Landing at Keflavik International Airport, Alena and I couldn’t see much of anything out of the window. As is typical in Iceland, dense fog hangs around during the morning hours and lifts later in the day. Riding from the airport to Reykjavik, we were finally able to get a clear view of the landscape. In all directions there were vast lava fields with volcanic mountains in the distance. Throughout our travels in Iceland the landscape remained much the same. There was little doubt we were on a recently formed volcanic island straddling the mid-Atlantic rife where the North American and Euro-Asian tectonic plates are violently pulling the earth’s crust apart.
The following pictures are a few of the ones we took while explored the capital city and the more remote parts of the island. Needless to say, Iceland is a wild and amazing place that impressed both of us.
