Most of Iceland is a rough and uninhabited terrain, a desolate desert of mountains, lava, sand and lakes. There are also several glaciers, such as Vatnajökull Glacier, which is the largest in Europe.
Central Iceland (The Highland)
Somewhere in the highlands of Iceland, north of the Vatnajökull glacier, is a special place where astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins, once trained for moon landing. Iceland has a special place where ordinary people can walk in the paths of giants.
Lónsöræfi is a Nature Reserve in southeast Iceland, located at the eastern end of the Vatnajökull glacier. This area is characterized by diverse geological formations that are the result of the Kollumúlaeldstöðvar volcano's activity, about a million to 5 million years ago.
Sprengisandur is located on the mainland that stretches from Hofsjökull glacier, in the center of the island, and Vatnajökull glacier, Europe's largest glacier, located in the east of the island. This is a fascinating area of hilly wasteland, sand and lava fields.
Laki craters are a wonderful result of the tremendous devastation that occurred in Iceland in the 18th century. A global catastrophe that killed thousands of people, animals, destroyed much property and was felt almost everywhere.
One of the most beautiful regions in central Iceland is undoubtedly Landmannalaugar Mountain Reserve. The name means "The People's Pools", this is probably the most popular travel destination in central Iceland and is otherwise known as the jewel in the crown.
