In Vatnajökull National Park, another natural marvel, admire jaw-dropping Dettifoss, Iceland’s “Niagara.” Stop at stunning Godafoss, “waterfall of the gods.” At a folk museum, encounter Iceland’s past, then see famed Icelandic horses at a farm. Experience the Snaefellsnes Peninsula’s stupendous scenery – its vast lava field and bizarre rock formations. Thingvellir National Park offers fascinating historical insights.
