Reykjavik is the gateway to Iceland's stunning natural wonders, which range from ice fields to boiling thermal pools. The landscape on the island seems to be in a continual process of transformation much like its society, which blends Nordic tradition with sophisticated technology.
This mineral-rich, geothermal pool is located in the middle of a lava field, with 100-degree temperatures year-round. Its soft, milky water comes from blue-green algae and white silica, natural skin conditioners.
Also known as the Golden Falls, this is Iceland's most famous waterfall, with an impressive 105-foot double cascade that plunges down a deep gorge, creating mist clouds and wondrous rainbows.
Thingvellir National Park
Situated in a rift valley and covered with pahoehoe lava, willow trees and blueberries, Thingvellir National Park is a remarkable example of typical Icelandic vegetation.
