Merry Christmas! May your day be filled with love, kindness and happiness. And may the eggnog be during like the water of this waterfall.

✦ Haifoss, Iceland
Visiting Iceland during the rainiest summer in decades definitely also had it´s advantages. After driving on a pretty rocky path for a bit we decided to give our small rental car a break and hike the last few kilometers to this amazingly beautiful spot. The water plunging down the cliff into the deep gorge and the contrast between black volcanic rock and bright green moss created one dramatic scenery. Considering the fact that we were – once again – almost completely alone made Haifoss one of our most favourite spots in Iceland.

✦ Seljavallalaug, Iceland
A dip in a natural hot thermal pool is the perfect authentic treat after some days of wild camping and hiking in rainy Iceland. Seljavallalaug is a really nice spot located just a short walk from a parking lot and offers a rustic spa experience with great views of the surrounding mountains. After relaxing in this giant steaming bathtub, breathing the fresh air and enjoying the beautiful scenery of small creeks running down misty hills, which are covered by lush, green moss we couldn´t have asked for more.

✦ Kerlingarfjöll, Iceland
We could have spent hours wandering around the surreal red mountains between steaming geysirs and bubbling mud pools in the majestic geothermal valley of Kerlingarfjöll, but an upcoming storm and a two hours hike back to the mountain hut made us leave earlier. Before that day we´ve never eperienced the extreme change of alpine weather. Within a few minutes after that pic was taken it startet pouring, the trail became a mudslide and heavy fog didn´t make the trek any easier as we sometimes couldn´t see further than ten meters. Walking almost blindly not seeing where the snow ended, the fog started or where we were going was extremely scary. Thanks to the GPS on our phone we got through this adventure, which was followed by the coldest night we´ve ever spent in a tent – outdoor activities in the highlands of Iceland are definitely not for the faint hearted.
