The Golden Circle
The trip around "The Golden Circle" is an Icelandic classic where you get to experience some of the countrie's most famous attractions all in one day. Explore the natural phenomenon like the hot springs at Geysir, and the mighty waterfall Gullfoss.
Our first stop is Gullfoss, "the golden waterfall", which is by many judged as the most beautiful in Iceland. The waterfall has two stages, and it's possible to get close up to the mighty water cascading over the ledges into the ravine below.
The UNESCO world heritage site of Thingvellir national park is our next stop. The world’s oldest parliament, Alltinget, was assembled here as early as around year 900, and this is also where the European and American continental plates meet. At Thingvellir the escarpment that is caused by the two plates slowly parting can be seen very clearly. After this visit we return to Reykjavík.
