From 91 Days in Iceland
The tiny country of Iceland was our home for 91 very big days. For three unforgettable summer months, we explored some of the world’s most unique nature.

Reykjavík was our base, but we spent time in every corner of this island nation, and experienced as much as 91 days would allow.

The Ruins of Selatangar
Since the days of the settlement, Iceland has been a land of fishermen. Rough characters hewn from Viking stock, daily braving the deadly waters of the North Atlantic without a second thought. But I imagine that even the fiercest among them felt a shiver when coming ashore at Selatangar….
