Four Places Unchanged By Time

July 4, 2012

Hornstrandir, Iceland


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.
