Iceland is a land that makes us feel how alive our planet is. The south coast reveals impressive waterfalls, volcanic landscapes of immense variety and a world of breathtaking ice. The contemplation of glacial lagoons such as Jökulsárlón invites us to think about the accelerated melting of these millennia-old ices. Although we feel really small in front of these translucent walls tinged with blue, the nature remains fragile when it comes to the hands of Human species.

90 photos of a roadtrip in Southern Iceland

This portfolio will take you to the heart of the most famous sites that can be discovered in winter. Seljalandsfoss, Gulfoss, or Skógafoss are some of the most impressive waterfalls on the Road 1. A walk of one hour from the Skaftafell car park will also take you to Svartifoss, a waterfall surrounded by basaltic columns (read our article on waterfalls).

The lunar landscapes are punctuated by small farms breeding Icelandic horses, always ready to greet the tourists passing by. And speaking of lunar landscapes, the black gravel expanse of the Sólheimasandur site is also an amazing place. It was actually the emergency landing place of an American DC-3 in 1973. Its cabin still lies there, just a few steps from the ocean. Then, a few kilometers away, the small town of Vik owes its fame to its long black sand beaches. One trip is not enough to discover Iceland, but then how much would it take?
