Akureyri is a small town (less then 20.000 people are living here) but Iceland is sparsely populated so it's the second largest urban area on this fascinating Island.

Colorful houses, green hills, blue water of the ocean and snow-covered mountains: beautiful Akureyri in summer.

Did you know that there is a place where it's Christmas the whole year long? It's called Jólagarðurinn (Christmas Garden), only 10 Minutes driving distance from Akureyri. They have a warm and cozy shop with Christmas songs and a burning fireplace. And they have a place for the Huldufólk, the hidden people. This cute red houses are for the elves that live in Iceland. Only for three families but there are more elf houses in the country. And the have a little mailbox in case somebody writes them a letter.

This is the shop where you can get all sorts of Christmas decoration:

But enough of towns and Christmas in summer - let's explore some nature, shall we?

Godafoss waterfall in Iceland Panorama FormatGodafossPanorama photo

The impressive waterfall above is Goðafoss (Waterfall of the gods). I stitched together several high resolution photos captured with my Nikon D800 for this panorama. The detail quality is amazing, even for very large prints.

Do you love to take a long walk? There are some great places to do that in Iceland, one of them is the Jökulsárgljúfur National Park, this panorama photo shows the amazing Asbyrgi canyon, a dream landscape in green, gray and brown:

Yes, Iceland in summer can be very green. And orange, yellow, brown and gray:

Bubbling mud pot in the amazing geothermal area Hverir. Smells like rotten eggs but as a photographer I love to spend hours here, capturing the mudpots, fumaroles, the soil full of sulphur, the whole wonderful colored landscape. I just love this place!
