Markarfljótsgljúfur Canyon is a kind of hidden gem in the Icelandic landscape. 

This impressive canyon is not visited by many. Access to Markarfljótsgljúfur is either by a hiking trail or by a challenging and rough mountain road so it requires a well-equipped 4WD vehicle. But it´s very much worth the effort

Steaming stream in the Iceland Highlands

The Icelandic highland can be a barren place. 

Because of cold climate the vegetation’s growing period is only about two moths every year and the formation of soil very slow.  The mountains have left endless amounts of ash, sand and lava in the area but in between you can find beautiful spots covered in bright green  moss

If you dream of exploring the great outdoors, observing raw nature and volcanic phenomena, Iceland is undoubtedly one of the best places for this type of adventure

Because of the heavy rainfall, Icelandic has plenty of rivers and they are relatively large, glacial rivers and fresh water rivers and streams

The water in the glacial rivers is usually a milky grey and they can smell of sulfur. The flow volume can be enormous, they are ice cold and you need to be very careful around them. You won´t survive falling into one like this

This video delivers what the title promises - explore a land of black rock as you switch colors, from blue to red to green and everything inbetween.

Short drone movie from our amazing road-trip through Icelandic highlands - the remote but breathtaking parts of this spectacular island. It was my 9th trip to Iceland and I finally managed to bring a drone there and capture this beauty from the air.

Stakkholtsgjá is a well known gorge in the Thórsmörk area in the Icelandic highlands. But just next to it and most of the time overlooked by visitors is a beautiful ravine that´s much worth the visit. Surrounded by steep cliffs with a small freshwater stream at the bottom
