Iceland’s south coast is home to some of the country’s most visited tourist attractions. The coastline itself is renowned for its beauty, and the towns along the coast are famous for their fresh seafood.
From wonderful waterfalls, to great glaciers, the South has it all. With the Golden Circle route, connecting Þingvellir National Park, Gullfoss and Geysir, located in the area, it is a very popular destination for visitors. Further east along the shore, you will find Skógafoss Waterfall, Jökulsárlón Glacial Lagoon, Vatnajökull National Park and several other natural wonders.
The south is rich in history and culture. Events from the sagas are remembered in many ways along the coast, and several museums in the area celebrate icelandic customs and heritage.
