If you wish to add a volcano to your list of sights, walk up to Hekla Mountain (by bus or 4 X 4). The last time this volcano, the most famous in the island, erupted was in 1991. Destroyed and chaotic, the landscape you will see will take your breath away. Not far from the volcano, some 12 miles eastward is the Landmannalaugar Region with its varied and authentic landscapes, one of the excellent areas in the island for hiking.
