Tramping Near the Arctic Circle

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Barry Holzman

On a day visit to an abandoned village near the Arctic Circle on the Hornstrandir Peninsula in Iceland, the sky cleared as we arrived and these hikers begin their exploration. We were treated to coffee and cakes in former doctor's home, now used as a summer house. Access to this wilderness area is by boat only.

Location: Hesteyri, Iceland
