Life Above the Arctic Circle

This was my favorite part of my trip to Iceland. I took a bus from Akureyri to Dalvik and then the three hour ferry ride to this small island of 85 people. The Arctic Circle runs through it and that was the first time I ever crossed it. I hiked through most of the island. It was beautiful but mostly I loved the complete peace I got here.
