Sailing Expedition in the Svalbard Archipelago - Part 1
From 64° North to 80° North. An experience I will never forget. In the Summer of 2019, I finally managed to cross Svalbard off my bucket list. It has always been one of my top 5 destinations to visit. To fully experience the unique and desolate environment of Svalbard, I slow-travelled on a sailboat during this 12-day expedition. In this 2-part series, I will be detailing my adventure in the High Arctic.

Geothermal Gems
I recently spent some time documenting and exploring a few geothermal areas from an aerial perspective using a drone. This top-down perspective provides a unique look at the colourful world of Iceland's hot & festering earth. It can sometimes seem like the surface of a different planet.

How to photograph the Northern Lights
A lot of people travelling to Iceland, have asked me how to photograph the Northern Lights before. The aurora season has just started last week, so I thought it was definitely a good time to write this journal entry. When you get to see the Northern Lights, it would be a shame if you’d have to waste time on figuring things out with your camera.

Exploring the Icelandic Highlands
Some time ago I planned a trip into the Southern Icelandic Highlands. The plan for the weekend was to explore the areas around Kjölur a bit (one of the F-roads crossing Iceland through the highlands) and afterwards drive around Fjallabak all the way to Eldgjá canyon and back. Ambitious plan but perfectly doable (if you're up for driving some kilometres).

Spending a weekend in East Iceland
A few months ago I travelled to East Iceland for the weekend. Because the drive to Egilsstaðir (and back) is too long for a weekend trip, I took a domestic flight with Air Iceland. After arriving I rented a car to be a bit more mobile in the area. My main mission during the weekend: photographing puffins up close in Borgarfjörður Eystri. As you can tell by the photos, my mission was successful but it wasn't the only thing I did during the weekend.
