A dream came true for us from August 29th to September 14th, 2015. We visited the southern part of the island and the eastern fjords, in seach of epic hiking trails and grandiose landscapes. Our high expectations were largely met! Some of these pictures were taken with my new acquisition, a DJI Phantom 3 Pro drone, we call "Drony-Babe". I was scared to loose Drony-Babe one time when I flew it over Fjallsárlón. I kept going foreward so I could film and picture the base of the glacier and at one point I realized the drone was 2km away. On the way back, it was facing a strong wind and I wasn't sure I'd be able to make it come back before the battery went dead. If that would have appenned, the drone would have tried to land by itself...on the water.... That was a very good lesson... For those traveling from America to Continental Europe or vice versa, Icelandair offers the great opportunity to stopover in Iceland for a maximum of 7 nights AT NO EXTRA COST. So, wonderful Iceland, expect to see us again !
