East Iceland in sunshine and with mother of pearl clouds

Mother of pearl clouds or polar stratospheric clouds are a rare and beautiful phenomena. 03.02.2018

Best Travel is on the first circle around Iceland in 2018 and got a fantastic day in East Iceland today.

All vehicles are checked by the official authorities and successfully inspected. Continue Reading →
