From the hot to the cold - Iceland

Flying above Greenland
When we started searching for flights from the West Coast of the US back to Switzerland, we found an interesting offer connecting through Keflavik, Iceland's main airport just outside Reykjavik. Even better, the offer came with a free layover of up to seven days. We didn't hesitate for long of course and booked us a nice last destination on our way home.

Already the flight from Portland to Reykjavik was spectacular. As it was early July, the sun didn't set all night and so we could enjoy a beautiful view on the glaciers and fjords of southern Greenland. We landed early in the morning, just an hour earlier than our friends Sylvia and Jessica from Switzerland who joined our weeklong tour of Iceland.
