In Iceland, each region has its own charm a long list of unusual or unusually beautiful sites.
Some regions, such as the south and the west, which remain accessible in winter, are very popular for short stays because you can get there all year round. The highlands (Center) is a favourite of hiking enthusiasts, and those who enjoy the challenge of off-road 4x4 vehicles can rent one to explore the most remote and spectacular sites.
The Northwest and the East are the fjord regions, almost completely untamed aside a few quaint little fishing ports. The Northwest is very isolated from the rest of the island, way off the beaten track of Road number 1. Finally, the north, is the region of Myvatn, the most visited lake in Iceland with its incredible surroundings.
