Happy New Year everyone! 🌟 The most festive month of the year always passes by so fast, and this one was no exception at all. With very busy work days, a weekend getaway and the long-awaited end-of-year holidays from work, I feel like I was writing my November review yesterday!
Nature in Iceland is nothing short of breath-taking, and waterfalls are not an exception to this. According to some estimations, there are more than 10 000 of them in Iceland alone, but only a few hundreds have a name – which is already a lot. You’ll notice that their name usually ends with -foss… and that’s because it simply means “waterfall” in Icelandic!
It is not by mistake that Iceland is sometimes called the Land of Fire and Ice: with both volcanoes and glaciers, it truly is a land of contrasts. For this reason, winter in Iceland has a lot to offer, with breath-taking snow-covered landscapes and stunning glaciers. But it is also necessary to take some precautions as winter there is really no joke, and the power of nature is truly humbling.
