Hornstrandir, Iceland

places-unchanged-by-time-hornstrandir6

Located in Iceland, this majestic landscape has been uninhabited by humans for 60 years due to its remoteness and harsh climate. As such, it remains a virtually untouched land that has been protected as a nature reserve since 1975. Though humans may not reside here, there is an abundance of flora and fauna and arctic foxes, birds and seals, as well as a few old houses. The area can only be reached by foot or by boat and tourist day trips are common.
