Our final day in Iceland included an unexpected detour from our itinerary - the #Eldborg crater. We had planned to see Kirkjufell the night before we left, but as we made a pit stop in the Landbrotalaug #hotsprings , we noticed the magnificent and mysterious volcanic crater. After discovering it was hikeable, we were determined to reach the top. 🌋 Squeezing in the 2-hour hike before our afternoon departure time meant switching campsites and an early morning, but being the nomadic van-lifers we are, we made it happen. After waking up at 6:00AM (half of us anyway 🙋🏻‍♂️), we threw some snacks and a tripod in a pack and set off. 🚐 The precarious climb up the steep and jagged face of the crater dissuades most tourists, so we got to have a private sunrise hike through the surrounding lava field. We made it to the top 10 minutes ahead of schedule, giving us time to bask in what was the most uniquely “Iceland” experience of the trip. It was definitely off the beaten path, but that’s usually where the fun begins. 👣
Into the east. Such awesome memories from a road trip exploring the entire country.

Hot sun, hart rain, strong wind, snow, incredible silence, loud waterfalls and all of this before lunch time. Everything changes so fast at this trail but ... I have never seen more happy hiker as there.
This horse was part of a group that was fighting a lot with each other. Check out my stories tonight to see some K-1 horsepower! The Icelandic Horse is a unique breed that was brought to Iceland by Vikings 1000 years ago. You can spot many of them just beside the road. _____________________ TIPS FROM HARMEN nr. 1: CHECK THE BACKGROUND When you photograph a subject (like a brown horse) be sure to check the background of the subject. Sometimes moving an inch can mean all the difference. Often a clear background will separate your subject much better than a chaotic background. Also make sure nothing sticks out your subject. _____________________ Westfjords of Iceland (6/18): The Icelandic Horse Camera: Sony A7RII Lens: Sony FE 70-200mm at 134mm Settings: ISO 500 | 1/200 sec. | f/6.3 _____________________ #icelandichorse #iceland #westfjords #brownhorse #locationcollective #nordiciceland #mystopover #wheniniceland #icelandisawesome #folkscenery #beyondthelands_ #folkiceland #worldtravelscapes #escapeandwonder #folkgreen #roamtheplanet #wildernesstones #nomadict #escapeandwonder #depthsofearth #moodnation #artofvisuals #moodygrams #earthpix #earthoutdoors #earthoutdoors10k #ig_bestpicworldtravel #harmenvandervaart
Landscape: "Oh Dear, I Think We Might Become a Sweater” • Skafholtsrèttir, near Árnes, Iceland. — Icelandic sheep’s wool is dual-coated and consists of the long outer coat, called tog, and an inner coat called thel. When the wool is separated after shearing it is used for different types of wool products. And one of those is the lopapeysa, the traditional Icelandic sweater (there are four in this shot). It is characterized by a “yoke design” which is a decorative pattern surrounding the neck opening. The lopapeysa are typically knit from yarns that combine both the tog outer coat, and the thel inner coat. The lopi yarn used is not spun and contains more “air” and so has very good insulation properties. — TECHNICAL: Fuji GFX50S and a Fujinon GF 32-64mm f4 at 32mm.

The Northern Lights in the Highlands of Iceland 🇮🇸 in Sept 2018 🌌 with the Highlands Hotel Hrauneyjar in the background. This is my 💯th post since starting up this account in Feb 2018, with no association to my name (although some of you know 😉). The idea was that it would be about the pictures, and a way to get some constructive criticism, to help improve my photography, without the bias of friendly opinion. It hasn't quite worked out like that, as I haven't received enough criticism yet, but at least I'm still having fun and making friends along the way🙂 For post number 💯, I wanted to put up a particularly emotional moment for me, when myself, @fungkawah and @mintzlaffphotography stayed out till 3am in the freezing temps in the Highlands of Iceland in September 2018, in awe of the most spectacular aurora display, which photographs cannot do justice. I recall how at one point, all 3 of us stopped taking pictures, and were just ooh'ing and aah'ing in awe of the dancing lights that filled the sky, pointing out new aurora rays that were forming to each other, and just breathing it all in. My hands were frozen to the extent that I could no longer feel my camera's shutter button ❄️, but it didn't matter. As much as going to Iceland was something I'd always wanted to do, and about the photography and the experiences; coming back, I realised how much it was about the people these experiences were shared with, and the relationships that were formed. Life is about the people, and the relationships. I came back a changed person in many ways, thanks to this hobby of mine. It is exactly one month today, since I left Iceland, and I feel as if the transformation is not yet complete. Will you join on my journey to the next 💯? 😉 . . . . . #canonphotography #canon80d #canon #photography #photooftheday #astro #astrophotography #aurora #auroraborealis #iceland #icelandtravel #nature #naturephotography #naturelovers #codpza #northernlights #landscape #landscapephotography #nightskyphotography #offtoiceland #icelandhighlands #icelandwithaview #nordiciceland #travelphotography #travel #codpzatravel #hrauneyjar #rvkfoto #ig_auroraborealis #wideangle
Welcome to the community pool
Good morning #Iceland
Because I was in Iceland for 12 days, there was a pretty good chance that I’d get to see the aurora borealis at least once. One day in particular looked extremely promising. With both an aurora tracking/predicting app and a weather app in hand, my travel buddy and I kept monitoring when it might peak and where we needed to be to have the best chance at seeing it. We were so committed to making the most of this opportunity, we mapped our entire trip around it - and I’m glad we did. . Mother Nature put on the grandest of displays that night. This was my very first time seeing the aurora borealis so of course I was blown away but a some other people we met said they had seen the aurora numerous times and this was by far the most vibrant event they had experienced. How lucky am I?!? . I was so excited I couldn’t contain myself. As the lights danced across the sky, I would uncontrollably blurt out things like, “OMG! This is amazing!” Or “Holy $h1t…this is unreal!” Or worse 😄 I was downright giddy, like a kid on Christmas morning. . Have you seen the aurora before? What was your reaction?
Landscape: "Jölkusárlón Sunset” • Jölkusárlón , Iceland. — After an amazing day out on Breidamerkurjökull to see the ice calving site for Jölkusárlón with @glacieradventure , @adamholston and I hit the main ice lagoon for sunset.

This was one of my favorite waterfalls in Iceland! It is right next to Seljalandsfoss, the popular waterfall you can walk behind. We missed it on the map and had to come back to it - so glad we did! Take the walk to the left of Seljalandsfoss (takes about 5-10 minutes) and wear all of your waterproof clothing that day. You can hike into this canyon to get to the base of the fall if you’re willing to get soaked in the cold. Even if you don’t hike in, it’s worth the walk over to see it. You can actually camp between the two waterfalls if you need a nearby place to stay. What is a favorite hidden or lessen known find from one of your travels? . . . . .

Here maybe you can feel a bit why #alftavatn is one of the best camping sides ever for me ...
Thorleif 🖤 Thorleif got sold yesterday😢 We managed to have a year together .. an absolute GREAT and FANTASTIC year. He has not only given me an amazing trip to Iceland, but also given a lot of tours and experiences in Denmark. And not least, I have met some beautiful people through the Danish Land Rover Club 😎 It has been a very difficult decision and I have changed my mind several times. But in the end it's about health. I had a bad knee before I got him and it did not get better after 3 months in Iceland and over 10,000 km on the road. I have to drive with a support thing for my knee. So it was just not optimal. BUT in the sadness I’m really happy. The new couple are the perfect ones for having Thorleif! They going to travel with him to. They are planning at big trip to Mongolia 🇲🇳 I got a house... 😍 I’m moving to the country side in 2 months and the dream is to get a Discovery 1 again, though with automatic gear. I can’t wait to show you all my new house 🏡 Photo by the greatest: @albyball
. ...while out there, take time to enjoy brief surreal moments between light and darkness. - I still remember @aventouro driving fast so we won’t miss the 11 pm sunset at this waterfall. For a 3 day trip, we were lucky to have seen it. 📷 @aventouro / edit: mine
Una infinita spiaggia nera, desolata quanto affascinante. Km e km di sassolini neri sotto gli scarponi, in un su e giù di dolci collinette che si susseguono. E quando pensi che ormai sei nel bel mezzo di niente, e chissà quando arriverai alla meta, ecco che d'improvviso, superata l'ennesima collinetta scura, ti si apre davanti agli occhi lo spettacolo: il limpido colore arancione tenue del cielo la mattina presto, il mare e le stupende scogliere di Dyrhólaey in lontananza, la tanto nota carcassa di aereo abbandonata da anni su questa distesa nera, la fresca brezza del mare che scivola sulle tue guance. Come si fa a non innamorarsi di questa Terra, che con i suoi paesaggi riesce a parlare dritta all'anima? 💚 . . #viaggiamondo #iceland #sólheimasandur #planewreck #blacksandsbeach #walk #ontheplane #icelandtravel #icelandontheroad #icelandwonders #icelandscape #iceland71 #unlimitediceland #exploreiceland #inspiredbyiceland #wheniniceland #everydayiceland #visiticeland #icelandic #goldencircle #guidetoiceland #nordiciceland #icelandadvice #icelandwonder #extremeiceland #beyondthelands_ @juanitoviajero @canon.colombia #empiezaconcanon #arcticcirclelovers #dailyearthpic #mangiaviviviaggia

Another glorious day, the air as delicious to the lungs as nectar to the tongue. ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ - John Muir -
One of the cool parts about driving and walking through Iceland are the hundreds of random waterfalls on the mountain sides. This one was created by glacier runoff from the volcano named Eyjafjallajökull also known as E16. . . . #iceland #roadtrip #travelgram #travel #photooftheday #reykjavik #nordic #guidetoiceland #earthoutdoors #earthoutdoors10k #nordiciceland #shuttericeland #nofilter #exploreeurope #beautiful #icelandtravel #outdoors #atlastrails #agameoftones #agameof10k #like #follow #wanderlust #earth_shotz #moods_in_frame #icelandroamers #discoverearth #beatifuldestination . . 👋 @icelandsecret @guidetoiceland @earthoutdoors @earthpix @nordic.iceland @shuttericeland @earth_shots . . 📷 Shot on Canon 60D in 🇮🇸 Iceland
Chasing the Aurora. It’s a photographers dream to catch this beautiful piece of nature. Many strive for it but few get to bring it home with them. I was fortunate to get my fair share these past couple weeks. I really like this shot with the lone photographer on the hill. What a sight to see, all by himself up there with nothing but the vast sky just being lit up with the luscious green glow 😍 . . . #nordiciceland @nordic.iceland #iceland 🇮🇸 #icelandphototours #guidetoiceland #wonderlusticeland #iceland71 @iceland.71 @icelandtravel #artofvisuals #instagood #ig_iceland #sunrise #aurora #northernlights #depthsofearth @depths.of.earth #natgeotravel #ourplanetdaily #icelandtravel #goneawoliceland #iceland_photo_tours #ig_color #waterfallsfordays #special_shots @special_shots #earth_shotz #earthofficial @natgeoyourshot @natgeo @natgeo.photography #longexpoelite #longexpo_addiction @hubsplanet #hubsplanet

I may be physically at home, but mentally I’m still back in Iceland. Not because I’m sorting thru hundreds of images, which I am, but because it was one of those life altering experiences I feel quite fortunate to have had. Frequently throughout the day, I catch myself reliving moments of my time there. Thinking about the scale of the landscape, the alien-like terrain, the force of Mother Nature, the indescribable beauty of the aurora borealis. It was all quite spectacular and almost unbelievable. My hope is that thru my photographs, I am able to share some of the wonder I experienced during my 12 days in Iceland. . If you’ve made it this far, thank you for reading my rather long but typical length post. I know I write a lot, but I have a lot to say. In fact, I have a lot more to say but this isn’t really the platform for it. Which brings me to a question, If I were to write more lengthy blog posts about my travels, would you be interested? Would you take the time to read them? Or is that passé and a waste of time?
Landscape: "Sheep Jam on 32” • Skaftholtsréttir, near Árnes, Iceland. — I have a new blog post up on my website that chronicles the gathering and sorting of Icelandic sheep from the affréttur (common upland grazing lands), near Árnes.

To be able to experience this, this is the best part of traveling 🧡 ••••• To say I have experienced some of the coolest sights is an understatement. & to say I have a ton of places to still go is even a bigger understatement. ••••• I work hard to see these sights, hence the saying “work hard, play harder”. ••••• This will forever be my motto & I’ll do it now, not wait!🙌🏼 🎈Iceland. - - - - - - - - - - #livelovevoyage #travelblogger #travelphotography #travelworldwide #traveltheglobe #travelingtheworld #travelgram #travelingtheglobe #backpacker #globetrotter #traveltheworld #traveladdict #adventures #adventuresworldwide #prettylittletrips #travel_endless_dreams #primedestinations #girlsthatwander #thetravelwomen #roamingnanny #traveldreamseekers #postcardworthy #femaletravelbloggers #darlingescapes #sidewalkerdaily #nordiciceland #iceland #icelandscape #icelandtravel #unlimitediceland
Driving along the coast
Lady Aurora —————————————————————— Here she is in full force over Vestrahorn, Iceland. “Holy $h!t” were my exact words as we get out of the car. The lights were twirling and pulsating right before our eyes like galactic tumbleweed. Purple upon green ribbons flowing through the air ever so elegantly. We rushed over to the black sand beach and found some reflection pools formed from the low tide. Boy we were blessed with these pools. Reflections = double the color, double the fun!!! —————————————————————— For people wondering if they can see the northern lights with the naked eye, the answer is YES. It’s truly truly an otherworldly phenomenon. Be forewarned it is not easy to see the northern lights. If you’re ever in Iceland and wonder if you’ll be able to see the lights or not shoot me a message and I’ll help you out! ——————————————————————
After a long hike at skaftafell you are rewarded with a spectacular view overlooking a glacier named Svínafelsjökull. While it looks small from above, when you are standing on the glacier it’s like being on another world. Interstellar and Batman Begins were filled in this area. . . . #iceland #roadtrip #travelgram #travel #photooftheday #reykjavik #nordic #guidetoiceland #earthoutdoors #earthoutdoors10k #nordiciceland #shuttericeland #nofilter #exploreeurope #beautiful #icelandtravel #outdoors #atlastrails #agameoftones #agameof10k #like #follow #wanderlust #earth_shotz #moods_in_frame #icelandroamers #discoverearth #beatifuldestination . . 👋 @icelandsecret @guidetoiceland @earthoutdoors @earthpix @nordic.iceland @shuttericeland @earth_shots @discoverearth . . 📷 Shot on Canon 60D in 🇮🇸 Iceland

Perfectly aligned elements. Looks like a natural mirror of harmony.
Grace is finding a waterfall when you were only looking for a stream. And yes this stood true for me when I came across Dynjandi Foss waterfall. Expectation of looking for a water fall came across a mamoth of it. Drove 50 km into mud where the tyres weren't gripping , entire way covered in mist and you come across this majestic water fall after all that.

Landscape: "Dawn at Dettifoss, No. 2” • Iceland. — Dettifoss is the hands down winner in my book for places to photograph in Iceland, and it is decidedly photogenic. It almost does not matter exactly where you put your camera but it does come alive under the right light and conditions such as this time around dawn. The canyon, the clouds, the spray, the roar of water, the glow and sense of light were all instruments in a beautiful orchestra. All I needed this morning was simply to be there, to see it and hear it play. — TECHNICAL: Fuji GFX50S and a Fujinon GF 23mm f4. Image exposed at ISO 100 at f11 for 4 seconds.

At Hrafntinnusker they told me ... "better you go to #alftavatn because the weather will be more beautiful there today" ... I couldn't imagine because it's just a few km but they were so right. Always listen to the local people!!!
Just 5,3 km ... time runs so fast when you are happy ...
First view at #alftavatn ... one of the most beautiful #campsite I have ever seen.
