You can start by a drive to Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO world heritage site and one of the geological wonders of the world, where you can see the effects of the tectonic plate movements which have opened various cracks and fissures in the earth’s crust.
You continue to the famous Geysir area where the Strokkur hot spring ejects its water column high into the air every 5–10 minutes and where numerous small springs are boil and bubble. Afterwards you only have a short drive to reach Gullfoss, surely one of the country’s most beautiful waterfalls.
Alternatively, you can spend the day driving along the south coast. Here you’ll find Skógafoss waterfall and Seljalandsfoss waterfall which you can walk behind. At Skógar you will find a folk museum showing how people lived in the past in Iceland. If you have time in the afternoon, you can go to Reynisfjara beach and wander along the black sands.
Your day will end in Reykjavík where you will spend your last night in Iceland.
Now it is time to head back home, after an amazing journey through one of the world’s most picturesque landscapes. You will drive back to Keflavík Airport for your flight back home. Depending on your flight time, you may be able to enjoy your last day strolling around Reykjavík. Or, even better, consider booking an extra night in Reykjavík to really give yourself time to experience all the amazing things Iceland’s capital city has to offer.
