Iceland Golden Circle

 
 

The Golden Circle is a popular tourist route in Iceland that covers about 300 km and includes three main attractions: Thingvellir National Park, Geysir geothermal area, and Gullfoss waterfall. Here’s a bit more information on each of these attractions:

  1. Thingvellir National Park: This UNESCO World Heritage Site is located about 40 km northeast of Reykjavik and is known for its stunning landscapes, including a rift valley caused by the separation of the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. Visitors can explore the park’s hiking trails, lakes, and historic sites, including the site of Iceland’s first parliament, which was established in 930 AD.

  2. Geysir geothermal area: This area is home to numerous hot springs and geysers, including the famous Strokkur geyser, which erupts every few minutes, shooting water up to 30 meters into the air. The area also features bubbling mud pots, fumaroles, and other geothermal wonders.

  3. Gullfoss waterfall: This majestic waterfall is located in the canyon of the Hvítá river and is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Iceland. The waterfall drops about 32 meters into a rugged canyon and offers stunning views from various viewing platforms.
