Iceland

I did a trade with a person from Iceland a long, long time ago, and I got these five cards in return.

This postcard is showing the 40 meter high Seljalandsfoss waterfall.  It’s one of the most famous waterfalls in Iceland, and apparently it’s possible to go behind the waterfall which is probably a cool thing to do, and a cool way to see it. And no, I cannot pronounce it’s name. ;)

The Aurora Borealis over the glacier lagoon (original name is “Jökulsárlón”). It’s the largest glacier lagoon on Iceland, and it’s located on Iceland’s south-east. The lagoon now stands 1.5 kilometres (0.93 mi) away from the ocean’s edge and covers an area of about 18 km2 (6.9 sq mi). It is the second deepest lake in Iceland at over 200 metres (660 ft) depth. The size of the lagoon has increased fourfold since the 1970s. It is considered as one of the natural wonders of Iceland.

Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland. Reykjavík is believed to be the location of the first permanent settlement in Iceland, around year 870. HERE is  a link to the cool panorama photo of the city.

The Goðafoss is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in Iceland. It is located in the Mývatn district of North-Central Iceland at the beginning of the Sprengisandur highland road. The water of the river Skjálfandafljót falls from a height of 12 meters over a width of 30 meters. It’s name comes from the heathen gods worshipped before Iceland adopted Christianity.
