25 Photos That Make Me Want to Return to Iceland

I first visited Iceland in 2012 and was so blown away by the landscape and culture shaped by nature that I vowed to return.  It didn’t take long, enjoying my second visit in September of this year.  It’s a location that gets under your skin, it’s a location where nature makes the rules, providing unexpected highlights and unplanned adventures.  It’s a location that deserves to be visited again and again and again.

As I reflect on my favourite photos from my most recent trip, I find myself vowing to return – and dreaming of the day it happens!
