Explore some of Iceland's most popular sights, soak in a natural hot spring and hunt for the Northern Lights.
The golden circle combines 3 of Iceland’s most popular sights:
Þingvellir – The national park
Þingvellir is an area of tremendous historical importance for Iceland. It’s where the first parliament was established in 930 AD. Not only is it a scenic beauty but you’ll be exploring one of the longest-running political establishments in Europe.
We’re not finished! Because of the geographical location of Þingvellir, it is possible to walk from the North American to the European tectonic plate. Talk about a bucket list item!
Geyser is arguably the most famous hot spring in Iceland. There’s not a whole lot of action these days but Strokkur (right next to it) erupts every 5-8 minutes or so. Make sure to have your camera ready to catch that amazing natural phenomenon.
The golden waterfall is in the canyon of Hvítá and nothing short of a spectacular scenic view. When the weather conditions are safe, you can even walk all the way down to the waterfall.
Bonus stop to the Golden Circle:
Have you heard that Iceland is famous for using geothermal energy? Well, Friðheimar Tomato Farm is a prime example of that. We will walk through the greenhouse and enjoy the wonderful local dishes. Please note that the lunch is not included in the price.
We can’t get enough of geothermal attractions! The next stop is to the Secret Lagoon to enjoy a relaxing swim in geothermal water. It's not only one of the oldest swimming pools in the country, it has a constant temperature of 38/40 °C, thanks to the high geothermal activity in the area.
To see the Northern Lights dancing on the Icelandic night sky is truly an experience that will last a lifetime.
