As we did every day during our trip to Iceland this January, on our drive back to Selfoss from coastal Vik, my husband and I sought out a perfect place to watch the sun set. We sat at this roadside stop for over an hour watching the sun drop below the horizon, painting the sky all shades of pink and blue in the process.
Just as the sun went down, storm clouds rolled in and darkened the sky's cheerful pinks, transforming the coast into a moody blue scene. That's the best thing about Iceland's epic sunsets - they last for more than an hour in the winter, an ever-changing light show ranging from pastel pinks to dramatic blues.
Iceland's dazzling sunsets are sure to be one of the many special things you'll remember about this magical country long after you've returned home.
