TOP Destinations: Southwest Iceland & Golden Circle

Ready to pack and leave town? All right, let's get on the road!

We'll start in Southwest Iceland and move progressively to East in a counterclockwise direction. First we'll go through a circuit named Golden Circle, still not far from Reykjavík, where several major attractions wait us. These include a national park of great historical and geological importance, Geysir hot springs, including the original Geysir which named all other geysers around the world and the powerful two-tier Gullfoss waterfall.

After the rather unique Blue Lagoon with its bright and quite surreal blue colors, two more imposing waterfalls are on our way: Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. Besides, in this area the trails surrounding them invite us to feel the mountains more closely as we test our legs through steep climbs to discover more sights.

We'll also feel the ocean touching the black sand beaches surrounding Vík and wonder in front of immense moss covered lava fields in scenes that seem to come directly from a fantasy movie.

Experience all this in this week's new album at ce-top-photography.com/p1036196610 and be ready to go on with our journey next week.

Cheers!
