simonasher And then we made it to Reykjavik for our last two days in Iceland. All of its colors, sweaters, and oddities will stay with us forever. #welcometoísland 2d

simonasher It was dark out there, which made it really easy to see the stars. You can see hints on the northern lights too. #welcometoísland 6d

simonasher Snæfellsjökull. The pure white tip of the Snæfellsness Peninsula. The entrance to the center of the earth. It being at the end of the peninsula, we drove through lava rock fields on all sides of this volcanic glacier snapping photos from every angle. Truly beautiful. #welcometoísland 6d

simonasher The same night we spotted the first patch of northern lights in the sky, we also managed to see this one as well. The green on the right was the brightest piece we saw but everything else was still a little faded. But with a little Sigur Rós playing in the background and cuddled up with my wife, it was pretty magical nonetheless. #welcometoísland #iceland #mystopover #hillsidecottageinthewest #natgeolandscape @icelandair 1w

simonasher The hair of Icelandic horses is just far more superior and hipster than that of any American horse. #thatsallthereistoit #welcometoísland 1w

simonasher Arnarstapi. Amongst the vast lava fields at the end of Snæfellsness, there is a house in this tiny fishing village. Everywhere like this in Iceland is so quiet. Maybe you see two or three people, but it's crazy that you can see this much beauty so untouched or crowded with people. #welcometoísland 1w

simonasher Looking north, Kirkjufellsfoss in all its beauty. This day we drove the Snæfellsness Peninsula and this was one our first stops. This was definitely a contender for best day in Iceland. #welcometoísland 2w

simonasher Kirkjufellsfoss. Off in the distance, you can see the tiny waterfall, but up close and looking backwards is one of the most photographed scenes in Iceland. Apparently this is also the setting of Jules Verne's "Journey to the Center of the Earth" which is awesome! Wish we would have known that when we were standing there. Haha the reverse photo coming soon! #welcometoísland 2w

simonasher The northern lights of western Iceland. Although faint when we saw them, we were able get some photos like this with a 5-10 second timelapse. It was pretty fun running around our house looking out each window trying to see if we spotted anything in the sky. We would see little blips of light every once and a while and then a cloud would move and something like this would show up. It was truly incredible. #welcometoísland 2w

simonasher Our view from Kolsstaðir. Words cannot describe beautiful this perfect mountain was. The light was always changing and the mountain looked completely different every 30 minutes. It was magical. Can't wait to share what the northern lights looked like from this house!! Ahhh!!! #welcometoísland 2w

simonasher I had to skip forward a few days to post this photo of Shifra. She's beautiful in so many ways and she is constantly keeping me focused. I'm just still overwhelmed that we got to share this incredible journey together. Love you babe.
This was taken at our @airbnb near the Snæfelsness Peninsula. It was the most amazing experience. The house, the views, the music, the northern lights, it was just unbelievable. Can't wait to share more! #welcometoísland

simonasher Vík. The southernmost village in Iceland. We loved this place so much, we abandoned our airbnb that we planned to got back to to stay here for a night. Luckily we found a room at the @icelandair hotel and got back on the road in the morning. This was about a 20 minute drive from Dyrhólaey. #welcometoísland 3w

simonasher Happy Easter! This is Dyrhólaey. We drove to the top of a cliff for this one. That tiny speck in the middle of the cliff out there is a person running to the end! This was one of the most breathtaking places on our trip.

More images of Dyrhólaey to come! #welcometoísland

simonasher Another shot of Seljalandfoss 🚿 Spoiler alert: There's actually 8 people in this photo. Also, I can't wait to post more mountain photos! I'll be uploading high res uncropped versions of these photos on my website and eventually on Exposure as well. Link in my profile if you're interested. :) 3w

simonasher On our drive down the southern coast of Iceland, we saw a tiny waterfall off in the distance. As we got closer we recognized it was Seljalandfoss, one of Iceland's many "foss's." This southern stretch of road contained a lot of what we had planned to see in Iceland, from waterfalls, to hot springs, and just iconic views of Iceland like this one. #welcometoísland 3w
