In BIG Pictures: a journey through a wintry Iceland

The isolated, remote country located near the Arctic Circle is home to some of the most unique landscapes in the world, which is probably why it’s risen through the ranks to become one of Europe’s most sort after travel destinations -Iceland has that mysterious, end-of-the-earth reputation that most people can’t seem to get enough of.  With its huge glaciers, temperamental volcanoes, powerful waterfalls, bubbling hot springs and miles of wild untamed scenery, Iceland’s lonely lands are a nature lover’s paradise. Its party loving capital Reykjavík is also a fun-seekers mecca. Here’s our wintry journey through Iceland in BIG pictures…

Born in England, with a few family roots from Bavaria, and a heart in Scandinavia I've always been a bit of a restless soul. My first true adventure began as a six month voyage around South East Asia as a fresh faced backpacker and ever since I've lived a semi nomadic existence, clocking up over 40 countries on trips and living in Dublin, South East Asia and Australia. I'm a lover of US Road Trips, deserted beaches bathed in warm glow of a sunset, Cuban mojitos, easy-on-the-eye travel destinations far away from the tourist crowds and all things Scandinavian - from cloudberry liquors to Scandi Noirs. When not wandering the world, you'll find me walking my rescue dog in leafy South West London, strolling around the Brighton Laines on random day trips, hunting for photogenic landscapes or daydreaming about returning to my all time favourite places in the world; Havana, Copenhagen, Italy, Thailand and the frozen landscapes of a wintry Iceland.

    Iceland is definitely on my bucket list and after seeing these photos I think you’ve convinced me to go in winter not the summer! Very special scenery indeed!

    I’ve been to Iceland a few years ago and it’s indeed a magical place. But my goodness, these photos! I feel like I’ve been transported to Iceland. So vivid and alive.

    These are INCREDIBLE photos – that shot of Reykjavik from Hallsgrimskija (is it?) is so nice. I miss Iceland – we came before the snow started falling. I think the snow makes it so much more epic!

    Those are some beautiful pictures. Winter looks fabulous in Iceland. can’t believe that we haven’t been there yet. Planned on going and instead booked a ticket to Srilanka. probably this winter 🙂 Those blue lagoon looks amazing.
