It is also where the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates meet above ground. Then it's on to the Strokkur Geysir, which erupts every 10 minutes. Stop at Gullfoss Waterfall, one of the most popular tourist attractions in all of Iceland with two separate drops and the largest falls in all of Europe in terms of water volume. Enjoy a tasty light lunch in the greenhouse of Fridheimar Tomato Farm. Journey to the Secret Lagoon: smaller and more intimate than the Blue Lagoon, it's where savvy travelers go to enjoy the Icelandic spa experience.
