Iceland Highlands Kjölur

    Kerlingarfjöll looks absolutely stunning. Hoping to head to Iceland next year but I can’t drive! We’ll have to find alternative routes. Who knows, maybe we’ll be driving then? 😉 Can’t wait to see all these beautiful places!

    I visited Iceland in March and loved it so much I am going back in August! I am doing a self guided movie tour of the island this time with my son. Hveravellir looks such an interesting area, I have it on my list for next time

    This is quite an in-depth guide for traveling within Iceland’s highlands. Great tip about getting a 4×4 powerful car. Great shots, really cool to see all the geo-thermal activity. Can’t wait to visit Iceland at some point soon!!

    Amazing!! Looks so unreal, like it’s from another planet not from Earth. I hope I can visit Iceland soon!

    This route sounds awesome! I bet it must look magical in winter, covered in snow (especially those cute red and green huts!). I would love to try the hot thermal baths. Do they smell like sulphur?

    Hi Hugo and Cristina,

    Have not set up a trip yet but goodness am I excited to enjoy this part of the world. The endless beauty leaves me speechless every time I see an Iceland themed post. Time to stop flying over the place so I actually drop in and enjoy this gem between the US and Europe. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    We love road trips and these landscapes have already left me craving for a drive. Stunning is the perfect word for these awesome amaing landscapes. Iceland was already on our list but now adding kjolur specifically. Amazing pictures. Loved it.

    I could read this post over and over again. The pictures are just so beautiful! Loved them! Makes me want to travel to Iceland! I have heard so much about the country’s picturesque landscapes. From glaciers to mointains to volcanoes to caves.

    Amazing guys! Iceland looks so unique, it has landscapes that can’t be found anywhere else in the world – I was lucky enough to experience geothermal activity too in New Zealand and found it absolutely fascinating. It was so mesmerising seeing the way the steam rose off the rocks like clouds.

    Several years ago my husband and I flew to Iceland rented a car and drove around the entire country. We have been halfway around the world and seen wonderful sights, but the places,and wonderful waterfalls took our breath away.We want to go back soon.I could really live there forever. Save us a place to stay!!!
