A visit to Iceland's Parliament Plains, Geysir Geothermal Area and Golden Waterfall

The Golden Circle is the most popular tour in Iceland and for a good reason! You'll see some spectacular and iconic Icelandic sights relatively close to each other.

The 250 km (150 mile) route includes the Parliament Plains National Park (Þingvellir) which was the site of the ancient Iceland Parliament established in 930 AD. It also includes a spouting spring at the Geysir geothermal area, and a magnificent waterfall Gullfoss (Golden waterfall).


Golden Circle Tour (6. 5 hours).

= Gullfoss waterfall
= Geysir geothermal area and spouting spring Strokkur
= Thingvellir national park
= Rift between two continents

Depart Reykjavik in the morning for the Parliament Plains National Park, Iceland's most historical place. Then head to the Geysir Geothermal Area which is famous for its spouting spring before exploring the Gullfoss (Golden Waterfall), Iceland's most famous waterfall. Return to Reykjavik via birch woodland and lava fields.
