A short walk into Skaftafell National Park in South Iceland provides visitors with a breathtaking view of Svartifoss (Black Falls). Ice-cold meltwater from the Svinafellsjokull glacier feeds the famous Svartifoss waterfall. The waterfall tumbles down 20 metres (80ft) over a cliff which is bordered on both sides by tall black basalt columns, resembling pipes of a giant organ, which is where the waterfall gets its name. This wonder of natural architecture inspired the design for Iceland’s National Theatre and the Hallgrimskirkja church in Reykjavik.

Set along the eastern shore of Skjalfandi Bay, Husavik is a delightful town that has come into its own as a tourism destination in recent years. The plankton and fish-rich feeding ground of the surrounding waters have allowed the town to establish itself as the undisputed ‘Whale Watching Capital’ of Europe boasting astonishingly high success rates.

Dynjandi Waterfall (The Thunderer) is a collection of seven cascades resembling a tiered wedding cake. The thunderous power of the main cascade drops 100 meters (329 ft) off the edge of a mountain. Located just inland from Arnarfjordur fjord, the scenic trail to the base of the waterfall is easily accessible. There you have views seaward over lush valleys which make it an ideal picnic stop.

Here you see the first and only elephant in Iceland. This natural rock formation in the Westman Islands was formed ten thousand years ago so the elephant has been calmly sipping sea water since while countless sea birds rest, including our favourite the puffins. Have you ever spotted the Icelandic elephant?

Did you know you can snorkle between continents in clear glacial water in Iceland? Silfra is one of Iceland’s best kept secrets. Located in Þingvellir National Park, Silfra is a rift that is part of the divergent tectonic boundary between the North American and Eurasian plates. Silfra, by virtue of its location contains clear, cold water that attracts people from all of the world to go snorkling or diving due to its high visibility and geological importance. You are literally swimming between between two continental plates that drift apart 2 cm per year on average. It’s otherwordly underwater scenery in countless shades of blue will leave you lost for words. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The Reykjanes peninsula is an active volcanic system under its surface, situated at the south western end of Iceland. The peninsula is marked by its large lava fields, rock formations, active volcanism, numerous hot springs, geothermalenergy and rugged landscape, all this allowing little vegetation. The gray-green moss on the strange, otherwordly lava is usually the first glimpse visitors to Iceland get of the land of ice and fire.
