When you are driving the roads in Iceland, you can't avoid the feeling that you are on a long scenic journey. In your travels you often come across a place in the landscape that is not a natual wonder or popular tourist attraction, yet it just urges you to stop and take in the beauty before you. One such place is the Fossálar Waterfall just off Route 1 in the south.
Image of the iconic Statue of Liberty during stormy times. On Lady Liberty her inscription reads “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
Dyrhólaey Lighthouse is a wonderful "Castle Shaped" lighthouse on the south coast of Iceland, near Vík í Mýrdal. From the lighthouse you have spectacular views in every direction. The Atlantic Ocean and the Dyrhólaey Rock to the South, the beautiful black lava Reynisdrangar Seastacks to the East, an endless black coastline to the West, and the Mýrdalsjökull Glacier to the North. A location well worth visiting.
