According to recent surveys conducted on the Icelandic tourism industry, the Golden Circle has been noted as the most desired tour destination in Iceland.
Covering roughly 300 km to and from Reykjavik, the Golden Circle is the most visited tourism route in Iceland. There are three main stops during the circle: Thingvellir; the waterfall Gullfoss (golden falls); and the active geothermal valley of Haukadalur, which contains the geysers Geysir and Strokkur.
Thingvellir is a site of historical, cultural, and geological importance; Alþingi, Iceland’s parliment was established at Thingvellir in 930 and remained there until 1798.
In 1930, the national park was founded to protect the parliament site, as well as Thingvallavatn, the largest natural lake in Iceland. Thingvellir is also the site of a rift valley that marks the crest of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge.
With this in mind, leading tour provider in Iceland Reykjavik Excursions, offers a brilliant Golden Circle tour. As part of the tour, guests will have the chance to visit the aforementioned sights, as well as the Fridheimar cultivation centre, and experience the Geysir multimedia show.
