It is always interesting for Icelanders to see how visitors traveling in Iceland organize their trip and gear. Icelanders didn’t start to travel around the country in any numbers during their summer vacations, until the forties and fifties, in the 20th century. From that time up to the eighties and nineties, they used tents for shelter and sleeping. Today most of us rely on something much heavier and bulky like caravans or trailers for our little private home away from home. As we can see from this photo visitors have found a various solution to shelter against the very unpredictable Icelandic weather. But most of the time they just enjoy the incredible scenery in the late night sun in a light breeze, like the visitors in this photo in Vatnsfjörður.
