Stalking the Northern Lights in the Land of Fire and Ice
Imagine standing in the dark of night, staring up at the sky as the aurora borealis paints a breathtaking display of color and light above. The air is crisp and cold, but our hearts pound with excitement as we witness one of nature's most spectacular shows. The stars shine brightly around and behind the pulsing northern lights. We can't help but feel small in the face of such grandeur, but at the same time, connected to the universe in a way that is hard to describe. As we explore the rugged countryside of Iceland, we'll come across waterfalls that seem to dance with rainbows, the mist from the falls creating a magical aura around them. Traversing miles of moss-covered ancient lava fields, we’ll marvel at the subtle beauty of the stark landscape. In the autumn months, the rolling hillsides turning from a lush summer green to a rich golden hue that's simply mesmerizing. We’ll be struck by the picturesque beauty of the small villages with red-roofed white churches that dot the landscape. Shafts of sunlight peeking through the clouds will illuminate the countryside, highlighting the unique features of the terrain. And when we find ourselves walking behind a flowing waterfall, we'll sense the rush of the water as we take that perfect photo, capturing the essence of the moment. But it's not just about capturing the perfect picture - it's about experiencing the wonders of Iceland with all our senses. We'll explore the iconic Kirkjufellfoss waterfall and the Kirkjufell mountain in the background, trying to find the best angle to capture their majesty. We’ll, smell the salty North Atlantic and feel the wind on our faces as we overlook the steep and rocky coastline and sea stacks of the Snaefellsness Peninsula. At the Black Church of Boudir we’ll visit the church yard and cemetery and have some time to walk the trail down to the black, volcanic sand beach. We’ll see icebergs floating in the Jökulsárlón Glacial lagoon and find diamonds of ice shards on black sand Breiðamerkursandur beach. Iceland is a land of wonder and awe-inspiring beauty, a place that will fill our senses and leave us forever changed.
