From the mesmerizing Blue Lagoon, to the most active volcano on the island; These are 12 AMAZING Places in Iceland ! Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 12. Reynisdrangar 11. The Ice Cave 10. Goðafoss 9. Skogafoss 8. Kirkjufell 7. Strokkur 6. Grjótagjá This place with a really hard name to pronounce is basically evidence that Iceland is a pretty mysterious and magical place. This certainly a “hot spot” for locals and tourist a like. The natural forming rift here is found over geothermal activity but it heats up to just the right temperature, allowing people to take dip. In 1975, after a volcano erupted the water temperature rose too high for swimmers and due to the varying pressure in the Earth’s crust, it’s recommended to check with locals to see if it’s safe to swim in. It’s not everyday you get the chance to swim at sweet cave hot spring pool like this, and we imagine you don’t want to get boiled alive if it’s too hot, so it’s worth asking. 5. Blue Lagoon, Iceland Not a big fan of chlorine getting in your eyes? If you’re looking for a naturally warm swimming pools, look no further than the Northern European country of Iceland. This actually wasn’t naturally created like many on this list but made during a construction of geothermal powerplant. People began to notice the therapeutic qualities of the water and the mud and they just decided to not build the power plant after all . What’s also crazy about this pool, is that it’s located on the Mid Atlantic Ridge which will allow you to swim from one fault to the other, technically on two different continents. It’s certainly one of Iceland's most popular tourist attractions so you might see some cocktail waitresses bringing out some drinks! While this location is open to the public, the closest hotel that most people stay at here is the Blue Lagoon Clinic hotel. So drop your stuff off, enjoy this natural wonder. And don’t forget to bring a towel! 4. Hallgrimskirkja When you reach the charming capital city of Reykjavik before flying back, make sure to check out a few of the man made structures as well. And if you’re feeling extra courageous be sure to try the SHEEP’S head at a local restaurant, which is a delicacy here! This strange Lutheran church is known as Hallgrimskirkja and I really would not want to take a spelling test in Iceland! It’s one of the most notable buildings in this city and it rises 244 feet in the sky, making it Iceland’s tallest structure! The peak of the tower is also used as an observational tower to keep an eye on the city! The view from the top is certainly amazing as well and you can notice how colorful the town truly is! There’s also an organ here with over 5000 pipes and is 45 feet tall! The statue of the explorer Leif Ericsson stands proud in front of the church here and which was a present from us Americans. By the way, your welcome 3. Asbyrgi And just like that, we’re back to the nature which is probably the best thing to enjoy on this island Located in Northern Iceland this is amazing canyon is flooded with trees down below and is home to a vast ecosystem of different species. This is found east of Husavik and is notable for its steep canyon sides which can rise up to 300 feet high at a near perfect 90 degree angle in some cases. It’s believed that this unique canyon was formed from massive glacial flooding after the last ice age! It must have been a pretty dramatic thing to witness. The horseshoe shape will help give you an idea of where you are at all times! 2. Lake Kerid This intense piece of Icelandic geography is found in the western part of the country and is also impressive when it freezes over a few times each year. This lake is surrounded by red volcanic rock and it’s about 160 feet deep! It’s become a localized tourist attraction and there’s even been concerts on the lake with musicians performing on rafts. The lake formed from rainwater filling up the caldera like a swimming pool and it’s relatively new, forming about 3000 years ago. This used to be a cone shaped volcano and when all of the lava was spewed, parts of the magma chamber collapsed 1.Mt. Hekla In the land of fire and ice, we feel as though it’s appropriate to put Iceland's most active and one of their most dangerous volcanoes as our number 1. Hikers still visit this place despite the possibility of it going off at any moment! It last went off in 2000 and geologists have certainly been monitoring this place more closely now . Despite its potential to devastate the country, it’s become an iconic symbol of iceland and there’s even an airplane Icelandair decided to name the Hekla Aurora. This amazing geological structure is perfect example of how something can be beautiful and deadly at the same time. You better believe an eruption could certainly ruin someone’s vacation here, but it seems worth the risk.
