Golden Circle Classic

A number of Iceland’s most beautiful and historically significant locations can be found within a short distance of each other. Among them, you will find Gullfoss – The Golden Falls – where the mighty River Hvítá plunges into a narrow, dark canyon. On sunny days a rainbow glitters in the spray above the raging torrent.

Nearby is Geysir, an area of hot springs that gave the English language the term geyser, a surprising phenomenon where a huge fountain of scalding water intermittently spouts from the ground.

A short bus drive across the barren heath leads to Þingvellir, a national park which is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Geological forces are relentlessly pulling the surface of the earth apart, and the growing gap between the Eurasian and American tectonic plates can clearly be seen. It is also the site of the world’s oldest parliament, a place of great cultural and historical significance for Icelanders.
