Iceland: home to wild horses, rushing waterfalls, mystical lagoons, and your next adventure. In our latest exploration of the Land of Fire and Ice, we’re exploring the most beautiful landscapes this incredible country has to offer. Whether you’ve visited Iceland countless times, you’re planning your first trip, or you’re still just dreaming about a visit, sit back and enjoy some of the greatest natural wonders of one of the greatest countries.
Begin the adventure in Hraunfossar, a lava waterfall. Cold water underground mixes with molten lava, and the result is a series of small, low waterfalls that seem to span as far as the eye can see. And if waterfalls are what you’re looking for, you can’t miss Godafoss, the legendary site of Iceland’s conversion to Christianity in the year 1000.
One of the most jaw-dropping places in a country that seems to have been built upon jaw-dropping places, Fjadrargljufur is a canyon which runs for about 2 kilometres, with the Fjadra river flowing below ad rough rock reaching up to 100 metres above. The awe-inspiring size of the canyon, and the beautiful green grass surrounding it, make for an incredible and peaceful place to explore in Iceland.
Iceland is also a great place for hiking enthusiasts! The Grabrok Crater rises 170 metres from the earth, and a well-maintained path circles the massive natural beauty, to the delight of hikers and travellers. The views travellers experience while hiking Grabrok are absolutely second to none, but we tried our best to show you here.
From towering waterfalls to dramatic canyons, black sand beaches, and geysirs, there’s never a shortage of incredible things to see during a visit to Iceland. No matter what part of the country you visit, or how many times you inevitably return once you do, every trip is as unique as the landscape. If that sounds like exactly your kind of adventure, why not start planning to pay the Land of Ice and Fire a visit?
