This view from the harbor of Reykjavik provided the first glimpse of the natural beauty that this country had in store me. Reykjavik and its surrounding region is densely populated. For a country of nearly 329000 inhabitants, two-thirds of this population is concentrated in the capital region of Reykjavik and the rest dotted across the costal regions of the island leaving the central region called the Highlands almost uninhabited.
It was close to midnight at the time when I was watching the sun very slowly just dipping below the horizon, as this fish trawler was making its way back into the harbor. At 64°08' N Reykjavik is slightly below the Arctic Circle, nevertheless during the month of June it never really gets dark in Iceland.
