Browsing: The Golden Circle

The Golden Circle is often the first area of Iceland people explore. It is popular to rent a car and go on a road trip around the Golden Circle. If that is something you would like to do, I hope that my Golden Circle road trip plan helps you with your planning. The great thing about road trips is that you can really control your own pace.

Go on a Golden Circle tour

If you want to go on a tour around the Golden Circle, you are in luck. There is an incredible selection of tours on offer. I recommend that you book the tours that have the highest rating and the biggest number of reviews. That should ensure that you have a good experience.

Bucket List Material

The route contains beautiful places such as Thingvellir, the world´s oldest parliament, Gullfoss waterfall and the geyser field of Haukadalur valley. The restaurant and tomato farm Friðheimar is also an increasingly popular for a good reason. I love the food and the ambience there. If you have the change, I would go on a snowmobile tour on Langjökull glacier and check out  the fantastic ice tunnel in that glacier.  I also recommend Efsti Dalur which has great ice cream and food.
