21 Of The Most Beautiful Places To Visit In
I fell in love with this extraordinary country when I visited, here are my best and most beautiful places to visit in Iceland…
Gullfoss is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the country. It’s actually two separate waterfalls, the higher one has a drop of 11 metres and the falls below have a drop of 21 metres.
It’s undeniably beautiful with miles of untamed Icelandic countryside and a huge crystal clear lake filled with species of fish found nowhere else, but arguably its more famous for its location.

The Great Geysir is now sadly inactive but thankfully the next biggest, ‘Strokkur’ still obligingly spews hot water as high up as 30 metres every 10 minutes.
Yes it’s a tourist trap, yes it’s man-made (it’s been dug out and filled with the outflow from the nearby Svartsengi thermal power station) but there really is nowhere else like it on earth.
It’s a great place to explore in Iceland in both summer and winter but in winter it takes on new beauty bathed in a pink hue with a background of snow-capped mountains.
