Crossing A Polar Circle. Spitzbergen

In fact, we had very little time to see the town of 

Akureyri

 which turned out to be pleasant, but quite a common one. Here’s a central street.

ship 

left the final port in Iceland, and we admired the magnificent panorama of the cozy town. I really liked Iceland, and I will come back here for sure to ascend the volcanoes, to swim in the springs, to cycle along the picturesque hills and valleys!

illuminated by golden sunlight.
