It was pushing midnight but the eternal summer sunshine meant one could still see the beautiful Icelandic countryside as we made our way to Reykjavík. In the morning we would take off on our own “Golden Circle” tour of Iceland, opting not to follow in the footsteps of the many other tourists that are increasingly flocking to this beautiful land. Our itinerary would take our rented Suburu Outback around the entire country as we followed the coastline to take in as much as two weeks would allow us. Highlights we were hoping to experience were of course the glaciers, puffins, waterfalls, and untouched landscapes. For me personally though it was the Symbol of Iceland which I hoped to get a glimpse of, the regal Gyrfalcon.
