Flögufoss is an impressive waterfall in the valley Breiðdalur in eastern Iceland. It is a fairly high waterfall, around 60 meters, and located in beautiful surroundings with geology speaking out loud from every angle. In the midst of the geologically fascinating valley Breiðdalur. Near the top of the waterfall, there is another small waterfall falling on a terrace and from that terrace the waterfall runs through a small stone arch all the way down to the bottom of the cliff.

If you enjoy the sounds of nature like the sound of a stream or a sound of water falling down a slope, you should consider visiting Stjórnarfoss. The area around the waterfall is quite scenic, pleasant and perfect for a picnic. If you have your own food and snacks on your Ring Road tour, this is a nice stop. It is also a good place to camp and usually less crowded than many other camping sites along the southern part of the Ring Road. If you have a tent it is a great place to overnight if you want the sound of the stream and waterfall to put you to sleep.

In recent years, Höfði House in the district of Laugardalur has become one of the major landmarks in Reykjavík the capital of Iceland. And not without a reason. It is famous for its history in Iceland and also internationally as a symbol referring to the end of the cold war, after Ronald Reagan president of the United States and Mikhail Gorbachev president of Union of Soviet Socialist Republics had their famous meeting in the house in 1986.

Everything about the sculpture Sun Voyager is fascinating. The Artist Jón Gunnar Árnason was a mechanic who left a successful career as a mechanic in his early career to become an artist. As an artist, he was a pioneer and a philosopher with a vision. In his life nothing had a higher priority than art. He is considered by many to be one of Iceland's most remarkable sculptor and artists. Jón Gunnar was born in 1931 and passed away in 1989 only 58 years old.

Hallgrímskirkja or The Church of Hallgrímur took its name from one of the most prominent individuals in the 17th century. Hallgrímur Pétursson (1614 - 1674) was a minister at Hvalsneskirkja in the Reykjanes Peninsula and later the Saurbær Church in Hvalfjörður. His life was quite colorful but an influential pastor at his time. Hallgrímur was also a poet and wrote some of the most important hymns in Iceland. His work, the Passion Hymns, consisting of 50 hymns dedicated to "The history of the pain and death of our Lord, Jesus Christ," is regarded as one of the most valuable contributions in Icelandic literature.

It is impossible to cover the whole country in a few days, but you can cover a lot if you stay in Reykjavík for a few days and travel to places like the Southern Region and Golden Circle, Snæfellsnes Peninsula and Reykjanes Peninsula, all locations that you can visit from Reykjavík in a day or two. Reykjavík is also a perfect place to see the Northern Lights. That is the reason why we recommend a stay in Reykjavík to enjoy and visit the many natural wonders in Iceland and also to enjoy the fabulous small city.

The Reykjavík city center district is the center of government, culture, and commerce in Iceland. In the city center, there are many government buildings and institutions, both for the Icelandic government and the city. The most prominent building is, of course, the Icelandic parliament by the tiny park Austurvöllur. When the parliament is in session, a flag is waving one the building.

Earthquakes tend to strengthen Geysir. It has had quite a few peeks during the nineteen century, as well as bursts of activities. If we go a bit further back, it had been more or less asleep for ages until the 1896 earthquake. Then it started erupting several times a day again, causing eruptions of up to 60 meters high and lasting for up to an hour. In 1910, Geysir was active every 30 minutes. The spells of activity rarely last more than a few months, and after the action in 1910, it looked as if the mighty Geysir was dead.

Today on December 1st 2017 our new prime minister, Katrin Jakobsdóttir, started her first day in office. Katrin is the leader of the Left-Green movement and is leading a government coalition with the Independent party (a right wing party) and the Progressive party (a farmers party) most often placed in the middle on the left-right political spectrum. A coalition that more or less covers the whole ideological scope and up to this moment was considered impossible.

Are you looking for a place to shake your brain and legs? Are you interested in Iceland and the many active natural forces like earthquakes, eruption and moving glaciers? The new Lava Center is a place you should seriously consider. A unique and highly interesting exhibition center with interactive exhibits located only a few kilometers from the notorious Eyjafjallajökuill glacier/volcano, and other active volcanos. Here you will find visual explanations of how movements in tectonic plates create earthquakes and also get an opportunity to feel the shake.
