18 Cool Pictures of Icelandic Turf Houses

Iceland is one of the best locations for landscape photography, and it seems like there’s no limit to the great pictures coming out of the country. It has beautiful waterfalls, majestic horses, and a vibrant capital city, but its traditional architecture is interesting too. Old Icelandic buildings are covered with grass and blend into their surroundings, like ‘real’ hobbit homes.
