Only accessible for a few months a year, this beautiful travel and photo-location guidebook covers Iceland’s enigmatic highlands, one of the most desolate yet beautiful locations on Earth.
The interaction of wind, water and fire has sculpted a unique upland environment defined by inhospitable landscapes, extreme weather and rugged topography. A place of beauty, mystery and drama, much of the region’s photographic appeal lies in this epitome of the Icelandic archetype, with no permanent habitation, a preference for unmetalled roads and very little infrastructure.
A trip to this area of genuine wilderness therefore requires careful consideration and planning to ensure a safe and productive visit. The long and often difficult driving approaches make many of the locations in the highlands unsuitable for hit and run tourism.
