Went to this amazing canyon in east Iceland last week called Stuðlagil, for a while i have wanted to photograph kayakers going down this section and finally it happened, after a morning paddling Grímsá river i conviced my friends to take a short evening paddle one hour away, got my drone out and yes crashed it in the wall of the canyon and it landed in the water, 1 meter under but it luckily got retrieved and the pictures where fine, to bad they all got underexposed so pretty much useless, still learning the boundries on the drone that is now destroyed. At least i had my trusted sony camera as well and got some pictures from the top of the canyon. But i guess i will have to convice someone to go with me there to paddle again to get better angles from a drone, or down from the water as this place is just breathtaking! • • • • • • #adventureiniceland #whitewaterkayaking #iceland #sonyalpha #icelandexplored #kayakiceland #traveliceland #easticeland #travelshot #placesoftheworld #remoteiceland #amazingtravel #travelstribe #iloveiceæand #bestoficeland #icelandsecret #ferðavefurmbl

Kverkfjöll, crossed Vatnajökull in one hour with a snowmobile to reach this remote place on the north side of the biggest glacier in Iceland. This is a hot area melting the glacier in this spot, if you look closely you can see some smoke coming from the ground close to the tiny human that is my father. • • • • • • #kverkfjoll #hotspring #iceland #remoteiceland #vatnajokull #snowmobile #adventureiniceland #calving #glacier #naturephotography #sonyalpha #a7rii #ig_iceland #getlost #instatraveling #natgeo #landscapelover #explorer #awesome_earthpix

Jökulsárlón, the most famous glacier lagoon in Iceland, it sure is a sight! To think that just 55 years ago this was a small pond, now it is the deepest lake in Iceland, about 250 meters deep. • • • • • • #glacierlagoon #jokulsarlon #icelandroadtrip #route1 #breidarmerkurjokull #iceland #loveiceland #climatechangeisreal #glacier #glacierretreat #traveloceland #visiticeland #inspiredbyoceland #visitvatnajokull #vatnajokull #discovericeland #icelandphotography #icelandnature #ferdavefurmbl

ABC (amazing blue ice cave ). Beautiful cave but not so easy to access, we had to jumb over quite a few smaller crevasses to reach this location last winter. • • • • • • #igiceland #iceland #icecave #underworld #blueice #glacier #vatnajokull #visitvatnajokull #southiceland #visitoceland #skaftafell #localguideofvatnajökull #visiticeland #inspiredbyiceland #deepunder #caving #secretnature #icelandsecret

Eyjafjallajökull eruption in 2010, few volcanos here in Iceland are now preparing for future eruptions, hope the one 10 km from my house will behave for 70 more years at least! • • • • • • #lifeunderavolcano #icelandvolcano #iceland #volcano #eyjafjallajökull #eruption #lava #icelandroadtrip #livinginiceland #volcanoisland #visiticeland #exploreiceland

Eruption on fimmvörðuháls 2010, this is bit east of eyjafjallajökull volcano, it lasted for 23 day's. The day after it stopped its big brother, Eyjafjallajökull erupted witha big bamg closing down much of the air traffic in europe for day's. This lava in the picture made then the highest lavafall in the world, 200 meters. • • • • • #volcano #volcanoeruption #lava #lavafall #fimmvorduhals #eyjafjallajokull #volcanoiceland #icelandvolcano #iceland #visiticeland #inspiredbyiceland #fireandice #snowmobile #exploreyourbackyard #lifeiniceland

Fire and Ice, this is Eyjafjallajökull eruption, it took place in 2010 and caused enormous disruption to air travel across western and northern Europe. The picture is of Gígjökull an outlet glacier from Eyjafjallajökull, now 9 years after this picture was taken, there is not much left of it. • • • • • • #volcano #volcanoeruption #eyjafjallajökull #gigjokull #eruption #volcanoeruption #iceland #icelandadventure #powerofnature #earthforce #glacier #climatechange #icelandtravel #icelandadventure #icelandicgirl

Visited this cave not to long ago, quite a hike to get there, but defiantly worth it. Bit intimidating location, you can see snow in the ceiling, the reason for it getting there are occasional flash floods that enter this cave. Better be there at the right time. • • • • • #iceland #icecaves #caving #igiceland #sonyalpha #icelandphotography #exploreiceland #longexposhots #longexpoelite #batis18 #a7rii #boueice #glacier #fstoppers #66north #beyondthelands_
