The scenic 260 km long ring road, the DIAMOND CIRCLE, offers many of the most interesting and beautiful places in Iceland. Husavik starts this spectacular round trip journey, which passes by the stunning Dettifoss waterfall and the gorgeous lake "Myvatn", before returning to Husavik.
Along the way, travelers encounter the Dark Castles, "Nama-fjall" Geysers, the Crater of Hell, the Blue Lagoon of the North, the volcanic "Krafla", the Waterfall of Gods, "Asbyrgi" canyon, "Jokulsargljufur Canyon" National Park, the fossils and birds of Tjornes, six interesting museums and the ghost valleys of the north. The Diamond Ring Road is stepped in history and every hill offers a surprising new view.
We can recommend at least four days to fully enjoy the DIAMOND CIRCLE. Spend one day in the lake Myvatn area. Together, the "National Park of Jokulsargljufur" canyon and the Dettifoss area, deserve at least one day. Reserve one more day to drive the Diamond Ring Road and visit all the small interesting places. Finally, don't miss our beautiful Husavik. Go whale watching, sea angling or hunting. Many activities are within easy reach, including golfing, bird watching and free fishing in the lakes. A swimming pool and natural warm bath are nearby. You can also visit Husavik's museums and restaurants or take a refreshing walk around the lakes or up to the hills.
