Tagged as one of the most magical places in north Iceland is this Asbyrgi Canyon. This canyon is a gigantic, horseshoe-shaped rock formation. According to Norse mythology, the rock formation of this place was formed by the hoofprint of Sleipnir, Odin’s eight-legged horse. On the other hand, geologists say that the shape has been a result of the massive glacial flooding which occurred when a volcano erupted underneath the Vatnajokull ice cap, thousands of years ago. The bottom of this canyon is pond full of beauty and tranquility, a perfect spot to take a photo with your other half. It’s also said that Asbyrgi is an elf capital, so you better watch what you do as there will be forest fairies around. must visit in iceland

Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis)
How is the Aurora Borealis formed? The Northern Lights are triggered by electrically stimulating particles from the sun smashing into Earth’s magnetic field. This ‘solar wind’ is concentrated down to the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemispheres, forming a horseshoe-shape of green, red, and blue elements that revolve and shape-shift over the Arctic Circle — and they happen continuously. All you need is darkness and cloud-free skies to witness them.
Definitely, one of the best and the most romantic experience to witness in the country. Iceland is on top of the best places in the world to see the northern lights. You can even see them every night if the weather is good. You and your partner will definitely be in awe and you might as well kiss under the northern lights. An experience you’ll never forget. must visit in iceland
