Golden Circle is unquestionably the most iconic tourist route in Iceland and it covers three extraordinary locations.
Thingvellir National Park is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. This is where North America meets Europe. It is also the geological birthplace of the island and the historic birthplace of the Icelandic nation.
In Geysir Geothermal Fields the geyser after which all the others take their name lies. The old Geysir is fast asleep, but right next to it is Strokkur, which reliably throws water up to 20 meters up every few minutes!
Our last stop is at Gullfoss – the Golden Waterfall, considered one of the most beautiful and spectacular on the island. A characteristic murmur, audible already at the parking lot, heralds the power of this extraordinary breakthrough. A power that you can witness and enjoy from the viewing terraces located at the top of the canyon, within the canyon and even at the very edge of the waterfall.
Thigvellir, Geysir Geothermal Fields and Gullfoss are unique in terms of their geology but they also bear significant historical and cultural value. Ice Walkers guides weave information and stories necessary to fully appreciate them amidst spectacular sensations.
