Iceland, July 2009

Iceland has an incredible diversity in its landscape: mighty waterfalls, long fjords, huge glaciers, black lava beaches, green valleys, moss-covered hills, spectacular lakes – and until the beginning of July it is always light around the clock. Many destinations can also be easily reached by plane, you don’t have to struggle in the car along the ring road around the whole island. We were lucky with the weather: despite the umbrellas in the suitcase, there wasn’t a single drop, but mostly sun.

The photos show the Gullfoss waterfall, the Blue Lagoon, the waterfall of the gods Goðafoss, the port of Húsavík and the largest European glacier Vatnajökull in the Skaftafell National Park.
