How to conclude a merry circumnavigation around Iceland by car? By BBQ’ing on a private beach together with our friends from Nordic Luxury. Somewhere on an empty beach made out of huge, perfectly shaped grey pebble stones, Karl Olafsson drives his Land Rover carefully almost to the soothing edge of the ocean. In the trunk are Icelandic treats (from local sea salt to Icelandic chocolate, courtesy of Marina Safonova, the partner in crime of Karl Olafsson) and some picnic gear. A true Viking is always prepared we notice. While sitting around a bon fire and grilling Icelandic lamb chops we talk and think back of this whirlwind of sensations, views and experiences we had during this short but intense journey.

From fire works over a glacier lagoon to seeing vaguely some northern lights, from misty fjords in the east to bright, sunny days in the north. We drove through Arctic deserts and green and fertile valleys with the Icelandic ice cap looming in the distance. “Can we say cheers and skoll to all this and even more magical things this island has to offer?” we ask ourselves. Of course we can but only if we already secretly start making plans to come back soon. But up next is Greenland and then Kamchatka in Russia. We keep our focus firmly on the north side of the world.
