Description

The Golden Circle is Iceland's most popular day trip, for good reason. You see the one and only original Geysir. Having Gullfoss waterfall in front of you is worth a day trip on its own. Þingvellir is a National Park, nature reserve, UNESCO World Heritage site, and split by the Mid-Atlantic Rift. With the super jeeps, you also add the huge Langjökull glacier to your list of impressions. Start the day in Þingvellir, where the Parliament of Iceland was founded in 930. There, you will have a view from 'the edge of America' over the Mid-Atlantic continental divide. Continuing on, you will pass the geothermal heated Laugarvatn lake before arriving at the Great Geysir hot spring area, peppered with small and large boiling water springs. The most spectacular one, Strokkur, blasts boiling water up to 30 meters skywards, up to 3 times in a minute. After quality time at Geysir, a short drive takes you to Gullfoss waterfall, where glacier melt water thunders in two stages into a 70 meter deep basalt canyon. Manoeuvre a gravel track, snaking up mountains towards Europe’s second largest glacier, Langjökull. There, a snowmobile ride is optional if pre-booked, of course dependent on weather, conditions, and time of year. In the afternoon, descend again and traverse the South Iceland agricultural heartland on our way home to Reykjavik.
