Iceland - Southwest Iceland & the Golden Circle (Chapter)
This is the Southwest Iceland & the Golden Circle chapter from Lonely Planet’s Iceland guidebook.
Black beaches stretch along the Atlantic, geysers spout from geothermal fields, and waterfalls glide across escarpments while brooding volcanoes and glittering ice caps score the inland horizon. The beautiful southwest has many of Iceland’s most legendary natural wonders, and the further you go the better it gets.
- wait for water to shoot skywards at Geysir or watch it tumble down at Gulfoss
