Iceland Golden Circle and the South
Here is where real wilderness can be seen as you travel along the south shore of Iceland with its many waterfalls, (one of which you can walk behind), black sandy beaches, awe-inspiring mountain ranges and strange lava formations. A sight to behold is the Solheimajokull glacier tongue extending down from its mother glacier, Myrdalsjokull, Iceland's fourth largest. The Myrdalsjokull (1480m) has an area of about 590 km² and rests on a volcanically active massif mountain, which last erupted very powerfully in 1918.
Quite a few glacier snouts flow down onto the lower lying areas and discharge a great volume of water. Just west of this glacier is another much smaller volcano but now due to its last eruption in 2010, the very famous Eyjafjallajokull.
Best time to be there
June to September is a great time to enjoy a mild ocean climate thanks to the Gulf Stream. It is relatively mild in winter and cool in summer but this is when you can enjoy almost 24 hours of daylight. The weather can change several times during the day. In midwinter, whilst there is little daylight, it is one of the best times to see the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis).
