First Light in Langanes

The back of beyond.

Shaped like a goose head, the Langanes peninsula in northeast Iceland truly feels like the edge of the world. A rough dirt route skirts its northern periphery all the way to its tip to the lighthouse Fontur. An astonishing array of bird life is found here in the summer, including one of the world’s largest gannet colonies. The sun does not fully dip below the horizon at this latitude during the days around the summer solstice.
