We uncovered a land of secrets as we journeyed across volcanic terrain in a Discovery, through some of the most beautiful yet challenging nature on the planet.
Our adventure started in Reykjavik, the tiny but vibrant capital. Behind the wheel of the assured and comfortable Land Rover Discovery we were soon out in the vast barren snowbound wilderness.
We followed the famous Route 1, Iceland’s main, and in some areas only road. Heading south on our way to the black sands of Vik, we passed waterfalls and ravines that defy imagination. But we were focused on the challenge ahead; shifting, wet sand that would test both vehicle and driver.
As we journeyed towards the Langjokull glacier the windscreen of the Discovery seemed like a picture gallery showing us the planet’s most dramatic sights, from a 30 metre geyser to waterfalls so powerful they produced not one but two rainbows.
Iceland. An adventure like no other that revealed the power and majesty of the elements.
