Then we will visit another incredible waterfall: Kvernufoss, this one is less crowded than Skógafoss, probably because there is a hike to about 15 minutes to get there. This spectacular waterfall has created a cave behind of it, so it will also give us some unforgettable postcards.
After making the most of the morning in the area, we will continue to the east, we will visit the most famous black sand beach - Reynisfjara. Not for nothing is the most famous, because it is located next to a mountain with stones basalts, lava formations, cliffs and caves.

We will take pictures of the sunset in another of the most beautiful places, Diamond Beach in which these ices are found that seem diamonds, what happens is that from the Jokulsarlon glacier, they break off pieces of ice that fall into the glacier lagoon and finally move out to sea, where they are polished by the waves of the North Atlantic. It is one more place that offers infinite photographic possibilities!

After taking our sunrise photographs, we will start a trip in road heading west again towards the magnificent Gullfoss waterfalls. We will make a stop at the incredible canyon of Fjaðrárgljúfur, a deep canyon full of green that was created thanks to the erosion produced by the water that came down from the glaciers. Today this process has not finished and in its depths we can still see traces of how the landscape is building little by little.
