If you are thinking about taking a vacation in Europe then you can do so in Iceland where nature goes beyond resorts and beaches. Fortunately, unlike many other countries most of the tourist attractions that the country has to offer require no entrance fees. The best time to visit Iceland is in the summer.

You may also visit east of Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland, in order to reach the Golden Falls, the Hvita river feeds this breathtaking waterfall and it runs down a twofold cascade in order to create one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the world.

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.

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.
