East Iceland in Pictures

East Iceland has some of the best weather in the whole of Iceland. Running from around Höfn in the south east to just south of Þórshöfn in the north east it is a forgotten corner of the island nation. With minimal towns, deep fjords and small waterfalls it is a calm corner of a violent and fiery landscape. In the south glaciers and ice dominate the landscape. Wildlife is found along the rugged coast which is protected by a series of lighthouses.

This series of images was taken during the summer months as we meandered up the coast. Starting from the glacial lagoons west of Höfn and heading north to Bakkafjörður, the town furthest east from Reykjavik a range of experiences and weather conditions were encountered.
