Continue to the geothermally active area around Lake Laugarvatn, surrounded by looming volcanic mountains. Stop at Geysir, the origin of the term ‘geyser’ in English, and the often-erupting Strokkur. Strokkur erupts every 6-8 minutes, ensuring a great photo op of the bright blue spray.
Visit Gullfoss, the most famous of Iceland’s many impressive waterfalls, and return to Reykjavík through Skálholt, the site of the country’s first Episcopal See, dating from 1056. Stop in the charming garden village of Hveragerði.
