Tourist information and destination rating

Category: Region, Local time: 19:12:02, Official WWW website:

South Iceland, a region whose central part is spread around Akureyri, 100 km / 63 mi to the south-west from Reykjavík. It is very popular among tourists mainly due its historic and natural sites such as Þingvellir National Park, which is a UNESCO Site, or the old episcopal seat of Skálholt, which was the centre of the church and Christianity in Iceland from the mid-11th century until the end of the 18th century, and other attractions e.g. Gullfoss (Golden Falls) , geothermal areas villages with exotic fruits and vegetables grown in greenhouses heated by hot springs (geysers) , active volcanoes such as Mt. Hekla, which has erupted about 20 times in Icelandic history, and Mt. Katla, under the Mýrdalsjökull glacier, which is almost as active. Furthermore, there are lots of attractive museums, for example, the Skógar Museum, one of Iceland’s leading folk museums; and Draugasetrið, the Ghost Centre at Stokkseyri, a unique museum dedicated to the phenomenon of the Icelandic ghost. Tourists are offered various programmes, events and activities, such as sightseeing cruises among the ice floes on the Breiðamerkurjökull glacial lagoon, and trips up onto the glacier, horseback riding or white-water rafting.
