Geysir Hot Springs
To make your trips in Iceland unforgettable, a visit to the Geysir Hot Springs is a must. The hot springs are located in the Haukadalur Valley and are home to several geysers, including the famous Strokkur geyser. Be sure to bring your camera, as you’ll want to capture the moment when the geysers erupt. If you’re lucky, you might see an eruption of Seltún Fissure – it happens quite often during the summer months. If not, don’t worry – there’s still plenty to see. There are also other places nearby that might be worth exploring while in the area such as Gullfoss Waterfall and Thingvellir National Park.
Gullfoss is one of Iceland’s most iconic waterfalls, and for good reason. Located in the Golden Circle, this two-tiered waterfall is truly a sight to behold. Visitors can walk right up to the edge of the falls and feel the mist on their face. It’s an unforgettable experience. I went at sunset and got some incredible photos. If you have time, make sure to spend the day exploring some of the other attractions in the area.
The Blue Lagoon is one of Iceland’s most popular tourist destinations. The lagoon is situated in a lava field and gets its vibrant blue color from the minerals in the water. The lagoon is also said to have therapeutic properties, and many visitors come here to relax and rejuvenate. If you’re planning a trip to the Blue Lagoon, be sure to book your tickets in advance as it can get quite crowded.
Thingvellir National Park
As one of the most popular tourist destinations in Iceland, Thingvellir National Park is a must-see. The park is home to the Althing, the world’s oldest parliament, as well as stunning landscapes. Visitors can hike, bike, or take a scenic drive through the park. Thingvellir is also a great place to stargaze or aurora hunt at night. Visitors should be sure to dress appropriately and keep an eye on the weather before venturing out into this natural wonderland.
Mount Hekla Volcano
Mount Hekla is one of Iceland’s most popular tourist destinations. The volcano last erupted in 2000, and since then, it has been a popular spot for hiking and camping. There are several trails that lead to the top of the volcano, and the views from the summit are incredible. If you’re looking for an adventure, Mount Hekla is the perfect place to explore. It can be a challenge to hike all the way up the mountain because it’s quite steep, but there are different routes that allow visitors of all abilities to make their way up.
