Full description
The Golden Circle is one of the most popular routes in Iceland and well worth visiting. The sights on this tour include Thingvellir national park, where the foundation of the Icelandic parliament began in 930 A.D. It is a site of geological wonders, as it lies in a rift valley marking the crest of the Mid-Atlantic ridge. The rift is clearly visible and the movement of the tectonic plates pulls apart the island about 2.5 centimeters every year. Thingvellir is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The mighty Geysir is a dormant hot spring, but Strokkur erupts about every 4-10 minutes, sprouting the hot water 15 to 20 meters high and sometimes up to 40 meters. Gullfoss, or the "Golden falls", comes from the glacier river Hvitá. As you first approach the falls, the crevice is obscured from view so that it appears that a mighty river simply vanishes into the earth.

Take the opportunity to get your adrenaline pumping, as you drive gravel roads and tracks, not accessible for regular cars. What better way to add diversity to your day?
