Vous voyez à quoi ça ressemble la carte de l'Islande ? Au nord-ouest, il y a une petite excroissance, une péninsule appelée Hornstrandir qui n'est accessible qu'en bateau et qui héberge un parc naturel depuis 40 ans. L'endroit est connu pour la diversité de sa faune et de sa flore et constitue, de fait, une sorte de paradis des randonneurs : c'est vert, c'est escarpé et c'est plein de bon air. Même en regardant les photos, on a l'impression de mieux respirer.
Sometimes places and experiences exceed expectations so much that only photos help remind us that, "yes, that happened and it really was that incredible." A huge thanks to @chrisburkard for organizing the greatest adventure I've experienced, to my fellow adventurers for sharing your aspirations and to the crew of @auroraarktika for providing the manpower and equipment to make it happen.
Do you want to know the best part about finally seeing this place? It looked exactly how I'd dreamed it would. Every so often I get to check a place off my bucket list that has either been too remote or complex to access.. This week was on of those times that careful planning a lot of luck came together & it's hard to describe the extent of joy I felt during this hike. Wild places do exist!
One of the coolest hikes we've ever done, even though we couldn't see much! An arctic fox followed along for most of the way. #travelstoke #traveldeeper #travel #forbestravelguide #bbctravel #travelblogger #travelphotography #vsco #photography #instatravel #livetravelchannel #gopro #iceland #huffpostgram #offthebeatenpath #nature #desolate #lonelyplanet #hike #hiking #wanderlust #fog #cliff #Hornstrandir #Westfjords
For 6+ hours the sun just lingered by the horizon.. Barely moving. Sunrise & sunset faded into one another. I'm used to shooting every second of golden light I can get.. But somewhere between midnight and 1:30 AM I just put the camera down. Thank you for this photo of me traversing the hornstrandir cliff.. Easily one of my favorite experiences yet. ? @marksolon
Allez, on prend de bonne chaussures et on y va.
