The Golden Circle is Iceland’s most popular tourist route. Although, if you observe the route from above, on a map, it does not look like a circle. It looks like a young child’s attempt at a circle. But that is beside the point. It may not be the perfect circle, but it is the perfect tourist route. The tour begins with a stopover at the Thingvellir national park (a World Heritage Site), which was the site of Iceland’s historical parliament – the oldest extant parliamentary institution in the world. We will also visit the Geysir hot spring area, a geothermal field that features two popular geysers: one, still active, called Strokkur, which regularly spews columns of hot water into the air for the benefit of spectators, the other, the original Geyser, which has retired from the business (almost entirely) and lounges about like a common rain puddle. We will also visit the Gullfoss waterfall (the golden waterfall in English), Iceland’s most famous waterfall. And although these three sites are usually the only things included on your run-of-the-mill Golden Circle tour – but we do more. Our tour takes you to a volcanic crater lake, Kerið, with extra stops along various other interesting places, such as the Friðheimar greenhouse. If you are to be involved in any circular activities in Iceland, we suggest that you involve yourself in this one: the Golden Circle tour – our way
