It's obvious that Nicolas is an Icelandophile, having visited many times and explored many different areas of the country. This time around, Nicolas joined us for the Mountaineering Skills Course where he picked up knowledge and experience from our in-house experienced mountaineers. In the coming days, he will begin a solo diagonal trip across Iceland!
Nicolas is doing this for the Icelandic Forestry Association to raise money for reforestation in Iceland!
What motivated you to visit Iceland?
I have always been fascinated by Nordic cultures and landscapes. Thinking about Iceland was for me like traveling to one of these places on the edge of the world, somewhere almost magical and unknown. I had the opportunity to discover Iceland one year ago, close to winter, and ever since, I really wanted to come back.
Iceland is definitely the kind of place where you want to come back. Whatever you have done or seen, you can always discover something new. So, this time around was the time to experience Iceland during spring.
