RS Pr of the day 09.09.2020

Officially opening on 6th September 2020, the Diamond Circle is a new touring route in North Iceland. With newly built roads, the route will allow explorers to visit the circuit’s five key attractions and spectacular landscapes in one loop.

A magnificent 250km circuit in northern Iceland, the Diamond Circle includes some of the picturesque Goðafoss, the moonlike blue and green landscapes of Lake Mývatn, the impressive energy of Dettifoss the most powerful waterfall in Europe, the crescent-shaped wonder of Ásbyrgi canyon and Húsavík the buzzing whale capital of Iceland.


Exploring the Diamond Circle allows visitors to leave the well-travelled routes and go off the beaten track to discover some of the more remote wonders of Iceland stopping along the way to take in the sights. Travellers can decide how long to spend exploring the Diamond Circle from a simple day trip or a longer weekend break to perfect the art of leisurely travel.
