our most surreal and beautiful morning in Iceland spent with my best friends. #hellofrom #iceland #icelandtravel #icelandscape #morninglight #sunrise #daybreak #dawn #clouds #volcano #hike #camping #travel #travelgram #beautifulworld #lovetotravel #travelphotography #seetheworld #earthpix #vacationrental

Road tripping around Iceland...how has it already been a year!?! ... We are currently throwing out names of what country we want to try and visit next. Until then we can’t wait to explore more of our home State. ... Anyone have some recommendations of where we should visit next? The kids each have their top choices of where they want to visit 🙊. . . . #icelandroadtrip #icelandringroad #icelandtravel #icelandwithkids #ringroadiceland #visiticeland #guidetoiceland #secreticeland #travelmadfam #kidswhoexplore #exploringfamilies #selfoss #roadtripwithkids #europeroadtrip #travelingfamily #familyadventure #goadventuretogether #lpkids #tinybigadventure #kidswhotravel #adventureswithkids #takethekids #welltraveledkids #jetsettingkids #adventureparenting

In mid September @kellyfarmin , her parents! and I spent two weeks traveling around #Iceland. We rented a #van and circumnavigated the island clockwise. Such a unique place - #volcanos , #glaciers , #waterfalls , sheep, friendly people, amazing #landscapes and so much more. I took way too many photos, but it’ll be fun to share a few from each day. Day 1, we landed mid morning (after our redeye flight), picked up our van, stocked it up (duty free, @costco , and the local grocery store Bonus) and hit the road. We didn’t have a ton of time but enjoyed a great hike into the Glymur Waterfall. #travel #waterfall #getoutside #icelandtravel #exploremore #adventure #vanlife #vacation #icelandadventure #discovericeland

The fall is full on at the moment even in the Southern Finland. Not color spectacular yet but we'll get there. Here's a picture of @lauriheik in Iceland. Somehow the weather there in May and in here now feels really similar.

«Я БУХОЙ БЕЗ ВИНА, ТВОЯ ВИНА!»🍷 ⠀ Во всем мире сложилось мнение, что русские- самая пьющая нация. Гуляя по дождливому Рейкьявику, все мы пришли к выводу, что это глупое, приумноженное в разы мнение человека, который никогда не видел как пьют, например, немцы или англичане. Ещё в юности, проводя ночи напролёт в тусовочный Айя-Напе на Кипре, я вдоволь насмотрелась на еле стоящих на ногах британских студенток, а от неадекватного поведения немецких подростов на Майорке мне вообще плохо до сих пор😂 ⠀ Но так думаю ни одна я😁 Учёные провели целое исследование, благодаря которому появилась вот эта статистика. ⠀ Итак, ежегодно Всемирная организация здравоохранения собирает и обрабатывает информацию об алкогольной зависимости жителей на основе количества спиртного, выпиваемого в различных государствах мира. Исходя из полученных данных и определяются самые пьющие страны, и Россия этот список Топ-10 не возглавляет!😁 ⠀ Почётное первое место занимает...та-дааам: ⠀ 1. Беларусь 2. Украина 3. Эстония 4. Чехия 5. Литва 6. Россия 7. Италия 8. Южная Корея 9. Великобритания 10. Франция ⠀ Так что, ребята, продолжаем пить😂 ⠀ А вы знали, что есть страны, где алкоголь запрещен? В мире насчитывается 41 страна, где алкоголь полностью под запретом в 2019 году. На территории скандинавских государств по решению правительства даже разработаны специальные программы по запрету распития спиртных напитков. Одна из них под названием «Трезвый город» подразумевает ежегодные недели свободы от зависимости во всех населенных пунктах. ⠀ Узбекистан - одна из первых стран бывшего СССР, где появился запрет на выпивку. Алкоголь здесь не рекламируют, не продают и даже не производят. Люди, которые выпивают, могут подвергнуться судебному разбирательству. Есть и пожёстче правила, например, в Иране за продажу алкоголя- смертная казнь! ⠀ Ну как, смогли бы путешествовать без винишка?😆 ⠀ #машадайнамрепортажа #путешествияпомиру #путешествия #путешествие #мирмоимиглазами #вокругсвета #визасша #авторскиетуры #travel #travelblog #travelblogger #travelphotography #traveling #яисландею #исландия #iceland #icelandtravel #icelandscape #icelandtravel

Our home on wheels while exploring Iceland. And for a tip don’t book a vehicle/motorhome through Nordic Car Rentals as they will try to scam you in any way they can.

Avete mai visto questo originalissimo segnale stradale? Se sì, significa che siete passati vicino alla Silfra: una delle fratture formatesi nella famosissima area nelle quali la placca tettonica euroasiatica e quella nordamericana divergono. In Islanda, ovviamente. Questa frattura si trova nell'area di Þingvellir ed è piena di acqua dolce che arriva direttamente dal Langjökull. Un'acqua super limpida nella quale ci si può immergere. Se siete interessati in questo genere di attività troverete diversi tour operator che vi proporranno sia snorkeling sia immersioni con l'utilizzo di bombole. Le mute che vi danno sono stagne ma le mani e la faccia saranno un po' al freddo 😜 (i guanti non sono impermeabili ma aiutano molto). . #iceland #visiticeland #islanda #viaggioinislanda #icelandicadventure #neverstopexploring #viaggio #viaggiare #travelingiceland #icelandtravel #icelandic #loveiceland #north #nord #inspiredbyiceland #bestoficelansld #icelandtravel #exploreiceland #travel #photography #nature #travelphotography #wanderlust #inspiredbyiceland #tourguide #tourleader #silfra #Þingvellir

I’ve always had to make my peace leaving far flung locations all over the world. Life’s fragility and chaos are the only thing we are guaranteed on this planet of ours and sometimes it’s good to take a moment and remember that life moves so much faster than we give it credit for. That tomorrow is never guaranteed and that each adventure could easily be our last. It’s that thought that constantly pushes me to hike further, travel farther, and love deeper. . . . . . . . #sonyalpha #icelandtravel #greatnorthcollective #inspiredbyiceland #everydayiceland #moodygrams #mystopover #alphacollective #myunitedjourney #beyondthelands_ #topicelandphoto #guidetoiceland #bestoficeland #absoluteiceland #igersiceland #roamnation #agameoftones #TLPicks #shotzdelight #themysteryprOject #globe_people #viewbugfeature #earthportraits #travel #pixel_ig #earth #explore #trappingtones #BeAlpha #roamtheplanet

I love this picture from Seljalandsfoss waterfall in Iceland 🇮🇸 💙. Iceland has SO many waterfalls it seems like there’s one around ever corner. And just when you think you’ve seen the best one then there’s another even more spectacular!! . Seljalandsfoss is one of the more popular waterfalls in Iceland and for good reason! You can actually walk behind it! I’m not going to lie, it was pretty amazing 💙. . Keep in mind if your planning on visiting make sure you go early or late in the day otherwise you will be surrounded by lots of tourists and tour busses! . . . . . #loveyourtimetogether #familytravel #familyadventure #bucketlistfamily #instavacation #passportready #wanderlust #travelwithkids #adventurefamily #strongerthroughtravel #wanderingfamily #youtakethebestvacations #parentswhowander #roamtheearth #tourist #travelgram #icelandtravel # #travelaroundtheworld #travel #nature #traveladdict #familytraveler #artofdestinations #iceland 🇮🇸 #seljalandsfosswaterfall #seljalandsfoss
