For those who want to visit Iceland, we have prepared the TOP 5 best ways to spend time in this country. Here you will find out about the places worth visiting in the first place.
1. See an active volcano
Iceland is known for its many volcanoes, as it is of volcanic origin and is located in a hotspot, on a mountain range in the mid-Atlantic. There are approximately 130 volcanic peaks here. Since the formation of Iceland in 874, 18 of these volcanoes have erupted. The most active and unstable volcano in this country is Grimsv?tn. We talked about some of them in a selection of photographs with volcanic eruptions. Over the past 500 years, Iceland’s volcanoes have ejected one-third of the world’s lava, which is why it is best to watch lava flows here.
2. Visit the Blue Lagoon
The Blue Lagoon is Iceland’s most popular geothermal resort and an exciting place to get a good swim and improve your health. From the outside, the lagoon looks like a huge natural open-air swimming pool. The water temperature here is approximately 37–39 degrees Celsius. Volcanic hot sea water is rich in minerals such as sulfur and quartz. It is useful in various skin conditions such as psoriasis. You can swim here all year round, regardless of the season, the water will always be very warm.
3. Walk under the waterfall
Visit the Skogafos waterfall, one of Iceland’s most famous waterfalls, falling 60 meters high. The most interesting moment is the walk under the waterfall, where you can see Skogathos from the other side and take amazing photos
4. Stand on the glacier
Glaciers and ice sheets make up 11 percent of the entire territory of Iceland. Here you can go on a trip with a professional guide and climb to the surface of the glacier. The most fun way to do this is to go on a snowmobile tour. One of the most exciting places for such an adventure will be the glacial lagoon, which we wrote about earlier.
5. See a real geyser
Iceland is home to one of the most famous geysers in the world, Geysir. This is a hot spring that throws columns of water and steam high into the air. In fact, the word “geyser” comes from the Icelandic language, and all other geysers in the world are named after Geysir. At the best of times, the spring throws out columns of water up to 70 meters high.
