Many of the beautiful places in my area, are in around the so-called “Diamond Circle“. The Diamond Circle can be done in a day. It can also be done in a month, or a lifetime 🙂
Here is a video I recorded with me drone, showing Hljóðaklettar and Rauðhólar (red hills). It’s on the “Diamond Circle”:
1 day spent visiting the locations in and around the Diamond Circle, means that it will mostly be driving, with short stops.
- I would recommend a whole day just for the Lake MÝVATN area, then another day for DETTIFOSS, HLJÓÐAKLETTAR and ÁSBYRGI
- A third day can be spend visiting ALDEYJARFOSS, and GOÐAFOSS, and doing a WHALE WATCHING in HÚSAVÍK. The town of Husavik is well known now for starring in the Will Ferrell Movie “The Story of Fire Saga” 🙂
= 3-4 days allow you to cover most of the things to see and do in the area.
Note that if you have only 1 day to spend in the Northern Iceland, and if it’s between Early July and early September, then a Day tour to ASKJA is the probably the most amazing thing for you to do, but also the most expensive.
What I have to offer is also the opportunity to get to special places, guaranteed to be without other people, other tourists. That can also be amazing experience and I recommend it highly.
Just send me an email and together we will find out hot to make your visit very enjoyable and memorable.
