The Golden Circle Tour takes you on a wondrous circular journey through the heart of Iceland’s southern Region, stopping at some of Iceland’s most iconic sites. The Thingvellir National Park, Geysir Geothermal area and Gullfoss Waterfall have their own stories to tell. You’ll have a day full of memories you won’t forget.
The first stop during the Golden Circle tour is Thingvellir National Park, a place of great historical, geological, and cultural significance. Thingvellir is located in a rift valley where the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates meet. The UNESCO designated world heritage site is also the birthplace of the Althing—Iceland’s parliament founded in 930 AD—where the nation’s most powerful leaders would meet to decide on legislation and carry out brutal Viking-age justice.
Next, visit Gullfoss (Golden Falls). Gullfoss waterfall gets its name from the golden color of its water as it churns up silt and sediment. The magnificent waterfalls lie in the Hvita river and are fed by Langjokull, Iceland’s second-largest glacier.
The last stop on the Golden Circle Iceland is Geysir geothermal area, the scenic home of the famous Geysir hot spring. Geysir doesn’t erupt often but is surrounded by bubbling cauldrons of superheated mud, steaming pools and Strokkur, a geyser that erupts every 6-10 minutes. The smells, colors, and eruptions at this popular destination are a window into all the geothermal activity happening beneath Iceland.
