IcelandΒ is a Nordic island country between the North Atlantic and Arctic Oceans, on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge between North America and Europe.

One of the three attractions that make upΒ the Golden Circle, Iceland’s best-known travel itinerary
(along side Gullfoss and Geysir covered below).Β 

In a nation famed for its waterfalls, Gullfoss is perhaps the most impressive. Here the torrents of the HvΓ­tΓ‘ river thunder through a tight canyon and tumble down two distinct cascades. The roar of the waters is astonishing.

The Great Geysir itselfβ€”once a very active geyserβ€”is dormant. But its neighbor, Strokkur, will keep you more than entertained. Erupting every six to 10 minutes, it’s a brilliant display.

The Blue Lagoon is Iceland’s most famous spa, famed for the color and therapeutic benefits of its waters. If you’ve had a busy schedule of sightseeing, there’s nothing better than to dip into its warm waters and relax.

There’s no doubt that the northern lights are one of the most magical sights you can see anywhere on the planet. Visitors rightly flock to Iceland to catch a glimpse of these dancing colors that illuminate the night sky during winter.

Β Reykjavik’s harbourβ€”the beating ancient heart of the cityβ€”can be a good place. Along the city’s scenic and historic waterfront, you’ll find sights including Harpa, one of the city’s most important buildings and cultural hubs.

The waters that you’ll see at Seljalandsfoss come straight from the EyjafjallajΓΆkull glacier, which melts to form the Seljalands river.

JΓΆkulsΓ‘rlΓ³n is a glacial lagoon, created by the melting ice of VatnajΓΆkull, Iceland’s largest glacier. Now the deepest lake in Iceland

Skaftafell used to be a national park of its own, but these days it has been incorporated within the larger VatnajΓΆkull National Park.

One of the main draws here is the glacier that gives the park its name. VatnajΓΆkull, Europe’s second-largest ice cap, covers 8% of Iceland and is up to a kilometer thick in places.
