Your trip will start in Reykjavik, from which you’ll get to know the country by passing its magnificent countryside, historic buildings, horse farms, and dramatic landscapes. Golden Circle is one of the most famous routes in Iceland. During this trip, you get to witness its main sights and admire other less-seen places. Agriculture and farming were and are an essential part of Iceland, so you’ll also pass through its lands, seeing authentic Iceland without jumping from one sight to another. 

Your first main highlight will be the Kerid volcanic crater, also called “an eye of the world.” The reason this 3000-year-old crater is named this way is because of the lake situated in its middle. This water formation is filled with extremely blue water, making the whole sight look like a giant eye.

Next on your agenda is Fridheimar Greenhouse Farm, known for its innovative solutions and horticultural engineering that involves using geothermal energy and hot water recourses. You’ll also have an opportunity to try some fresh farm treats. 

Next is Geysir – the legendary hot spring, the oldest geyser in the world. In the area, you will find other smaller hot springs and pools. One of them is Strokkur – an active geyser that bursts every few minutes and reaches a remarkable 30 meters of height. 

Not that far away from Geysir is another must-visit attraction – the Gullfoss waterfall. 140 cubic meters of water from river Hvita uninterruptedly plunges down, creating a scenic view. For this reason, Gulfoss is called one of the most iconic waterfalls in Iceland. 

The last stop before heading back to Reykjavik is Thingvellir National Park. This historical and natural site surrounded by exciting landscapes is of great importance. In this place, the first Icelandic parliament was held in 930 AD. In 2004 the park was added to the UNESCO World Heritage list. Thingvellir is also known for its distinct geological features. One of these is that the park is the only place in the world where you can find yourself between two tectonic plates (North American and Eurasian). After spending your time here, you’ll return to the capital.

Please note that for an additional 55 USD, you can also be driven to Blue Lagoon, Secret Lagoon, or Fontana Lakefront SPA and spend two hours there. For this, please make reservations before the trip, as this admission is not included.
