Iceland has been called the ‘’Land of Ice and Fire’’ because they co-exist equally in this country. In actual fact, ice covers just 10% of this Island of contrasts, yet it has Europe’s largest glaciers.

The national population is a mere 330,000, with the majority living in the capital, Reykjavik, and its immediate hinterland. It is a young country geologically – fairly barren, with active volcanoes, black sandy beaches, and roaring water.

One of the things that it is known for is its waterfalls, and they are among the lovely natural features that visitors can enjoy.

#Godafoss: Located in North Iceland between Akureyri and Lake Myvatn, this picturesque Godafoss or ‘Waterfall of the Gods’ is one of the most impressive in the country. Ice-blue glacial water flows over an elegant semi-circular arc. It creates blue-green swirling patterns in the water below among the surrounding lava.

#ALDEYJARFOSS WATERFALL: The 20-meter high waterfall Aldeyjarfoss in the river Skjálfandafljót is a powerful stream of glacial water forcing its way from the Icelandic Highland between stunning basalt columns cliffs. Proximity to the waterfall is almost intimidating as its power, and the muddy color is somehow threatening. The river and the waterfall are carrying tons of soil and dirt from under the glacier Vatnajökull ice cap determined to deliver it to the northern shore where the river meets the open sea. But this company of a beautiful basalt column cliffs and the mighty stream of dirt and water is a breathtaking combination. And the nature of it is more like a beast than beauty.

#Elliðaárdalur Valley: A 15-minute bus ride from central Reykjavík lies Elliðaárdalur Valley, a large green, public space. It's a very popular destination with the locals for all sorts of outdoor activity, including jogging, biking, walking, horse riding and playing.

Through the valley one of Iceland's best salmon-fishing rivers. Fishing is not allowed for everyone, to get a permit one will have to join Reykjavík's Fly-fishing Club and partake in an annual lottery. However, everybody is welcome to navigate the banks of the river, and perhaps see a hunter skilfully catch a salmon.

Elliðaárdalur is one a few habitats of wild rabbits. Like most wild mammals in Iceland, these were originally brought here for farming or as pets. Some got loose, and somehow manage to survive the Icelandic winter.

#Seljalandsfoss: Seljalandsfoss waterfall along Iceland’s southern coast is fed by melting water from the famed glacier-capped Eyjafjallajokull volcano. This powerful waterfall cascades into a pretty meadow. However, the path that runs behind the curtain of water is the main attraction. There you can enjoy a truly unique viewpoint of the waterfall.
