The Adventure Journals

Iceland: Wild Horses & Wild Camping

Iceland has it all. It has a wild landscape with genuine wilderness. It has mountains, beaches, glaciers, geysers and waterfalls. It is a feast for the eyes and a tonic for the soul.

Iceland is a photographer's dream location. The famous midnight sun and endless variety in terrain make it a must visit destination for shutterbugs.  Circumnavigate the rim of a volcano before breakfast. Be back to the car for lunch. Then spend your evening watching a glacier crash into the sea. Iceland offers a lot of everything, so bring plenty of spare memory cards.

For this adventure journal, we joined forces with landscape and action sports photographer Rob Grew. We join him in Iceland, for a week long adventure through fjords, over mountains and across the glaciers.

Iceland has one road that circumnavigates the island. It is the lifeline that connects most towns and villages on the island. It also the best way to see vast swathes of the country’s wilderness. Between the tabletop mountains and deep valleys of Skagafjorour Rob encountered wild horses.

The friends spent a day climbing on and exploring the icefalls of the Vatnajökull glacier. The Vatnajökull covers 8% of Iceland’s land mass is the largest glacial mass in Europe. Also on the itinerary was the world famous Sólheimasandur plane crash. Just a few hours from the main road, this eerie tourist attraction is the site of a US Navy plane that crashed into a jet black beach in 1973.

Iceland is a non-stop whirlwind of natural beauty. This Adventure Journal is a celebration of that landscape. It is also a reminder of the fun you can have with a car, a tent, a couple of backpacks a great group of friends.
