    Northern Lights

    Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights – The "midnight sun" have been talked about in many books and it has even been discussed in a lot of schools. If you want to view such a sight in which the sun is still up even at midnight, then come to Iceland as you will not find such an occurrence in any other country.

    Blaa Lonid (Blue Lagoon)

    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.

    Kerid

    This is the scene of a lake inside a volcano. Oftentimes, when visiting other countries you will notice both inactive and active volcanoes that spew lave every few minutes. Here, however, you will notice a lake and not lava in the crater of the volcano.

    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.
