This circular, natural wonder, trip is a top tourist trail, stopping off at waterfalls, the incredible Geysir and sites of fascinating geological interest.
So what can you expect on the Golden Circle tour? Your first stop is the Thingvellir National Park, where you can see the shift in tectonic plates slowly taking place along the North-American and Eurasian plates. Onwards you’ll explore the geothermal area of Geysir, where you can witness the incredible whoosh and gush of water from the geysers!
Other inclusions on your Golden Circle tour can include:
- Skaftafell National Park,
- Vatnajokull Glacier and
- the Skogafoss Waterfall. Y
Your final stop is the mighty Gullfoss waterfall, a wonderful point for taking photographs, followed by a Superjeep experience (or snowmobiling should you have a thirst for a more thrilling ride!) over the second largest ice cap in Iceland, the Langjökull.
What’s more, for fans of the HBO Series, this full-day excursion will make you feel like an extra in Game of Thrones as you venture into the very heart of the country, ‘north of the wall’!
