Rumble / Natural PhenomenaIf there is one thing that we can all agree on, it’s that there is nothing about Iceland that looks even remotely ugly. We’ve said it, every way you turn, you are bombarded with the most incredible natural sights you’ll ever see.

The funniest thing is that the territory of Iceland can’t really boast with having forests filled with all sorts of animals and plants. On the contrary, Iceland has been trying so hard to repopulate the vegetation on the land, but to no avail. It it believed that at one point in history the people inhabiting the land, mostly consisting of Vikings, cut down so many percents of the trees, that it is almost impossible to return the forest to its former glory. Paired together with the volcanic ash that is in abundance in Iceland, the land is made almost completely barren.

But even though we don’t see that many trees in the Icelandic landscapes, it is still undeniably beautiful. There is something to be said about the mossy plains and volcanic rock terrains paired with the breathtaking sunsets, and the geothermal activity of the island makes it look all the more mysterious. Check out these stunning sights of Iceland from a different perspective, as the team from OZZO Photography flies over Reykjanes peninsula in the south west corner of the country! Places visited: Gunnuhver, Reykjanesviti, Blue Lagoon, Geysir, Gullfoss, Skogarfoss. What do you think? Is Iceland on your bucket list yet?
