The Golden Circle

The Golden Circle

star-5
Explore the natural beauty of Iceland´s most treasured sights on the Golden circle. This beautiful region is never short of fantastic scenery. Discover the geothermal energy of Haukadalur, where the geyser Strokkur is very dependable and erupts every 5 to 10 minutes. Only a few minutes away from the geothermal area you will find Gullfoss waterfall which is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Iceland. Witness the mighty Hvítá glacial river as it plunges into a deep gorge. We like to bring our friends to a local dairy farm to taste refreshing homemade ice cream while admiring the cows on the farm. We also like to suggest a light lunch at Friðheimar greenhouse, where every item on the menu has tomatoes. An absolutely delightful restaurant and staff.

Afternoon Golden Circle | Small Group

star-5
The Golden Circle is one of the most popular sightseeing tour in Iceland – which doesn’t come as a surprise considering you are visiting the most renowned attractions in the country when you drive along the Golden Circle route. The tour mainly consists of 3 distinctly unique locations; Thingvellir National Park, the Geysir known as Strokkur and the waterfall called Gullfoss. Thingvellir is the first stop which showcases where the Icelandic Parliament began in 930AD and is still running to this day. The second stop is the only erupting Geysir in Iceland, Strokkur. In 1963 after decades of it not erupting locals under advice from the Geysir Committee helped to clear a blockage and it has been erupting ever since. The third and final stop is Gullfoss (Golden Waterfall) which was created at the end of the last Ice Age. Gullfoss is known to be the largest waterfall in terms of volume of water with the average around 1400 m³/s in summer and 80 m³/s in winter.
