On the road in his adopted country. Our journey to the dreamy West Iceland takes us to the rough south of Iceland.

Iceland with its rich fauna and flora is an often underestimated island state. Especially the climate is characterized in many places as rough, rainy and dark. Iceland captivates with colours, light and brilliant vegetation. While the summer months are light-flooded and cooler, the winter often counts only five hours of daylight with mild temperatures. The saying "If you don't like the weather, wait five minutes" should therefore be believed, because variation is as much a feature of Iceland's climate as change.

On the face of the Atlantic Ocean

Back from the origin to the rough coast of the south. We from GREY continue our journey through Iceland and move south along narrow coasts. Along the wild Atlantic Ocean, the landscape is criss-crossed by green lava fields, moss-covered rocks, thermal regions, glacial lagoons and impressive waterfalls. Great natural wonders in a small area, which amaze and show the power and beauty that characterises nature. What natural spectacles the south has to offer? See for yourself:

  • Krýsuvík, geothermal area- Krýsuvík is an active volcanic system south of the Reykjanes peninsula. As a geothermal area or high temperature area, the temperature at a depth of one kilometre is over 150 °C. On site you can find bubbling mud pots, fumaroles - volcanic vapour outlets - and smaller volcanic lakes.
  • Skógafoss Waterfall - the 25 meter wide and 60 meter high waterfall is one of the largest and most elegant water spectacles in Iceland. The scenery is so breathtaking that it has already been staged in films like Thor "The Dark World" and "The Amazing Life of Walter Mitty". On sunny days, two rainbows can often be seen due to the enormous spray.
  • Jökulsárlón Glacial Lagoon - Iceland's largest and most famous glacial lake is 284 metres deep and a popular travel destination for photographers and outdoor enthusiasts, mainly because of the drifting icebergs, which are up to 15 metres high. In the summer months of June and July the region offers nesting places for large predatory gulls and seals.

  • Fjaðrárgljúfur Canyon - in the southeast of the island is the spectacular two-kilometer long Fjaðrárgljúfur Canyon. Covered by moss and lush green, pure magic can be felt. The river Fjadrá flows through and reaches depths of up to 100 metres. A popular spot for hiking.
  • Vík í Mýrdal- at the southernmost tip of Iceland there is a magical and mysterious place with 300 inhabitants. Vik i Myrdal is dangerously close to the active volcano Katla, which becomes active every 40 to 80 years. The last eruption was in 1918 and the town is famous for one of the most spectacular beaches in the world - a black pebble beach with basalt columns and the Reynisdrangar rock formations off the coast. The cliffs are often home to puffins and other sea birds.

The wanderlust is calling? With this naturalness and such beauty it is no wonder. Our journey through Iceland's south is now coming to an end. But for GREY this does not mean goodbye, because we are rooted in Iceland. Order a piece of Iceland home now and pamper your skin with the power of 1,000 litres of sea water.
