Six days in a 4×4 rental car, a list of “off the beaten path” destinations that I could not pronounce, a camera and map. Here is a photography essay of Iceland from the southern coast of Vik to the northern port of Stykkisholmur. I covered two national parks, The Golden Circle, a secret lagoon, caves, Snaefellsness Peninsula, a rock n troll camp and everything in between.

Fridheimar is a greenhouse that specializes in tomatoes. Since Iceland has such harsh conditions, agriculture is a bit of a challenge. Tomatoes are usually grown in this way in Iceland. They even have bees and have imported certain types of flies to have in their greenhouses. Everyday, they offer a tomato soup buffet with 12 types of fresh baked breads. Cucumber salad, butter, sour cream and at each table, a basil plant to garnish your soup.
