Photoblog: Waterfalls, Glaciers and Valleys of Southwest Iceland

Posted on September 27, 2011 by

Intense, dramatic and colossal: the Southwestern coastline of Iceland is treacherous yet mystical. Dotted with towering volcanic mountains, bluish-white glaciers and hundreds of waterfalls, this part of the country is strikingly beautiful and packed with an endless list of natural attractions. While driving through the coast from Reykjavik, we stumbled upon one waterfall and valley after another – and each manages to top the other. To share with you the sheer beauty of this area, here are some photos snapped in various corners of Southwest Iceland over the past week.
