  • 1 Mývatn Region Recommended Recommended

    Nature and gardens

    Lake Mývatn is a bird sanctuary at the crossroads of great migratory routes. Its surroundings boast unique landscapes, thrillingly disrupted by its volcanic activity: Hverfjall crater, bubbling mud in Námafjáll and petrified lava at Dimmuborgir.

  • 2 Jökulsargljufur Gorges Recommended Recommended

    Nature and gardens

    These gorges - integrated into Vatnajökull National Park since 2008 - are a must. If only for the three spectacular waterfalls of Dettifoss (one of the most beautiful in the country), Selfoss and Hafragilsfoss, veritable national monuments, and for i..

  • Snæfellsjökull National Park encompasses a landscape shaped by volcanic activity and dotted with lava fields. Your first priority should be the mythical and magnificent Snæfellsjökull glacier (1,448m), wrapped in the literary glow of Jules Verne's Jo..

  • 4 Myvatn Nature Baths Recommended Recommended

    Nature and gardens


    Perched high up in Jardbadshólar, in a desolate natural setting, this bathing site boasts a splendid view over Lake Mývatn and Hverfjall. It is often compared to Keflavík's Blue Lagoon, but without the crowds, and with much more decent prices. Locate..

  • 5 Eyjafjördur Interesting

    Nature and gardens

    Eyjafjördur, the longest fjord in northern Iceland, with Hrísey Island in the middle, is located in one of the country's most highly populated regions. But never fear, its banks are as picturesque as ever, particularly on Tröllaskagi, the Trolls' pen..

  • 6 Vatnsnes Peninsula Interesting

    Nature and gardens

    The Vatnsnes Peninsula is one of Iceland's many remote landscapes. It's worth the trip, if only for its unreal peacefulness and seal colonies. On its east coast stands Hvitserkur Rock, an extraordinary geological sculpture.

  • 7 Hveravellir Interesting

    Nature and gardens

    Hveravellir, on route 35, is a geothermal site framed spectacularly by the Langjökull and Hofsjökull glaciers. Bubbling hot springs, turquoise waters, geysers and warm natural pools for relaxing your tired muscles. A dream come true! Accessible from ..

  • 8 Hallgrímskirkja Church Interesting

    Religious buildings


    The statue of Leif Eiríksson (1930), who "discovered" America, guards the entrance to Reykjavík's landmark church. Its white façade is reminiscent of glaciers and its dynamic curves imitate the columnar basalt that surrounds Svartifoss - th..

  • 9 Saga Museum

    Museums and art

    2 Grandagardi

    Previously housed in one of the six aluminium-covered water tanks in the Perlan, the Saga Museum moved into an old building in Reykjavik's Old Harbour in 2014. The museum recreates the important episodes in the island's history by means of scenes &qu..

  • 10 Lake Laugarvatn

    Nature and gardens

    Laugarvatn, a large lake with hot springs and a spa of the same name, is a destination enjoyed by both foreigners and locals. Indulge in the pleasures of its relaxing warm baths in the open air, as well as kayaking and boat rides on the lake.

  • 11 Hallormsstadaskogur Forest

    Nature and gardens

    Iceland has made a big effort at reforestation, using imported trees among others. Hallormsstadaskógur Forest along Lake Lögurinn is its largest wooded area and is growing even larger due to its nurseries. There's also an arboretum and nice hiking tr..

  • 12 Grímsey Island

    Nature and gardens

    The summer sun never sets on Grímsey, Iceland's northernmost inhabited island, on the Arctic circle. It is a flat, treeless expanse with steep cliffs, but may have some surprises in store for you, such as an occasional visit from a polar bear.

  • 13 Breidafjördur

    Nature and gardens

    With its unique biodiversity, spectacular mountain backdrop and constellation of between 2,000 and 3,000 islands, vast Breidafjördur fjord is well worth the detour. While you're there, check out Flatey Island, inhabited year round, and its charming v..

  • 14 Eyjafjöll

    Nature and gardens

    The whole world learned how to pronounce a difficult name when Eyjafjöll, a volcano in the southern part of the country, awoke in March 2010 after 187 years of inactivity. The eruption created a plume of smoke that paralysed global air traffic. We ma..
