South Iceland - What to See & Do - Part 1/3
I often get emails from people asking for informative tips what to see & do while road tripping around South Iceland. The South coast is a popular route to drive throughout the year and I always recommend this area for travelers who only have a few days in Iceland
So I decided to make a three part post about South Iceland, from Reykjavik to Jökulsárlón. This is part 1 and I share my knowledge about e.g. Þingvellir national park, Gullfoss waterfall, Geysir hotspring, Kerið volcano crater, Laugarvatn Geothermal baths and more.

If I only had one day in Reykjavík, Iceland I would…
What should I do if I only had one day in Iceland? Tiny Iceland would do this; Starting the day at a local coffee house is great.
