Land of Endless Beauty
As you travel with your guide through this ever-changing landscape all that you thought you knew about Iceland disappears as its wonders begin to unfold before your eyes. Everything is bigger than you imagined, the noise of the waterfalls louder, the daylight brighter and the contrast of colour unimaginable. It's like floating through a dream as you try to slow down all the emotions of what your experiencing. As you pass through each region the beauty continues to unfold and when you thought it could not get any better you turn a corner and there before you stands another incredible view.
