Content: Geysir & Strokkur are both fountain type geysers in the Geothermal Area in western Iceland. Geysir, also known as the Great Geysir, was the inspiration for the well-known word geyser that is used for all others across the world. At this moment Geysir itself is dormant. But next to Geysir you find Strokkur, which is more active than Geysir ever was. It usually blows water about 15 to 20 meters into the air every 5 to 10 minutes. It’s a very impressive phenomen to witness at the beginning of your journey around Iceland.

Content: Haifoss is, with its 128 meters, one of the highest waterfalls in Iceland. Next to Haifoss there’s another waterfall called Grannifoss. Both waterfalls are part of a phenomenal landscape and were one of the most impressive waterfalls we’ve seen on our route. You can drive to the top of the waterfall and enjoy the views from above, and if you like to you can hike to the bottom of the waterfalls as well.  Haifoss is located in the highlands and accessible by a gravel road. Luckily this road is not classified as an F-road so you are allowed to drive here with any kind of vehicle. Considering the condition of the road, we were a little surprised that it's not an F-road. We recommend you to drive carefully, adjust your speed and mind the potholes. The advantage of the bad road is that very few people make the effort to get there, which ensures that you can explore this majestic place without crowds.  Note: We heard you can also walk to the waterfalls, starting from an old farm called Stöng. So you don’t have to drive the gravel road but it would take you a very long time to reach the waterfalls

On the right side of Skogafoss there’s a stairway going up to a viewing platform. From here a hiking trail starts that leads through the Fimmvörðuháls mountain pass. 
Just like seljalandsfoss, Skogafoss is located right next to the R1. Together with the fact that it is one of the biggest waterfalls, it means that it can get quite busy at times.

Content: One of the lesser known, but one of our favorite, waterfalls in Iceland is the kvernufoss. This waterfall is located just around the corner of Skogafoss but way less crowded. So no reason not to visit, right? 
To reach this waterfall you have to navigate to the Skógar museum. Here you can park your car and start the short hike to the waterfall. You first have to walk further east, where you have to climb a step to get past the fence. From here you just keep on following the trail over a little hill and then the waterfall will appear at the end of the gorge.  The whole scenery is so stunning, like you’re walking around on the set of The Hobbit. And just like at Seljalandsfoss you can walk behind the waterfall, but prepare yourself again to be splashed by the spray of the waterfall.

As there were so many cars parked in the parking lot, we decided to return there early in the morning the day after. Therefore we first visited Dyrhólaey viewpoint, but this is totally up to you.  Dyrhólaey viewpoint Dyrhólaey is the most southern point of Iceland. It is divided into a lower part and a higher part. At the higher part you find Dyrhólaey lighthouse. When walking around on the cliffs here you can enjoy a fantastic view over the Endless Black Beach, the Dyrhólaey archway and the Reynisdrangar, an impressive rock formation. When looking inland you can see the glaciers Eyjafjallajökull and Mýrdalsjökull. This place is also known for its variety of birds, including the famous puffins (only during summer). During the spring/summer months Dyrhólaey has limited access by car because of nesting season, but it differs every season. The higher part can be closed somewhere between May and June for car traffic, but you can still access by foot during daytime.

Content: (As we mentioned before, you pass Sólheimasandur Plane Wreck before Dyrhólaey viewpoint. But as it can get extremely busy there during daytime, we decided to return early in the morning.) In 1973 a US Navy DC plane ran out of fuel and crashed on the black beach at Solheimasandur. The most popular theory goes that the pilot switched to the wrong fuel tank during a storm, resulting in the crash of the plane. Luckily, everyone in the plane survived the crash.  The apocalyptic scenery of the crashed plane in such an abandoned, moon-like landscape is definitely worth a visit. The contrast between the remains of the man-made plane and the black sand of the beach makes it a spectacular setting. Today, big parts of the aircraft's wings and the tail are gone. Rumours state that a local farmer sold those parts for cash. To get to the plane wreck you have to walk 3,5 kilometers from the provided parking and it will take you around 45 minutes of walking one way. Taking into account the time you spend at the wreck, you should count on at least 2 to 2,5 hours for a visit to this intrigious place.

Content: Fjaðrárgljúfur Canyon is a magical and maybe the most beautiful green canyon in Iceland. It is about 100m deep and 2km long. The canyon might be some 2 million years old and was formed by a forceful glacial river. Now the small Fjaðrá river runs like a snake between the steep walls of the canyon. Most of the ledges are fenced off and there’s a view platform by the waterfall because nature was too damaged because of the amount of visitors. 
We heard that you can also walk inside the canyon (only in summer time) because the water levels of the river are usually not high. You might still need to wade the river a few times. We didn’t know about this while we were there, but we’re sure it’s definitely worth seeing the canyon from this point of view as well.

Content: The national park of Skaftafell is part of a bigger national park Vatnajökull with plenty of hiking trails along a lot of stunning highlights. The landscape was shaped by thousands of years of volcanic activity. In this park you’ll find several waterfalls, glaciers, mountains and valleys. 
The Svartifoss waterfall is probably the most famous highlight in Skaftafell. This waterfall is characterized by gigantic basalt columns, as seen at Reynifsjara beach. An observation platform and a fence are placed in front of the waterfall to prevent visitors from damaging nature and sliding over the slippery rocks. The hike to this waterfall is relatively short but quite steep. Don't let this stop you, we’ve seen people of all ages do this walk and it is well worth it.  Skaftafell is also a popular place to explore the glaciers on all kinds of different experiences and tours. We decided to go on a glacier walk a little further at Jokulsarlon Glacier lagoon.

Diamond Beach

Unknown, Diamond Beach

Content: Diamond beach is one of those places where you find yourself in another world for a while. On this black volcanic beach numerous large and smaller ice blocks are scattered like diamonds over the sand. The contrast between the shimmering white and blue ice with the deep black of the sand makes it a truly magical place. Diamond beach is the result of glacial ice breaking off the glacier.  This ice drifts over the Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon towards the sea. Here the big chunks of ice crumble into thousands of smaller pieces and wash up on the beach. The amount of ice blocks you’ll find on the beach strongly depends on weather conditions and time of the year. When we were visiting the beach, there weren’t a lot of ice blocks on the beach.
Diamond beach is also home to many seals, so if you look carefully you might spot a few of them. If you don’t see them here, chances are you see them in Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon. If you’re really lucky you also might see orcas, as this is one of the best places to see them from the shore.

It is a huge glacial lake at the foot of the Breiðamerkurjökull glacier, a glacial tongue of Iceland’s biggest glacier Vatnajökull. With its nearly 250m depth, it is Iceland’s deepest lake. All over this lake gigantic ice blocks of glacial ice are drifting around and slowly floating towards the sea, creating an ever-changing scenery. So this lake will never look the same every time you visit. Don’t forget to look out for these cute seals swimming around in the cold water of the lagoon.  There’s a lot of activities you can do around the lake. You can go on a boat tour to see the lagoon and it’s icebergs and the seals from up close. Or you can even paddle yourself around on one of the guided kayak tours.  It is a very interesting place, but there’s something you have to keep in mind about this place. The lake is less than a century old and only started forming in 1935 due to rapidly increasing temperatures in Iceland.

Skaftafell is a popular place for glacier walks but also at Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon you can go on different ice experiences. We went on a glacier walk, including a visit to an ice cave with Ice Explorers. Equipped with crampons, helmet and harness we walked over the ice of the Breidamerkurjökull with our guide. On the tour we got a lot of information about the glaciers and the ice caves. Here too you are faced with the facts of global warming and certainly how fast it is all happening. We are not die-hard climate activists or anything like that, but this really woke us up. Therefore we think there is a real need for more people to be made aware of these obvious consequences. So go on a glacier walk for the experience and spread the word!

Stuðlagil Canyon

Unknown, Stuðlagil Canyon

Content: Stuðlagil canyon is a beautiful canyon that hardly anyone knew about until recently. It is formed by numerous gigantic basalt rock columns on both sides of the river. For a long time the canyon was hidden under the water. With the introduction of an hydroelectric plant in 2009 the water level decreased drastically, which made the canyon appear. In summer, from June until the second week of August this place is even more beautiful when the color of the river is turquoise green, showing a wonderful contrast with the gigantic grey basalt columns. In the third week of August, the hydroelectric reservoir is full and the overflow sends the dirty glacial water down the river, making the water brown and dirty. Although the color of the river changes over the seasons, the beautiful basalt columns formation remains very impressive to see. You can see the river from both the east and the west side. Viewing the canyon from the west side is much less exciting. Here, you can stand on an oddly placed platform, offering you a minimal overview of the canyon. We recommend making your way to the east side. Navigate to farm Klaustursel, where you find a bridge with a parking lot. You can either park your car here, or you can drive over the bridge, turn right and continue your way for 2 kilometers over a not so smooth dirt road towards the closest parking lot. It’s not the best road, and only recommended when driving a 4x4 or a stick shift. When you’ve parked your car you have to walk for another 2 kilometers to the canyon. On the way you pass Stuðlafoss, one of the most beautiful basalt column waterfalls. When you arrive at the canyon you can stay on top of the canyon, or you can climb down to the river to see the basalt columns from up close. But be careful because it can be wet and really slippery.

Because of the power there’s always this foggy cloud around the waterfall and when the sun is shining You can visit the waterfall from both the east and the west side. To reach the east side you have to drive a gravel road (864) for a long time and to be honest we found this to be a very unpleasant road. It appears that the passability can vary, so inform yourself if you choose this road. 
Reaching the west side appears to be more pleasant as this is a paved road (862). We didn’t visit the west side but we believe that you get a better view because from here you can see the front side of the waterfall. The westside is therefore the most visited.

You can reach Selfoss by walking 1 kilometer south of the mighty Dettifoss. For Dettifoss we recommended the west side, but for Selfoss we prefered the east side because it’s hard to see the whole waterfall and it’s form on the west side. Don’t confuse Selfoss waterfall with Selfoss town in South-Iceland.

The most popular place for whale watching is probably Husavik, but we heard that you have a better chance of seeing whales in Akuyreri. The explanation for this is that Akuyreri is located in a fjord where whales can find more nutrients than in the open sea. We cannot guarantee that this will always be the case.
