Svartifoss, also known as Dark Fall, is surrounded by dark lava. Cruise through the serene mountains of Landmannalaguar. Reynisfjara Beach's dramatic cliff and basalt columns make this black beach a real crown jewel. Stand behind Seljalandsfoss to see miles of lush landscape and likely a few rainbows. Reykjavik is the home of the famous Hallgrimskirkja designed to resemble flowing lava. Mount Kirkjufell is your best bet at seeing the northern lights.
