Last October, we packed our bags for a two-week trip around Iceland.The guys at Lagoon Car Rental met us at the airport and had us in a 4×4 in no time. We then set out for our counter-clockwise trip around the island. The ring road makes for one of the best road trips as there are endless waterfalls and hot springs along the way. Two weeks gave us more than enough time to finish the circuit, allowing us enough time to stop and enjoy all of the scenery. Despite the some of the heaviest rainfall the country has seen in years, our Iceland trip was an amazing experience and we look forward to returning someday.

Here are some of some of my favourite shots from the adventure!

With a clear night in the forecast, Bec and myself set out for the summit of Mt.Sparrowhawk by headlamp. Sparrowhawk is located in the Spray Lakes Valley and is an easy scramble with a 1400m elevation gain. From this 3100m peak you are well above the surrounding mountains which makes for an amazing view of the Spray Lakes Reservoir and Mount Assiniboine in the distance. The mountain is close enough to the prairies that we were able to watch the sun rise over the horizon, as it lit up the peaks and ridges around us. Here’s a few of my favourite photos from the hike.
