Strokkur


Iceland has man geothermal spots, two of which are Stokkur and Geysir, which are a couple kilometers to the western side of the Golden Falls. Visiting Geysir is the safer of the two as it almost never erupts, as oppose to Strokkur which erupts every couple of minutes. However, it will be a great sight and a good photo if you stand from a distance that is safe.

This is a popular health center in the southwestern part of Iceland which hosts a pool known as the Blue Lagoon. This so happens to be a spa in the middle of lava filled with strikingly blue waters. This is one of the arm areas of the country as oppose to the snow-filled impression that the name of the country implies.

Pingvellir National Park


UNESCO had good reasons for recognizing this park as one of the heritage sites of the world. This park is not only the longest parliamentary field around but it is also where the North American and European shelf plates move. This park is also thirty-five miles from the east of the capital.
