The Hallway

One of the main reasons I first wanted to visit Iceland was because of all the volcanic and geothermal activity. Over the years I’ve been lucky enough to visit lots of stunning locations all over the country and seen it first hand. It’s a real reminder of the power and beauty of nature and the planet that we all live on.
