This trip is perfect for those keen to explore Iceland's beautiful Golden Circle in an afternoon.
Throughout your Golden Circle tour, you'll get to witness the inspiring and beautiful landscapes of the picturesque nature: rolling farmlands, distant mountain tops, trickling rivers and stunning valleys. Keep your camera at the ready not to a miss a snap along this beautiful trail in Iceland's nature.
Your first destination on this trip is the incredible Geysir geothermal area, a natural spectacle unique to the nature of Iceland. The area is made up of deep bubbling mud pools and towering spouting hot springs, the most famous of which are Geysir and Strokkur. The former no longer erupts, but the latter is a mighty one, erupting every 4-8 minutes and reaching on average 15-20 m (65 ft) into the air; sometimes it will reach the incredible height of 40 m (131 ft). Keep your finger on your camera shutter as you stand around the edges of Strokkur, to catch the perfect shot of its incredible eruptions.
Next, you'll visit the mighty Gullfoss waterfall, on the famous rafting river Hvitá. It plummets 32 m (104 ft) into the river gorge and you can get close enough to feel the water spray on your face. This is Iceland's most famous waterfall and definitely one of the most beautiful. Nothing can quite describe the roar that comes with such a thunderous cascade, and if you're lucky enough, you may also catch a glimpse of a rainbow.
Your final stop on the tour will be the richly diverse Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site situated on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Here, you will walk between the continents of Europe and America. Þingvellir was also the founding site for Iceland's national parliament (Alþingi), the first of its kind, in 930 AD. Of particular interest is the impressive Almannagjá canyon, marking the eastern boundary of the North American tectonic plate.
