Iceland is a visual treat. Think geysers, waterfalls, fjords, volcanoes, and glacial lagoons. If you only have a couple of days, make the effort to get out of Reykjavik. Visit Geysir and Gulfoss and then head another two hours east to Jokulsarlon. You will NOT be disappointed. Watch waves wash broken icebergs ashore as they crash on a black-sand beach; take a 30-minute boat trip to the foot of the glacier, dodging icebergs on the way; try not to scare away the seals atop floating ice as they bask in the sun's rays; and see what 3,000-year-old ice tastes like as you sample it on your boat ride back to shore.
Boat rides depart regularly from the main entrance at Jokulsarlon. Warm up with a hot chocolate from the canteen afterwards and bring an extra memory card...it may take a few shots to capture the perfect Jack & Rose pose.
