Gullfoss - Frosen waterfall
Gullfoss - Frosen waterfall Gullfoss is in the river Hvítá (engl. white river), which has its origin in the glacier lake Hvítávatn (engl. white river lake) at Lángjökull glacier about 40km north of Gullfoss. Glacial water is brownish, since it carries lots of sediments that the glacial ice has carved off the earth. Gullfoss is called the "Golden Falls", since on a sunny day the water plunging down the three step staircase and then tumbeling in two steps down into the 32 m deep crevice truly looks golden.
Silicon Fumarole in the Highlands of Iceland
Silicon Fumarole in the Highlands of Iceland Hveravellir (Hot Spring Fields.) is an interesting geothermal area in the central highlands of Iceland. It is one of the pearls of Iceland, a nature reserve 650 meters above sea-level. After driving through the vast, barren highlands it is so lovely to encounter such an oasis. There was an old route through this area, which is referred to in the Viking Sagas with the first references being from around year 900. This road is called Kjalvegur road. There is a geothermal area here, which has been called the most beautiful geothermal area in Iceland. Here is also a lovely hot pool in which one can bathe. It is awesome sitting in this hot pool in the wilderness of Iceland, in between two of Iceland's glaciers, Langjökull and Hofsjökull glaciers.

Northern Lights in #Iceland
Northern Lights in #Iceland The bright dancing lights of the #aurora are actually collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun that enter the earth's atmosphere. The lights are seen above the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemispheres. They are known as 'Aurora borealis' in the north and 'Aurora australis' in the south.. Auroral displays appear in many colours although pale green and pink are the most common. Shades of red, yellow, green, blue, and violet have been reported. The lights appear in many forms from patches or scattered clouds of light to streamers, arcs, rippling curtains or shooting rays that light up the sky with an eerie glow.

View at Hengill Volcano
View at Hengill Volcano Hengill volcano is situated in the southwest of Iceland, to the south of Þingvellir. The volcano covers an area of about 100 km². The volcano is still active, evidenced by its numerous hot springs and fumaroles, but the last eruption occurred approximately 2,000 years ago. The volcano is an important source of energy for the south of the country, which is captured at the Nesjavellir power station and the Hellisheiði power station (approximately 11 km southwest of Nesjavellir). The area with its mountains and hot springs is well suited for hiking and there are a lot of hiking trails. The small town of Hveragerði with its multitude of hot springs is also part of the Hengill area.

Sveifluháls mountain ridge seen from Háuhnúkar- Reykjanes pen
Sveifluháls mountain ridge seen from Háuhnúkar- Reykjanes pen Sveifluháls is one of the largest multi-summit hyaloclastite ridges in the Geopark A lava flow formed it in a eruption in the year 1151 AD. In that year a 25 km long fissure opened obliquely across the Reykjanes peninsula. It is interesting for its variety of hyaloclastite formations; layered tuff, breccia and pillow lava. The rocks bear witness to interaction between magma, glacier ice and water. Sveifluháls or Austurháls is 395 m high palagonite rigg in Reykjanesfjallgarð, west of Kleifarvatn. Steep hammers are down to Kleifarvatn. On the south and east site of the neck are high geothermal areas mainly at Krísuvík. The highest peaks at Sveifluháls are Hellutindar, Stapatindar og Miðdegishnúkar.
