The Grjótagjá Cave in Lake Mývatn of Iceland was once the home of outlaw Jón Markússon in the early 1700's. This lava cave and hot spring with its ethereal otherworldly beauty also played host to the Game of Thrones love scene between Jon Snow and the wildling woman Ygritte, where Jon Snow ‘proves’ his abandonment of the Night’s Watch by consummating their relationship.
Located on the outskirts of Kirkjubæjarklaustur Iceland, flanked by rugged volcanic hills, flows the scenic Stjórnarfoss Waterfall. The falls consist of a cascading river which rumbles 40-feet down an inclined ramp of volcanic rock, followed by a 38-foot drop that plunges over a ledge of basalt rock into a beautiful blue pool.
Seen from almost anywhere in the city, Hallgrímskirkja Church is Reykjavík's main landmark. As impressive as the outside is, the inside features a remarkable pipe organ that stands at an impressive 15m tall, weighs a massive 25 tons, and contains 5275 pipes.
