#travel Iceland

Iceland, (Icelandic: Ísland) is a mountainous island nation in the north Atlantic Ocean, located between Europe and North America. Though not part of the continental mainland, the country is considered Nordic European. The name of the country—Iceland—may not be that appropriate: although 10% of Iceland is covered by glaciers, it has a surprisingly mild climate and countless geothermal hot-spots and hot springs. The native spelling ("Ísland") is appropriate in English as well. Tipping isn't done in Iceland and driving off-road is illegal and destroys the nature.

We spent 11 days travelling around Iceland in a modified Land Rover (Super) Defender!  We called him Lancelot and this is somewhat a photo diary of our trip.

Driving towards the central highlands of Iceland, not a soul in sight

One absolute must for us was to rent a Land Rover Superdefender.
An iconic British Legend in it's element.  Plus it's just too cool!  
By law, you must have a 4x4 to be able to drive into the Highlands.  It was late October and close to winter so having sturdy off-road capability would be useful.  Especially for those rivers we needed to cross.
We got him from ice-rovers.is
