Natural wonders of Iceland.

Iceland is chock-full of magnificent locations, many of which are extremely easy to reach by car. In fact, Iceland might just be the ultimate road trip destination. Your trip starts in Reykjavik and covers the entire island, allowing you to take in majestic waterfalls, panoramic mountain views, and volcanic craters.

Waypoints.

Skógafoss.

From Reykjavik, you'll head directly to the Skógafoss, one of the most illustrious waterfalls in Iceland. The sheer scale and beauty of the scenery surrounding this waterfall makes this a must-see attraction for anyone visiting Iceland, as well as the perfect starting point for a road trip around the island.

Solheimasandur Plane Wreck.

The Solheimasandur Plane Wreck is an old military airplane that crashed in the middle of a vast black sand beach off the coast of Iceland. This surreal setting can be reached in about an hour on foot.

Lómagnúpur.

Iceland is full of roads that seem to go on forever. Every now and then, the vast expanses of land are interrupted by magnificent, stand-alone mountains which make the scenery even more surreal. The road that runs along the Lómagnúpur is one such place.

Fjaðrárgljúfur.

Fjaðrárgljúfur Canyon is one of Iceland's most iconic sites and should therefore be included in any itinerary of the island. From the parking area, its various observation points can easily be reached on foot.

Stokksnes.

Stokksnes Beach, with its black sand and jagged mountains in the distance, is one of the places that make Iceland truly unique. At sunrise and sunset, the site takes on a magical dimension. With a little luck, you'll be able to see the reflection of the mountain on the peaceful lake.

Búlandstindur.

Búlandstindur is another one of those places that you can admire from your car as it lies directly on the side of the road. In fact, we highly recommend taking a break along the way to let the remarkable presence of the Búlandstindur fill you with strength for the rest of the trip.

Krafla.

The northeastern part of Iceland is best known for its craters. After driving through massive sulfur fields (you may want to close the windows and air vents), you'll arrive at a parking area located directly on the crater. From there, you'll only have to walk a few steps to catch a glimpse of the crater's dazzling turquoise water.

Kirkjufell.

It may be the last stop on your Icelandic road trip, but Kirkjufell boasts some of the most incredible scenery the country has to offer. This famous mountain is best viewed in the wee hours when the sun rises from behind and creates a fabulous reflection on the lake in front of the mountain, provided if it's not too windy.
