THINGS TO DO in Iceland (beginning of the Ring Road):

Hraunfossar Waterfall – A 900-meter wide waterfall that flows down into a gatorade blue river from the glacier above.

Arnarstapi Cliffs – A beautiful stretch of coastline on the south side of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula. The most famous of the lava-formed coastline is an amazing arch rock formation known as Gatklettur.

Kirkjufellsfoss Waterfall – Stunning waterfall on the Snæfellsnes Peninsula that is one of the most popular Iceland road trip destinations because of the iconic mountain behind the waterfall.

Akureyri – Iceland’s second largest city, and a good base for exploring Northern Iceland.

Eyjafjörður Fjord – Eyjafjörður is the longest fjord in Iceland, and where we based ourselves to see the Northern Lights because of the dark night sky.

  13. Mikeztarp says

    I'm pretty sure "foss" means "waterfall" in Icelandic. So you're going to get a lot of names that end in that. ^^
    (my guess is "fossar" is the plural)

  25. Josh Edwards says

    Loved this travel video Gareth! The platform has become somewhat over-saturated with videos of Iceland that are nothing but pretty visuals over the past year or two…I'm not complaining because a lot of them are STUNNING…but it's really nice to see a travel film with a bit more substance and an actual story being told. Having said that, your drone shots were insane haha! So good man. This is the first video I've watched on your channel and I'm definitely sticking around 🙂 brings back fond memories of my own trip to Iceland last year haha…I remember those Bonus supermarkets well, looking at the prices and thinking 'ohhh…'
