1. The Golden Circle
The Golden Circle is a 300 km looping from Reykjavík into central Iceland and back. The best attractions here are Gullfoss Waterfall, Haukadalur Valey, and Þingvellir National Park.
Landmannalaugar is the place for hikers. Located in the highland of Iceland, this place offers every hiker with amazing trails and gorgeous view. Landmannalaugar scenery really looks like a painting.
Another best tourist attraction in Iceland is Gjáin with its small waterfalls, ponds, and volcanic structures. After hiking Landmannalaugar, this place will be the best place to take a break and enjoy the fairy scenery.
4. The Glacier Lagoon
You’d feel amazed if you are surrounded by floating icebergs. In summer, a boat tour along the lagoon will be great too. Keep your eyes alert because some beautiful seals might be swimming in its cold icebergs.
5. Blue Lagoon
Blue Lagoon is a geothermal spa which is located in a lava field in Grindavík on the Reykjanes Peninsula, southwestern Iceland. Your visit to Iceland is incomplete if you don’t come here and bath in its warm water.
6. South Coast
