The land of ice and fire might sound like a cheap metaphor but it’s a rather accurate description. This is a place where the soil boils and thick glaciers work as a lid to mighty volcanoes. Created along a fissure between two tectonic plates, shaped by ice and constantly expanding, it’s a rare place where men seem to take a humble role amongst the other brave animals they share this land with, where Nature is in charge.
Our trip in Iceland lasted 14 days, and we drove nearly 4.000km on a very old Suzuki Jimny.
