Iceland’s southern coast is one of its most visited regions for one reason – the mind-blowing scenery. Here the ever-changing landscape alternates between smoking volcanoes, black sand beaches, snowy peaks and mossy lava fields. Combined with glittering glaciers and thundering waterfalls, it’s easy to see why Southern Iceland draws the largest crowds.
Iceland is known for its geysers, glaciers and waterfalls, and these are found in abundance in the south. Home to the picturesque Seljalandsfoss, the eponymous Geysir and a wealth of natural wonders, this is why Iceland’s scenery is legendary the world over. After ticking off the must-see sights, head further afield and discover the breathtaking multi-colored mountains of Landmannalaugar or spot the puffin colonies on the charming Westman Islands.
