We have a lot of fun documenting Icelandic street life, culture and travel on our Instagram account, whether it’s a violent snowstorm, a particularly luminous sunset, an explosive concert, or a hidden spot far out in the countryside. It’s always interesting to find out what people respond to most, too (spoiler: it’s usually cats, mountains and Hallgrímskirkja.) With that in mind, here are our ten most-liked images of 2017.
