Iceland- Goðafoss

The first stop of the Diamond Circle in Northern Iceland is Goðafoss, the waterfall of the gods. It is spectacular and beautiful. Not the biggest of all waterfalls but one of the most beautiful.


Impressions from Akureyri, Iceland

The largest city in northern Iceland, Akureyri, is a charming place. With a population of only around 18.000, it sounds small, but as the biggest place for hundreds of kilometers it feels like the center of the universe :)The church of Akureyri or Akureyrarkirkja was designed by Guðjón Samúelsson, the architect who was also responsible...
