Reykjavík might not be famous for its autumn colours, but for a city so close to the Arctic circle we’ve got a surprising abundance of trees and vegetation here – certainly enough to impress and inspire those partial to the season of the maturing sun. With the autumn marking both the start of the cultural year and the return of the northern lights, it’s also a fabulous time to visit.
There’s usually a touch of frost in the air come this time of year, but it’s been surprisingly warm and although the autumn colours have now appeared in all those glorious shades there’s still a fair bit of summer green around and plenty of flowers still in bloom, especially in the city’s botanic gardens. Last week, before the wind set in, we had some absolutely gorgeous weather making those colours really stand out showing the dramatic seasonal transformation in progress. Here are a few pics from some of our recent autumn outings. Click to enlarge!
