With its immense glaciers, waterfalls and geysers, Iceland’s unique landscape makes the island a must-visit destination. In 2016, this country of 330,000 inhabitants received more than 1.75 million visitors (40 per cent more than the previous year). But while the first port of call for many is, quite rightly, the famous Golden Circle of natural sites near Reykjavik, including the Gullfoss waterfall and Strokkur geyser, there are plenty of equally spectacular landscapes across the country.
You’ve heard of the Blue Lagoon, but did you know about Seljavallalaug, an abandoned 1920s swimming pool in a spectacular natural setting in the South, where the natural spring water is always warm and inviting? Don’t expect any customer service – but it’s free to swim here.
