Iceland in Pictures

Oh Iceland. The land of Fire and Ice. An outdoor paradise. You have won my heart. Working day jobs and then working on this site in the evening has put a lot of stress on the Outdoor Society team. So to celebrate the site’s new design being live for almost a year, we decided to disconnect and get away.

I cannot put into words how beautiful and unique this country is. So instead of trying to, I will let the pictures do all of the talking. Enjoy!
