The top 484 attractions in Iceland

Lakes in Jokursarlon
Jökulsárlón Lake
(24)
This is the Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon in Iceland. These photographs were taken during the tour "Spring and Northern Lights in Iceland" with the tour group Polar Lands Travel between March 27 - April 2, 2013.
Waterfalls in Selfoss
Gullfoss Falls
(16)
The famous golden waterfall of Iceland is one of the biggest tourist attractions in the region. It is in the Selfoss area which contains one of the other biggest attractions, the Geyser. These waterfall is on the route of the river Hvítá and drops 32 m. The most impressive view is of the canyon into which the water falls. It is 70 meters deep and dizzying to contemplate.
Waterfalls in Skógar
Skógafoss Waterfall
(17)
The Skógafoss waterfall is on the south of the island. It is about 25 meters wide and about 60 meters high and is in the middle of a cliff near Skógar. This waterfall is very close to the parking area. Legend has it that a settler named Þrasi hid a treasure chest behind the waterfall which has still not been found. You can also climb some steps alongside the waterfall and see it from above. For half of the climb you can take a small path that allows you to reach a ledge from where you have great views of the waterfall. Also we can see a troll-shaped stone.
Volcanoes in Selfoss
Geysir
(9)
Seeing the great Geyser in Selfoss in Iceland is a unique experience. It is one of the most visited attractions in the country along with the Gullfoss waterfalls. To get to this area you pass ​​warm water pools that can reach over 100 degrees and the water boils. When the famous geyser blows there are columns of hot air expelled and in some cases they reach 35 m. Do not leave the area without a swim in the heated pool, a unique experience.
Cities in Reykjavik
Reykjavik
(12)
The Icelandic capital is a sprawling city, clean, with wonderful air, water, a very active cultural life, background landscapes and breathtaking views. It is ten minutes from the center, and a good climate and it is magical. A place to live, despite the dark hours of winter. The perfect place to get away from everything and yet it is all just around the corner. Lively in summer, is lit up, and it is romantic in the winter. If you want it all, go to Reykjavik.
Waterfalls in Selfoss
Seljalandsfoss
(15)
The Seljalandsfoss waterfall is in Iceland, in the southern part of the Nordic island. Very close to the black sand beaches and the famous Eyjafjallajökull glacier and volcano. It's really easy to find as it is on the right if you follow the Ring Road towards Reykjavik. For me it is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the country, with an extreme beauty, you can take a path behind it to get a special perspective, and watch its fall, of about 60 meters. I eas really captivated and although there are other waterfalls with more flow, and fall ... I think it here where I spent more time in contemplation. I recommend visiting it on a summer afternoon, as the sun lights it up perfectly and you can photograph it as it deserves.
Spa in Grindavik
The Blue Lagoon
(16)
The Blue Lagoon, or Bláa lónið in Icelandic, is 1 of the most touristy places, and the most rewarding. This is a huge pool filled with water that is of a distinctive color from volcanic springs. It is about 40 minutes from Reykjavik Keflavik and 15 from where we were staying. It was one of the 1st places we visited. Everything in the Blue Lagoon is incredible. The volcanic landscape of the Reykjanes Peninsula which took us to get there, to begin with. Then there are the columns of steam that rose from the Svartsengi power station, along the banks of the Blue Lagoon. Inside is all prepared for the comfort and well-being of the visitors. There are towels, bathrobes, dressing rooms, cafes, restaurants, stores ... Everything is controlled with a wrist-band you get when entering and serves as payment. The water is hot, but you soon get accustomed to it, and the air temperature is about 15 º. Besides fun, the Blue Lagoon is comforting for the body, as its waters are rich in silica mud, algae and salt. These waters and mud have generated its own brand of beauty and health. I already said it was very touristy. Only the color of the water and steam columns worth visiting the Blue Lagoon and make a few pictures. Yes, the price is a bit expensive and usually has a lot of people. As the hours are very widespread, try to go early or midweek.
Waterfalls in Akureyri
Goðafoss Waterfall
(9)
The Godafoss waterfall (or waterfall of the Gods) is one of the most impressive waterfalls in Iceland. It is located in the north of the island, between the town of Akureyri and Lake Myvatn. If you park at the main parking lot, you will see a stunning view of the top of the waterfall. One story says that the chief Thorgeir was pagan and then he converted to Christianity. It has been said that after leaving his pagan roots in 1000 and converting to Christianity, he threw the wooden images of the pagan gods to the waterfall.
Waterfalls in Dettifoss
Dettifoss
(5)
It's amazing to see the force with which the water rushes. My intention was take a photo with long exposure without anyone in the picture but it was inevitable. I tried to warn people but screeching didn't help with the strong flow of water next to me they couldn't hear me. Instead I took advantage of the human element to realize this photograph.
Beaches in Vík í Mýrdal
Vik Beach
(9)
This small village in southern Iceland has beautiful black sand beaches. Though you can't swim because the water is frozen, it's still nice to take a walk along the beach and then have a nice cup of Icelandic soup. I took this photo at Vik beach (Southern Iceland). Surrounded by high green mountains, there is a small church that surreal. It's a beautiful place that I recommend!
Waterfalls in Jokursarlon
Svartifoss Waterfall
(5)
This is the Svartifoss Waterfalll, or the Black Waterfall. These photographs were taken during the tour "Spring and Northern Lights in Iceland" with the Polar Lands Travel tour group from 27 March - 2 April 2013.

Nature Reserves in Höfn
Skaftafell National Park
(2)
Very great experience although you must be prepared for snow and rain, its a bit rough to walk on the ice.
Nature Reserves in Hveragerði
Þingvellir National Park
(4)
From Reykjavik you can see the three most prominent landmarks of Iceland towards Pingvellir on Ring Road 1, north and then by 36. Pingvellir is was declared a UNESCO World Heritage in 2004 and it is one of the most popular tourist stops in Iceland. It is 50 km northeast of the capital on the banks of Pingvallavatn. There is a visitors center at the entrance with an exhibition about the place. There is also a viewpoint there with a panoramic view of the whole area and Lake Pingvallavatn. Pingvellir can be visited at any time since the access door is never locked. For this reason it is worth avoiding peak hours for buses with tourists (11 to 16). The interest of this place is also in its geology. In Pingvellir you can see the boundaries of the two major tectonic plates, the American and Eurasian, separating above sea level. These plates seperate at this point 1 mm annually.
Churches in Reykjavik
Hallgrímskirkja
(8)
This interesting church of Iceland's capital is undoubtedly the tallest building in town, calling attention as it is visible from anywhere, even kilometers away from the city. its style is modern and "strange" as everything has its detractors but what is for sure, whether beautiful or not, is that from the tower you can see the best view of the city, and for that alone it is worth seeing.
Nature Reserves in Hvolsvöllur
Vatnajökull
(9)
The Skaftafell National Park (http://www.Vatnajokulsthjodgardur.Is/) is the largest in Iceland and Europe. The park, equivalent to over 12% of the country, is Iceland's most important conservation project. The main entrance is in Skaftafell, along the Vatnajökull glacier. You have to deviate about five kilometres from the Ring Road to reach the visitor centre with a small cafe, a park with picnic tables and a camping area. The Vatnajökull glacier is the largest in Iceland and one of the largest in Europe. It has an area of ​​8,100 square kilometres, and is 1,000 meters thick at its thickest point. Under this vast sheet of ice, there are several volcanoes. The Guinness World Records has declared Vatnajökull as the place with the most visibility. From here, you can see Slættaratindur, the highest mountain on the Faroe Islands standing 550 kilometres away. We walked on this glacier all morning. You can book an English tour online with Mountain Guides at http://www.Mountainguides.Is/. It was an unforgettable experience.
Lakes in Reykjahlíð
Myvatn Lake
(4)
In Lake Myvatn I managed to take some wonderful pictures during sunset. Unfortunately, I somehow managed to delete these from my camera, so I was very upset to find I don't have any pictures from this trip. The lake is beautiful, although, as its name suggests, the clouds of flies that surround it in summer can be quite overwhelming.
Volcanoes in Akureyri
Namaskard Geothermal Area
(5)
Namaskard is geothermal and sulfuric area with water and mud mixed to reach 100 degrees. Is located along the eastern slope of Mount Namajall, east of Lake Mývatn. The first impression is shocking. What I remember most is the smell ... Very intense. It seems impossible that such places exist.
Lakes in Laugarvatn
Pingvallavatn Lake
(1)
In Reykjavik, the complete tour of the three most famous places in Iceland starts in the capital (Thingvellir) then continues towards the Ring Road 1 north, and then take the 36. The first thing we came across was Pingvallavatn, the largest lake in the entire country (84 km2). It is situated in the valley of Thingvellir. It is relatively close to Reykjavik. Near this lake there is a large open area with many stone mounds (cairns). In modern times, the cairns have emerged as benchmarks. In antiquity they were erected as sepulchral monuments, or used for astronomical reasons.
