500 images goal after Iceland trip!

I'm glad I reached the goal of 500 uploaded images, utilising the last fifty pictures taken this summer during a trip to Iceland.

For those, like me, does not have the courage to face the exploration of the interior of this magnificent volcanic island with a jeep and hiking equipment, remains the option of simply doing the island tour with a regular car. I think most of the Iceland attractions can be seen even just doing this ride along almost the entire circumference of the island.

Arriving in the north of the island, in the bay of Husavik, you have opportunities to make a fishing trip dedicated to whale watching.

During the same tour is also possible to observe colonies of puffins, sea birds from the famous red beak.

The geothermal area of Hverarond offers a vision of countless gaisers surrounded by fascinating colors.

You can take a walk on the flooded crater of the Viti volcano.

There is also to see the waterfall Dettifoss, the most powerful in Europe

Resuming the journey toward east you meet small farm villages. Almost always have typical churches ...

Here white waves come from the sea on the black sand ...

The colonies of seabirds that nest on the rocks ...

In the port of Hofn the fishermen unload the fruit of the peach..

Then, continuing the tour, to the south you meet the great glaciers that terminate into lagoons, facing the sea ...

The icebergs with a characteristic blue color ...

Often streaked by black volcanic ash ..

Thermal power plants in geothermal areas ...

And finally, lots and lots of water coming down from the glaciers forming beautiful waterfalls ...

I recommend doing this tour at least once in your life. The contact with nature can regenerate the spirit often oppressed by confusion for those who live in large cities... as well as having the opportunity to take some great pictures!

Many thanks for your comments! If you will visit Iceland consider also these other amazing advantages. Also in the desert you can often find gas stations with self-service restorants and areas toilets with washbasins with hot water facilities. Hot swimming pools are everywhere available. Wireless internet connections are available everywhere often without any password. The criminality is practically nonexistent. The lady who ran our guesthouse in Hofn did not give us the keys of the door of the house because there was no need to lock the door. The feeling of freedom that reigns in this place is really great.

When I was living in Newfoundland Canada my Dad was stationed in Iceland. He took hundreds of beautiful photographs years ago. I still love to look at those photos today. Yours remind me so much of his, but with even more color, beautiful!
