Eyjafjallajökull is a volcano that managed to cancel a lot of flights around the world in 2010. The eruptions started on April 10 and went on till the middle of May. Fortunately, nobody died although many people were evacuated and the local farmers had to restore their property.

Jökulsárlón is a glacial lake in the southern part of Iceland. The colour of the icebergs drifting in the water surface is bright blue. This is one of the most beautiful places we have ever seen!
The lake is located near Vatnajökull, which is Europe’s largest glacier. The national park that includes Jökulsárlón is second-largest in Europe after Yugyd Va in Russia. Jökulsárlón keeps growing as a result of global warming.
Ice caves can be found at the edges of glaciers. The cave in the Skaftafell National Park is not an exception. The sunlight squeezes through the ice making the top of the caves light blue and the whole cave amazingly beautiful! At the bottom you will see a stream of melt water.
Svartifoss is our favourite waterfall in Iceland. It looks like an organ, a keyboard instrument, which makes you feel like you are in an ancient church. The rocks around the waterfall remind pipes. You keep thinking that an invisible musician is going to start playing a sonata of Johann Sebastian Bach.
