Beyond the black sand beaches of VIK the road suddenly turns silent. A real sense of remoteness starts to dawn on those willing to go beyond the beaten path of the golden circle.
The wind sweeps sand and ash across the vast lands in a visual treat that reminds you of its power to shape it.
White landscapes turn into brown speckled blankets as the winter spell starts to lift its grip.
The ice creaks and water droplets echo as the glaciers continue their ever flowing, yet invisible journey towards the sea.
Water pools around frozen icebergs and dozens of seals gather for one of nature's great spectacles: the returning of life after that long and harsh winter.
