South Region travel guide

Waterfalls · Hot Springs · Beaches
Home to some of the country's most striking scenery and richest history, it is no surprise that Iceland's South Region ranks as one of its popular tourist destinations. The centers of medieval power and picturesque rural areas are a big draw, but few sights can complete with the region's national park. Its waterfalls, glaciers, and geological wonders have served as the dramatic setting for some of Iceland's best known sagas. Make sure to sample some local ingredients from the region, as the western part of South Iceland is considered its agricultural heartland, with especially good dairy products.
