Iceland's incredible beauty is world-renowned; everywhere you look you are likely to see an otherworldly vista and the country is the perfect place for some eco-therapy.
It was an almost impossible task, but we've narrowed down ten of the most beautiful natural sights in Iceland to get you inspired.
This 62m-high waterfall topples over a rocky cliff at the western edge of Skógar in dramatic style.
Climb the steep staircase alongside for giddy views, or walk to the foot of the falls, shrouded in mist and rainbows. Legend has it that a settler named Þrasi hid a chest of gold behind Skógafoss.
The black-sand beach Reynisfjara near Vík is backed by an incredible stack of basalt columns that look like a magical church organ, and there are outstanding views west to Dyrhólaey.
Surrounding cliffs are pocked with caves formed from twisted basalt, and puffins belly-flop into the crashing sea during summer. Immediately offshore are the towering Reynisdrangur sea stacks.
With beauty comes dangerous rough waves; people are regularly swept away on this beach.
Named after the Norse god Thor (Þór), this protected reserve is a hiker's paradise, with scenes seemingly plucked from an enchanting fantasy.
The verdant realm is clasped by mountain ridges, valleys, icy rivers and three glaciers (Tindfjallajökull, Eyjafjallajökull and Mýrdalsjökull), protecting it from some of the region's harsher weather.
Earthquakes can stimulate activity, though eruptions are rare. Luckily for visitors, the very reliable geyser, Strokkur, sits alongside it.
