A 6 hour winters journey on a bus in Iceland may not sound like much fun but this trip from Akureyri in northern Iceland, down the west coast to the capital of Reykjavik in the southern part of the country provided some amazing and diverse scenery. The bus started in ice and snow, but soon it was passing through areas that had experienced above freezing temperatures and you could actually see grass that would normally be blanketed in snow!
After only seeing white landscapes for the whole time I was travelling about Iceland, this was a unique glimpse of what the country kind of looks like in the summer (minus the green as the grass was a brownish colour). Then before you know it you are back driving through icy roads and snow drifts.
The photos speak for themselves (although as the day went on the bus windows got very dirty and eventually it was impossible to take any photos). Quite the journey (funnily enough I forgot to take a photo of the bus I travelled in)!
