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.

With a combination of travel and lectures, Geocamp Iceland and Hit Iceland offer a unique opportunity to get a view of and understand how climate change is affecting our planet in the form of a tour. The trip takes you through exotic locations of volcanoes, glaciers, ice tongues, canyons, craters, lagoons, deep highland, small fishing towns, and other relevant and interesting places. Our approach for this tour is based on geology, environmental science, and changes in nature. We will also visit fishing villages to highlight how changes in the environment and natural resources affect various communities and their economy.

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.

Of all the places on the planet, Iceland is one of the best places to visit and see the Northern Lights. From here, the likelihood of actually seeing the Aurora Borealis is good. There are many places to select from, both around Reykjavík (the capital) and around the country. In the countryside, there are also a lot of places and not far apart. READ FULL ARTICLE.

Skarðsvík is a small and rather exceptional beach in the landscape in Iceland. Surrounded by harsh and bare black lava, the soft orange-yellow beach conveys a convenient contrast to the surrounding landscape. Due to the depth and the bright and clean ocean by the beach the color is a bit light blue and turquoise only enhancing the whole experience of visiting the beach.

Every river and every creek have some beginning, a source. Often the source is hidden under a glacier, in a lake or a ground spread over vast moorland. But sometimes you can actually see the source floating from a slope of a mountain or running from under a lava field. It is always a fascinating sight. But occasionally you can find a place where clear, clean, beautiful water is flowing from below as a spring and feeding a creek or a river.

Sigöldugljúfur canyon is one of the many places in Iceland that is still to be discovered as a major tourist attraction. A beautiful canyon with a connection that is almost magical between vegetation, creeks, waterfalls, and cliffs. It has all the ingredients to become a popular destination as it looks like something in a fairytale. Located at Sigalda by the mountain road F208 a few minutes after you turn from the F26 Highland road and drive to the geological wonderland Landmannalaugar. It is easily accessible when you drive down the slope at the small hill Sigalda.

Like most volcanic craters that have small lakes within its boundaries, Hnausapollur is a maar, formed and erupted about 11 thousand years ago. Usually, the reason for the lake within the crater is the depth of the that goes down to subsoil water or ground water. This combination of water, crater, and vegetated brims is usually a beautiful sight where colors interact fabulously.

Although nothing but, this beautiful maar or volcanic crater bears the name ugly as a name. Ljótipollur translated means ugly puddle or ugly pound. But most craters that have lakes within them are exceptionally scenic and photogenic. Ljótipollur is no exception with its read and vegetated slopes and visible lava layers at the brim. Maars are usually quite deep as the water originates in ground water below and do not have any creeks into or out of the lake, only underground. Most often craters with small lakes have this beautiful turkish blue lake which gives the crater an enhance value for photographers. All such craters are great attractions for photographers.
