Just spent the holidays in Iceland. After spending about 3 months in Africa in the last year, I kind of got an urge to visit some place completely different before the year ended, Iceland happened to be on my destination-list for a long time. So Iceland it was!
Visiting Iceland in December means a limited amount of daylight; roughly from ten in the morning until four in the afternoon. But, there was lots of snow, implying no chance of seeing any northern lights, if there even was any recent sun-activity.
Here is my visit to Southern Iceland in 10 pictures:
1. It’s Christmas
Candles are lit at the graveyards by family of the deceased.
The rift valley of Iceland
5. Gullfoss waterfall
One of the most popular waterfalls in Iceland.
6. Skogafoss in winter
7. Glacier walk
8. Glacier walk
View from the glacier during the walk.
The black beach with some rough weather that stormy afternoon, just before sunset.
10. Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon
Reindeer doing what they do best. Panning shot, it was almost dark.

A hike to the black waterfall.

Waterfalls just blew away 🙂
