Must-sees are also Lake Myvatn and its hot springs, the volcano with the unpronounceable name of Thríhnjúkagígur, where you can descend into its crater; without forgetting the Great Geysir for an astonishing show every 5 to 8 minutes. Don't forget to take your campervan to the Vatnajökull National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2019. It is not surprising that the World Economic Forum declared Iceland to be the most peaceful and friendly country to visit in the world, given the many beautiful sights to discover.
