Iceland is a landlocked country of only 7,000 people, which is divided into two countries: Þingvellir, a country on the island of Iceland and the westernmost of the country; and Vatnajökull, a more southern part of the island.
Iceland has the highest concentration of sea ice in the world, but it also has a unique landscape that’s both breathtaking and challenging.
From its lush forests to the snowy peaks of the north, the Seven Mountains are a sight to behold.
A few of the best ways to explore Iceland’s Seven Magic MountainsThe Seven Magic Mountain rangeThe Seven Mountains of Iceland (Photo: Wikimedia Commons)The Seven Great Mountains of the Iceland (Photos: Wikimedia)The North Sea has its own Seven Magic, which stretches from the mouth of the Bay of Biscay to the tip of Iceland’s South Coast.
In the southernmost part of Iceland, the North Atlantic Ocean separates the mainland from the South Sea, and the two are often referred to as the North Iceland and South Iceland.
The Seven Iceland mountains, which are the largest in the whole world, range from 4,500m to 6,300m (12,300-17,000ft) high.
The highest of these peaks is the Möllerkrengur, which towers over the capital of Reykjavik.
Located at the mouth to the Atlantic Ocean, the area has long been a favourite spot for tourists to visit, as it’s where the sea meets the ocean.
The area is also home to many other sights including the largest waterfall in the land, the Gílafellsjökuljö waterfall.
If you’re looking to visit the Seven Mountain range, head straight for Keflavík.
Located at the northernmost tip of the South Coast, the town of Keflovík is the largest town in Iceland.
Keflavík has a very different feel from most of the rest of the towns and villages in the North, where it’s a quiet community where people walk around the city and enjoy the local cuisine.
There are plenty of great places to visit in the area, and we recommend heading to the area for a visit with a group of friends or family.
