As Disney’s Frozen 2 hit the cinemas, moviegoers are treated with awe-inspiring Icelandic landscape. Travellers can review the magical landscapes across Iceland’s regions which helped encourage the enthusiastically awaited new adventures of Elsa, Anna, Olaf, Kristoff and Sven.
From geysers and black-sand beaches to volcanoes and cascading waterfalls, film fans can go along in the footsteps of Disney’s filmmakers who visited Iceland’s magical landscapes to be encouraged for the latest Frozen film.
Below are the marvellous Iceland sites that inspired the film:
Situated on the South Coast of Iceland, Reynisfjara is nominated one of the most beautiful black-sand beaches on the planet. Travellers can engage themselves in the sound of the roaring Atlantic waves while being surrounded by enormous basalt rocks.
Tourists can arrive into the huge and vibrant magma chamber of a dormant volcano, the only one in the world that is feasible to visit.
Svínafellsjökull glacier and Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon
Both Svínafellsjökull glacier and Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon are a portion of the Vatnajökull glacier, the biggest glacier in Europe.
Þingvellir National Park
Þingvellir National Park was chosen a World Heritage site by UNESCO in 2004. When Viking immigrants entered in the 10th century it was the location they chose as the meeting place of Alþingi, the globe’s oldest parliament. Picture-perfect for nature lovers, visitors can walk in between continental plates and see gorgeous nature rich in colours changing with seasons.
Translated to ‘Golden Falls’, Gullfoss is one of Iceland’s most iconic and much-loved waterfalls, discovered in the Hvítá river canyon in south-west Iceland. The water in Hvítá river goes from the glacier Langjökull, before falling 32 meters down Gullfoss’ two stages in a remarkable display of nature’s raw power.
Recognized as the most active sprouting hot spring in South Iceland, the Strokkur geyser puts up a wonderful show for tourists every four to ten minutes blasting water to heights of around fifteen to twenty metres.
