Come join me for a tour around the Golden circle, this adventure promises to be comfortable, intimate and inspiring.
We depart Reykjavík at 9 am and head straight to our first stop, Þingvellir. This is one of Iceland's three national parks and our only UNESCO world heritage site. The area is steeped in history it is where our parliament was established, where we got our independence from Denmark in 1944, and where the nation converted to Christianity overnight in the year 1000. It is also the best place in the world to see the rift valley between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates.
Our next stop is the Geysir geothermal area. This is a beautiful place with many hot springs and two erupting geysers. The one named Geysir itself is sporadic and unreliable, but the other, Strokkur, erupts every 5 to 10 minutes, blasting a column of water up to 30 m high.
Gullfoss is just a few kilometers down the road and is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in Iceland. It is incredibly powerful, and an impressive 32 m high, over two dramatic drops. You will not be able to stop marveling over this breathtaking force of nature.
