When arriving 2 pm in the Queulat NP National Park, the entrance was for free as it was only possible to go on the small hike to the Mirador Panoramico. From there it is already possible to get a nice view on the Glacier.…

Iceland: Westfjords, still a hidden gem

In the Westfjords we drove around for four days in order to drive into every fjord. For me the Westfjords are not that much different from the Eastfjords, they are just more remote and have more graveled road, and they are less crowded because they are still a hidden gem in Iceland. The highlight for me was the bird cliff Látrabjarg, the F road 66 and the Bolafjall. Besides that we…

We visited the Vatnajökull National Park a couple of times. Even that the side is popular because of the easy access, as the park is big and for that reason it is not that crowded in certain places. For me the best hike in the Park was still the hike to the Skaftafell glacier, which took us over six hours. We started from the parking lot over the Hundafoss and Svartifoss…
