***  ICELAND and FAROES 2017  ***

We have bitter-sweet memories of our long and satisfyingly arduous summer in Iceland, a place of 2 extremes: at the highest level, the spectacular volcanic terrain, and unprecedented bird-life and wild flora, was some of the most majestic ever experienced; at the lowest extreme however, this small country is now so utterly and severely ravaged by the mass tourism industry. The overall result is that, with the deepest regret, we are compelled to urge that serious and responsible travellers avoid Iceland completely, and allow the island space and time to recover from this assault by mass tourism before the damage becomes irretrievable.

Having said that, we now present our travelogues detailing our memorable experiences during our 5 months of travels around Iceland. Time pressures have however meant that for now, the series remains incomplete; we shall add the outstanding editions during autumn 2018.
