The walking track to Herjólfsdalur – The Valley of Magic

Herjólfsdalur is intimidatingly beautiful, whichever angle you look at it. It looks like a giant natural amphitheatre, with stupendous rocks rising up on all sides as you enter the valley. The walk along the top ridge is one not to be missed. The distraction rate is very high, and there’s a great density of spectacular sights and features along the way.

Vestmannaeyjar! – Þar sem hjartað slær…!

I was drawn to the islands of Vestmannaeyjar at first sight. I saw their mysterious shapes on the horizon, and it was as if there’s an unexplained energy emanating out of it. I just had to go there. The landscape is incredibly beautiful, and that yearly Þjóðhátíð festival they have in August – in one word: geWELDIG!

Het landschap is niet van deze wereld, en dat jaarlijkse Þjóðhátíð festival dat ze in augustus hebben – in één woord: geWELDIG!
