While some may have heard of Southern Iceland’s Golden Circle, since last month, a new circle tour has become available in North Iceland: the brand-new Diamond Circle!
This new route takes visitors to the most incredible spots in Northern Iceland, including waterfalls, hot springs, lakes and picturesque towns. It was opened on September 6, 2020, with new built roads connecting the sites together.
The route connects spectacular sites such as Goðafoss waterfall, Mývatn lake, Dettifoss waterfall, Ásbyrgi canyon, and the town of Húsavík. Visitors will marvel over the moonlike blue and green landscapes of Lake Mývatn, the impressive energy of Dettifoss – the most powerful waterfall in Europe, the crescent-shaped wonder of Ásbyrgi canyon and Húsavík – the buzzing whale capital of Iceland.
Exploring the Diamond Circle allows visitors to leave the well-travelled routes and go off the beaten track to discover some of the more remote wonders of Iceland stopping along the way to take in the sights. The length of the road is around 250km, meaning it can be done in 1 or 2 days.
Visitors can meet several exhibitors from Iceland at this year’s ITB Asia 2020 Virtual.
