The Essential Golden Circle – in a minibus
The Golden Circle has for years been one of the most popular day-tours out of Reykjavík and on this tour we visit the most interesting locations on the circle, the essentials.
Kerið is a striking crater-lake filled with milky blue-green water amid stark black and deep red slopes. Geologists now believe it to be a collapsed magma chamber at the end of a volcanic eruption that occurred more than 6,000 years ago.
In the Geysir geothermal area we get the chance to observe the boiling hot spring Strokkur spout steaming water up to 25 meters into the air every 5-7 minutes.
The iconic waterfall of Gullfoss, or Golden Falls is located in the glacial river Hvítá which originates in Langjökull glacier, the second largest in Iceland. Its elegant and majestic form is like no other, where the torrential river water plummets in two steps down into a 32 meters deep canyon carved out by the glacia-river for thousands of years.
Efstidalur dairy farm, owned by the same family since 1850, is a sustainable organic farm with brilliant views of hulking Hekla and nearby mountains. Efstidalur offers amazing ice cream, great coffee and has windows looking into the dairy barn. A great stop for children and adults alike.
Þingvellir National Park is not only a site of geological wonders, located in between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates, but also a place charged with history, as the site of the national parliament since 930. The Alþingi (assembly) at Þingvellir was Iceland’s supreme legislative and judicial authority from its establishment until 1271.
Þingvellir tells stories of geographical and political struggles, compromises and ongoing evolution. Þingvellir was accepted on the UNESCO World Heritage list for its cultural values in 2004.
