Hello everyone,
Can you please tell me which are the best places to travel in Iceland?
I am planning to go to Iceland at the end of this month.

'Best' is always a matter of personal preference.

If you're visiting at the end of November daylight hourswill be limited. The sun won't rise until about 1030 and will set around 4pm. If the skies are clear you may be able to see the Northern Lights.

Reykjavik is a lovely city to explore on foot. It's safe to walk around, has lots of historical and architectural interest and plenty of interesting cafes, bars and restaurants. There are many organised daytours available.

Many visitors take the 'Golden Circle' tour around the south of the island, visiting stunning landscapes: Thingvellir National Park (where you can see the 'continental divide'), Gulfoss waterfall and the Geysir geothermal area.

The 'Blue Lagoon' geothermal seawater spa near Reykjavik is also very popular.

The Snaefellsnes peninsula has dramatic landscapes, glaciers, volcanoes.....

The official Iceland Tourist Information website has lots of information:

and the 'Guide to Iceland' website has excellent information about tour options:
