The Diamond Circle

The Diamond Circle is a unique circle around some of the more beautiful landscapes in Northeast Iceland. From the whale watching capital of Europe, Húsavík, it goes to the Vatnajökull National Park with Ásbyrgi, Hljóðaklettar and the most powerful waterfall of Europe, Dettifoss. From Dettifoss the the road leads to Mývatn which is unique in geological sense along with its unique fauna known worldwide. From Mývatn the road leads back to Húsavík through the countryside. These places mentioned here above are the main Diamonds but along the road are numerous other smaller Diamonds such as Goðafoss waterfall, Æðarfossar waterfall, Krafla and the turf houses in Grenjaðarstaður to mention a few.
