Thingvellir National Park

This national park is the hole of the largest lake in Island. The lake that contains the spot that separates europe from America. Really amazing and breathtaking views all around the park, being just 45 minutes away from Reykjavik. It is not too far to visit and why not give that lake a try if you area professional diver.

DAY 5

Hornstrandir Nature Reserve

From the Standir district you can reach Hornstrandir. This place was only reachable by individual tourists recently after the area knew a slight increase in population. Travellers from all around the world now visit this attraction thanks to its lack of human traces all around. Complete isolation and the relationship you feel you have with mother nature is just amazing! This place really deserves a visit while you are there!

DAY 6

Skaftafell Nature Reserve

Literally, one of the best landscapes ever to be in the world. This formation took millions of years by the mix of water and fire, this is why they call it the land of fire and ice. There are a number of hiking trails that you can try. The most well known one and famous one is the one that leads to Svartifoss (the black fall). Really amazing place to visit and you should also have this in your plan to visit Iceland.

The canyon is 2 miles in length surrounded with a wall cliff. Absolutely stunning and words can’t describe this beauty.

DAY 8

Lake Myvatn Geothermal Area

This lake is just far from description. It took it about 2300 years to form out of volcanic formations resulting in this amazing and breathtaking lake. This is a place where again, lava and water go along and the lake is still in the process of formation, who knows after 3000 years how it is going to look! This is an attraction that attracts a huge number of travellers from all around the globe thanks to the easy access.
