There are a numerous important aspects that need to be taken into account with each of the location types mentioned above. Every location has their own magic in the elements. Which is why it is important to be correctly prepared. We highly recommend splurging on a nice pair of hiking boots before visiting Iceland. Pro tip: Make sure you wear them in a bit before you come to avoid getting sore feet or blisters.
A few of the things you need to keep in mind when picking a location are the terrain and your gear/apparel. Is the terrain mostly gravel, is it mostly flat, is there a possibility of snow or ice? For instance a lot of waterfall locations have a fairly wet surrounding depending on how close you are to the waterfall and the wind directions. During the winter time you might even need to wear crampons at this locations. Make sure not to disrupt any the delicate vegetation. Please use your best discretion. Another thing to keep in mind is does your desired location require you to hike before discovering the majestic scenery you seek?
