Iceland is known as the “Island of the ice and fire, where nature rule over men and set the rhythm of life for his people."
The island is not only Ring Road, Reykjavik, Blue Lagoon or Golden Circle, but also a lot more.
Do not expect a lot of sun, not even in August but, to me, Iceland reveal the best of itself with a dark sky and rain clouds. Don't be surprised if the weather will completely change in just a few minutes, this is typical in the north European countries.
Going around you will easily understand that it is a continuous evolving land where the beautiful landscapes can easily change shape and appearance due to, for example, a volcanic eruption like the famous one that occurred in 2011. Here, the nature always wins.
With a 4x4 you can leave the ring road and, driving along a few unpaved roads, you can reach isolated and completely out of time places. There, walking under the rain in a windy and foggy day, a lunar landscape or a wild land will leave can suddenly appear in front of you.
In Iceland it's nice to get lost and then find yourself in peace and harmony with nature.
