Iceland

On this page you will find an overview of all my articles, reports, photo and travel tips for trips to Iceland. It's about a road trip with my old Land Rover Series II and Tipi tent to Iceland and about ice-cold polar snorkeling in the Silfa fissure. Four years later I traveled to Iceland again, this time to the south. It was my first trip to the Covid-19 lockdown and meant a lot to me after a 6-month without travelling.
