What are the most important landmarks in Iceland

Landmarks in Iceland that I would definitely like to show when we were on this northern island two summer holidays of 30 days each. I will share in a few parts selected pictures of the nature of Iceland, as many memories are already being collected and I cannot write in detail which one is from where.

All the photos are of high quality, especially of waterfalls and geysers. In fact, my family was moving a rental car that we rented from Reykjavik. There are two things I should mention about Iceland. It is very expensive, very clean and tidy here. Everything is about renewable energy, with few exceptions, of course. The standard of living is very high, but it didn't bother us much because we only need basic things to eat and drink. Bookmark and Share

We slept in apartments, houses and bungalows, like camping vans, and a great trip happened. I was impressed by nature and wildlife, but also by how green and tidy the cities are, how many playgrounds they have, electricity and wood barbecue parks, which were cleanly cleaned, how accessible was the environment for people with wheelchairs, how in many places there were built lagoons (warm pools with natural shapes) and free of charge.

I'm uploading some of my favorite photos here (some are not very good quality, you'll excuse me) by dividing them into 3 parts - urban, vegetation and animals.

The climate is sub-polar, so it's good to visit all the sights in the summer.

Our photos are a lot more, but it is not my goal to upload every sights we have seen, but rather things that have impressed me. Hope you find it interesting. The climate is sub-polar, so it's good to visit all the sights in the summer.

What landmarks in Iceland you must visit

This is our proposal, which may be complemented by several more. Everything is very beautiful and well preserved.

  • Gullfoss Waterfall
  • Great geyser
  • Pingveller National Park
  • Hverir Geothermal Area
  • Vatnayokul National Park
  • Joculararlon Ice Lagoon
  • Landmannalaugar
  • The blue Lagoon

In addition to all of the above, we can write a short explanation of where it is and how to get there. I mean Gullfoss Waterfall, which is located southwest and is powered by the Hvita River. The river comes from the second largest glacier on Langjokull Island. Likewise, the Great Geyser can be visited by tourists.

The water reaches a height of 80 meters and has been observed for 10,000 years. This is the first geyser in the world. Let's write a few words about Pingveller National Park. The most beautiful part is the picturesque canyon that runs throughout the territory. Vatnajokull National Park, one of the largest in Europe. It occupies 13% of the area of Iceland. In my opinion, it is difficult for the average tourist, although there is very good infrastructure in the area.

If you want to walk on foot we can recommend Landmannalaugar. There are one- and three-day tours organized by the capital Reykjavik that we recommend. Finally, we can suggest you take a swim in the Blue Lagoon. It is the largest geothermal center in Iceland. Water is extremely useful and hot, it cures many diseases of the musculoskeletal system.
