Our Neighbourhood

 
From Tunga you can easily reach many of the major tourist sites in southern Iceland. Driving a regular car you can reach Gullfoss (96 km) the most visited waterfall in Island, the geothermal area Geysir (90 km), Thingvellir national park (94 km), which is listed as  a UNESCO World Heritage Site both for its history and geography.

Closer by are two beautiful waterfalls Skogafoss and Seljalandsfoss (35 and 50 km) and Landeyjahöfn where you can catch the ferry to the Westman Islands (an hour by boat). 

Further afield but highly recomended is the glacial lagoon Jokulsarlon (273 km) and Landmannalaugar (127 km - will need a four wheel drive). The hot water spa The Blue Lagoon is 139 km away, but it is close to the airport so you might want to visit there on your way to or from the airport.
