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.
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.
