Swan Lake by Alex37 Swan Lake by Alex37
Please come join me on Facebook where you can stay up-to-date with my photography and travels: [link]
Aftavatn, Swan Lake in English, is one of the most beautiful locations I have had the pleasure of visiting. This is the 3rd stop on the Laugavegur hike through the southern highlands of Iceland. You camp close to the edge of the lake in surroundings that are at one moment tranquil and the next unforgiving. Fortunately during my stay in the area I had nothing but perfect weather. This image was taken around 11pm and capped off one of my best days of photography and hiking.

There are now three things I want to do in Iceland.

Have fun in a local bar with the locals
Go rallying in the glorious countryside
Visit this location.

Wales is glorious, but this picture? I have to see it in person and know nature at its pure glory.

Busses leave from Rekyjavik to Alftavatn almost every day in the summer and its only a short hike up Bratthals. However the best way to do it is to do the full Laugavegur over 4 days. I loved it so much I did it twice.
