Love ‘behind the scenes’ experiences? Then you can’t miss a visit to the magnificent Seljalandsfoss. As you reach the site driving down Route 1, you’ll catch your first glimpse of the waterfall. You can then walk up to it from the front before following the path along the side, right up next to it, and then directly behind it. The roar of the water and the mist on your face will wake you up and make you feel alive!
4. GO GLACIER HIKING
Glaciers and icecaps cover more than 11% of Iceland’s land area. The largest of these is Vatnajökull, which has nearly 30 smaller outlet glaciers that flow from it, including Sólheimajökull. Here you can take guided hikes to explore the surface of the glacier. If you’ve never been glacier hiking – add it to your bucket list! Hiking above it or inside one of its crevices, where you can awe at the oxygen-deprived blue ice, it will undoubtedly be one of the best experiences in Iceland.
