Due to the breathtaking view from the headland and rich birdlife Dyrhólaey is a very popular destination on the south coast of Iceland. From the cape you have view on a good day out to Westman Island and even Surtsey in the south and over towards Eyjafjallajökull in the west and Mýrdalsjökull in the North. On the east side you have Reynisfjara black sand beach, Mt. Reynisfjall and Reynisdrangar.
Eyjafjallajokull is located north of Skogar, and to the west of Myrdalsjokull glacier and the massive volcano there; Katla, at the borders of the South Icelandic highlands. Two glacier outlets ( crawling glaciers ) fall from Eyjafjallajökull to the north, down to the plain.The front one (western) Gígjökull or Falljökull and the inner one is called Steinsholtsjökul
The Reynisdrangar sea stacks are home to thousands of nesting seabirds as well as the cliffs near by. The summer air is filled with wings flapping and birds flying out at see to fish for their young ones. Species that can be found here include Puffins, Arctic tern, Fulmars, Seagulls and Guillemots, making it a interesting location for all birdwatchers out there.
At Iceland’s southernmost point, the black sand beach at Reynisfjara is one of the most beautiful beaches in Iceland. With its enormous basalt stacks, roaring Atlantic waves, flying puffins and stunning panoramas, Black Beach is widely considered to be the most beautiful example of Iceland’s black sand beaches
The waterfall Seljalandsfoss on the south coast of Iceland is probably one of Icelands best known waterfalls and only the great Gullfoss waterfall is possibly more frequently visited. This is because the waterfall is one of only few waterfalls in iceland that you can walk behind.
Skogafoss waterfall situated on the Skoga River in the south of Iceland, is one of the biggest waterfalls in the country with a width of 25 metres (82 feet) and a drop of 62 m (203 ft) of the cliffs of the former coastline. It is the last in row of waterfalls that stem from the passage of Fimvorduhals that erupted in march 2010.
Snæfellsjokull is a part of the Snæfellsjokull National Park which was established on June 28, 2001. The top of Snæfellsjokull glacier is at 1446m above sea level.
