Seljalandsfoss waterfall

Skógafoss waterfall

This mighty waterfall is one of Icelands biggest waterfalls towering 60 meters high (197 ft.) and 25 meters (82 ft.) wide. By the waterfall you can visit Skogar folk museum to get a better insight into the life of Icelanders throughout history in the southern region. 

Skaftafell national park

Skaftafell national park was established in 1967. There luxuriant vegetation grows bewteen desert sands and glaciers. Interesting sights within the Skaftafell national park are Svartifoss waterfall, Kristínartindar mountain pass, Skaftafellsjökull glacier amongst other extraordinary sights.

Öræfajökull glacier

Öræfajökull glacier is a stratovolcano on the south-eastern part of Iceland. On top of the mountain lies an ice cap known as Öræfajökull glacier, which is the southern most part of the great Vatnajökull glacier. 

Jökulsárlón – The Glacier Lagoon

Jökulsárlón is one of the great wonders of Iceland. In the Glacier Lagoon, you can find huge blocks of ice and icebergs drifting about after breaking off the glacier Breiðamerkurjökull. The lagoon is not very wide but it is up to 250 meters (820 ft.) deep, which makes it the deepest lake in Iceland.
