So Much To See, So Much To Do
South Iceland has a long list of sights and activities
The wealth of South Iceland lies in the variety of geological, historical and nature sites along with the long list of activities that can be experienced in the region.
 
This is the region with a series of geological wonders unique to Iceland. There’s Geysir; the Gulfoss, Haifoss, Skogafoss, Systra and Seljalandsfoss waterfalls; Þingvellir, where the tectonic plates meet and crack the Earth; Europe’s largest glacier, Vatnajökull, just one of several; the Kerið caldera; world-famous volcanos like Hekla, the Gateway to Hell, Lakagigar, Laki, the notorious Eyjafjallajökull and the Katla Geopark; fantasy sites like Þórsmörk and Jökulsárlon.
 
Amongst those wonders are the historical sites like the world’s longest-running parliament founded at Þingvellir; museums, churches, the Stöng settlement, the Saga centre and villages like Eyrabakki.
 
Activities abound. Tours take you to all the sites, including the glaciers. Horse riding tours are popular. Try the riverjet, boat trips or kayaking; scuba diving in clear waters, fishing or caving. Independent travellers can try hiking and cycling, camping or caravanning. Winter activites are just as thrilling.
 
Fortunately, there is plenty of accommodation available throughout the region from camping to high-class hotels and restaurants to suit every taste. A developed infrastructure helps you get the most from your trips.
