A bright Arctic Spring - Route 12
12 FULL CIRCLE AROUND ICELAND
Ring Road N.1 with the Trolls Peninsula and Cap Snæfellsnes
This great trip is a wonderful discovery of Iceland out of the tourist season, leaded by a specialist of its nature, its history and legends. A trip where you meet reindeers and migrating birds, hot springs and fresh fish. This is a timeless trip at the four cardinal points and at the four seasons of Iceland.
To travel around Iceland is a trip to the constantly renewed horizon. Through landscapes which follow one another, occupying all spaces and unravelling in a spectacular way, it is held by the single ribbon of one thousand and three hundred kilometers of the circular road n°1. Out of the summer season. The circulation is so rare that the island seems to belong to us, much more so than in the summer season.
WINTER / NORTHERN LIGHTS
Majestic at the end of winter and at the beginning of spring, Iceland, seldom visited at this season, keeps all its mystery. At the end of the night, when the light goes up with promises of rebirth, we like to explore the country and check that the summer will return. The immense little country is for us alone, uncertain weather, hot water, volcanoes covered with snow, the last northern lights, horses that look like “cuddly” toys, reindeers which cross our road as in Lascaux, a stubborn 4x4 vehicle, comfortable lodgings, kitchen recopies, stories, legends…
SPRING / MIGRATING BIRDS
An overflow of life invades the tundra and the meadows, which have tender green colors whereas the tops still remain covered with snow. It is the spectacular return of the migrating birds. From America, Europe and Africa, great flights are coming towards Iceland. They all arrive, wild swans, barnacle gooses, Harlequin ducks, and phalaropes, all ready to start again with enthusiasm the repetition of life. Mating is in full swing and the birds are not afraid, almost unconscious, and don’t show yet their mistrust as they will a few weeks later when they will be breading and raising their youngsters. The ocean that breathes like a lung takes again a strong and subtle odor of freedom and big wideness.
