• Reykjavík City is the capital of Iceland. Þingvellir is where the old parliament was located. It is now a national park with some magnificent views. Geysir is a hot water spring, and it blows occasionally. Much more alive is its fellow 'hot-water-spring' named Strokkur. One can always count on Strokkur to give some fancy shows if you wait ca. 5-20 minutes (depends on the weather). Gullfoss is a "two-storey-high" waterfall about 10km from Geysir. The view there is magnificent. Flúðir is a small town in the southern part of the country, not very far from Gullfoss and Geysir, and is famous for it's mushrooms. Hveragerði is also a small town in the southern part of the country about 45km away from Reykjavík. In Hveragerði there are many greenhouses powered by the hot water from the earth. Bláa Lónið (blue lagoon) is a pool of water that is located on the south-western corner of the country. It is a bluish pool (hence the name) which contains some stuff that psoriasis-patients find great to rub and smear on their body. Others find the lake or pool a great place to relax. The temperature of the lake ranges from warm to hot, and there are places in the water where no-one should go to as the temperature gets too high there and can cause a severe burns. (
