Iceland, a country rich with roaring volcanoes, monolithic glaciers, icy mountains and incomparable landscapes, has become a photographer’s dream, says Peter Rolf Hammer who captured these amazing photos on a five-week journey across the country. Iceland’s relatively small population  also means that the majority of its natural wonder remains nearly or completely untouched, giving photographers the opportunity to capture a world that seems pristine and almost alien in nature.

Take a virtual journey through Peter’s lens to wild and stunning Iceland!
