Stay at Skálakot Manor - a rural oasis in the heart of southern Iceland. Horseback riding excursions, available to beginners and experts alike, are a pleasant way to engage more deeply with the environment and fully appreciate the Skálakot farm, which runs adjacent to this cosy countryside retreat.
Our last snow trip was about two years back to Iceland. The mars-like landscape with brown barren expanses, glaciers jutting out and melting into a raging ocean are simply unforgettable. Why are we writing about this today? We're getting ready for our next snow trip in Japan! We've been looking forward to our trip to Hokkaido, the northern most island in Japan. Will you join us on our journey as we prepare for the trip?
Because it's located on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, Iceland is an incredibly active country geologically. There are more than 125 volcanic mountains in the country, a handful of which are still very active, and another handful that could easily awaken and become active as the country changes and grows. Iceland experiences a volcanic eruption roughly once every 4 years, though the past few years have seen one eruption or more each year. Because of this constant activity, a good portion of Iceland is covered in lava fields. #icelandvolcano#visiticeland
Snowy cabin & a hot tub ❄️ Just came back from an unforgettable 4-day weekend in Iceland. Bathing in a hot tub under the snow in the middle of nowhere felt so unreal 🙌🏼Have you ever been to Iceland? Curious to hear about your experience there! . . . . #panoramaglasslodge#thecabinchronicles
The outskirts of Landmannalaugar campsite, southern Iceland. The black lava fields surrounded by colourful mountains maken for great photography and an amazing hiking experience!😍😍😍😍 #wilderness#wheniniceland

Repost @shemakesmetravel 🇬🇧 From time to time I get a question if Iceland is worth a visit during winter. Hell yes! ❄️ I’m not going to lie, it’s freeking cold out there, but all those views are just astonishing. Look at this. It’s probably the most beautiful sunrise I have ever seen. 🌅 So, if you are thinking about winter trip to Iceland, don’t. Just do it. 💪 . . 🇸🇰 Články o Islande patria medzi najčítanejšie na našom blogu. Z času na čas dostávam otázky, ako je to na Islande s počasím v zimných mesiacoch a či sa tam ...
Get out your camera and tripod, there's a great chance of seeing the Northern Lights tomorrow! Grótta is a great place to photograph them and just a 10 minute bus ride from downtown. Photo by: @skiswithlions #visitreykjavik#reykjavik
Old fishing boat in the small town of Stykkishólmur. This town was also the film location for the “Major Tom” scene in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. Great movie by the way! 🇮🇸 • • • #latergram#iceland
Angel grounded by the storm ~ Took at least 45 of these shots at Skogafoss. But so many ruined by water and focussing issues. In fact this probably looks better because there were some droplets on my lens. I keep wanting to shoot landscapes, but I end up with better portraits. . . . . . #pursuitofportraits#gramslayers
Back to Iceland and the snow turning Gullfoss into a gorgeous wintry landscape! Ice also came with the snow unfortunately so this was as close as we could get, but a bit of winter sun and the glimpse of a rainbow and it is still making me oooo and ahhhh! Oh and kick my foot out in excitement! . . . #iceland#gullfoss
Puffin is a bird of prey, and of a tribe of puffins. He goes by a variety of goodies and is sometimes called, a little monk in the north "or, a little brother in the north". It is common for the puffin to be called a professor because of its appearance and behavior. Lundaungi is called a hut, but in the Westman Islands it is known as lundapysj #iceland#visiticeland

Summer weather in Iceland can be hit and miss. The month of July I was there was mostly heavy overcast days. Driving through western Iceland I spotted the sun temporarily breaking through the clouds and beautifully lighting up distance mountains. I quickly drove to a better viewpoint off the main road and managed to capture this special moment. #iloveiceland#bestoficeland
🇮🇸 Myvatn Lake is one of the most spectacular landmark site in Iceland. The intense blue color of the lake, combined with the rocky lava formation and the green fields nearby, make it for a very unique scenery. Everything feels almost like a painted landscape. Note that if you're a bird lover, the place is also quite famous for birdwatching! 📸 Andrew_Mayovskyy ✈︎ ✈︎ ✈︎ ✈︎ ✈︎ ✈︎ #travel#travelapp
КАК ПОЙМАТЬ СЕВЕРНОЕ СИЯНИЕ? 🌌 . ☝ Устраивайтесь поудобнее, сейчас будет ответ на главный вопрос жизни, вселенной и всего такого, и это не 42. . Ответ... - Я НЕ ЗНАЮ!..) .

Самолет DC-3 военно-морских сил США был вынужден совершить аварийную посадку прямо на пляже недалеко от исландского городка Вик. С момента аварии прошло уже более 40 лет, но причина катастрофы и даже ее точная дата покрыты тайной. Также нет точных данных, кто срезал крылся и хвост самолета.Сегодня место аварии DC 3 превратилось в одно из самых посещаемых мест в Исландии. Самолет спрятался за песчаным холмом и его не видно с дороги. Однако найти его не составит труда. Если будете в Исландии, обязательно стоит заехать туда. Тем более рядом расположен один из самых красивых водопадов Исландии - Skogafoss... • • • ———————————————— ...
