Skógafoss: Due to the amount of spray from the fall, a single or double rainbow is normally visible on sunny days at the 200ft waterfall in Iceland. Popular with film makers, the waterfall was a location for the filming of the Marvel Studios filmThor: The Dark World and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

  • Mount Esja (also called Esjan) is a popular recreational destination found just 6 minutes (10 km) North of Reykjavik. The views from Mount Esja will inspire any photographer, while the volcanic mountain range is beautiful to look at. There are hiking trails to the summits of the Pverfellshorn and Kerholakambur.

2. Golden Circle

road 36,islanda

As a national park (since 1928) because of the special tectonic and volcanic environment. The continental drift can be clearly seen in the cracks or faults which are traversing the region, the biggest one, Almannagjá, being a veritable canyon. This causes also the often measurable earthquakes in the area. Þingvellir is situated on the northern shore of Þingvallavatn, the biggest lake of Iceland. The river Öxará traverses the national park and is forming a waterfall at the Almannagjá, called Öxaráfoss Together with the waterfall Gullfoss and the geysirs of Haukadalur, Þingvellir is part of the most famous sights of Iceland, the Golden Circle.

Almannagjá

You can walk from there down the trail and into Almannagjá, the great fault

Iceland – 1 chuyến đi đầy mong đợi

Người ta thường bảo, giữa tháng 10, là mùa Thu ở đất Pháp đẹp nhất Châu Âu. Nhưng đầu tháng 11 thì hoa đã tàn, mưa nhiều hơn và bắt đầu hạn hẹp nắng.

Paris tháng 12.2013

Người ta cũng bảo đấy là khoảng thời gian Paris bắt đầu tràn ngập màu xám của mùa đông sắp tới nhưng chưa đủ lạnh và có tuyết để mình có thể viên mãn. Vậy nên mình quyết định, nếu đã đặt chân đến Châu Âu, mình sẽ đi đến nơi lạnh nhất

Đó đích thị là ICELAND

Iceland Map

Đất nước cũng là hòn đảo có đầy đủ những thứ tôi thèm muốn

  1. Núi lửa
  2. Tuyết
  3. Vịnh
  4. Suối nước nóng
  5. Biển băng
  6. và tuyệt vời hơn nữa là Northern Light – Ánh sáng Bắc Cực

Sẽ cập nhật mọi người trong chuyến đi sắp tới của mình 😀
