Iceland - North Iceland (Chapter)
This is the North Iceland chapter from Lonely Planet’s Iceland guidebook.
Iceland’s mammoth and magnificent north is a geologist’s heaven. A wonderland of moonlike lava fields, belching mudpots, epic waterfalls, snowcapped peaks and whale-filled bays – this is Iceland at its best. The region’s top sights are variations on one theme: a grumbling, volcanically active earth.
- hold your breath as gentle giants emerge from the deep on a whale-watching trip from Húsavík
- step gingerly through the rust-coloured world at Hverir, then crunch shattered lava underfoot at Krafla
- savour thundering chutes, hypnotic rock forms and a storied canyon at Jökulsárgljúfur
- restaurants & accommodation
