Dettifoss is reportedly the most voluminous waterfall in Europe, as 1,000 litres of water per second plunge over its rocky edge.


The southernmost settlement on Iceland’s main island, Vík is one of the most attractive towns in the country. Surrounded by dramatic cliffs, and home of the famous black basalt beach.

Húsavík was the first place settled by the Norse when they arrived in 870 AD. The pretty fishing village is mainly known for the many whales that live in the surrounding waters.


The Blue Lagoon is one of Iceland’s most famous postcards, but the prohibitive price tag and popularity of the geothermal baths has led more adventurous travellers to look for alternatives like the Secret Lagoon.
