the most beautiful places on earth

Dyrhólaey

One of the main reasons I wanted to visit the south coast of Iceland, this incredible nature reserve is not only home to an abundance of rich wildlife, but incredible geology and scenic views. The causeway is the first thing that struck me as just an absolutely...

Seljalandsfoss

If you’re travelling from Reykjavik, Seljalandsfoss will be the first major waterfall you’ll come across heading east on route 1. Extremely hard to miss as you can see it and its neighbouring waterfalls on the cliff face from several kilometres away, if that wasn’t...

Stampar Crater Row

One of those places that just make you stop in your tracks at the side of the road, Stampar Crater Row caught my eye because of its immensely craggy black landscape; but the steam rising from a nearby chimney acts as a great way-marker from route 425. You might find...

What To Pack For A Trip To Iceland
