Standing on the summit of Iceland.
Earlier this week alongside @summitexplorers , I climbed to the highest point in Iceland, Hvannadalshnúkur at 2,110m.
Whilst our mountains are relatively small in comparison to other countries, getting to the summit requires a 25km round trip climb from just above sea level, navigating around the outlet glaciers that run down to the valley floor. The view from the top is just incredible, giving a visual over the whole of Vatnajökull, the biggest glacier in Europe.
We had super nice weather for the climb with clear skies and no wind the whole way to the top. Then right as I started to shoot on the summit, a wall of cloud rolled in, creating a nice dynamic atmosphere in the background.
So stoked to have finally made it up there 🤘🏼
