Introducing The Golden Circle
An artificial tourist circuit loved by thousands of visitors, the Golden Circle takes in three popular attractions all within 100km of the capital: Þingvellir, Geysir and Gullfoss, offering visitors the opportunity to see the country’s most important historical area, a spouting hot spring and a roaring waterfall, all in one condensed, doable-in-a-day tour. Visiting the area under your own steam will allow you to explore some of the exciting attractions further afield.
If you’re planning to spend the night in the Golden Circle, you’ll be spoilt for choice – the area is relatively small in size, making many places a perfectly suitable choice. The Laugarvatn area is a good base with several worthy sleeping and eating options; there are a number of solid choices scattered along Rte 35 as well.
Iceland Family Adventure
Glaciers, volcanoes, all-day sunshine, Viking heritage… Iceland sounds unbelievable on paper, and it’s even more extraordinary in the flesh.
When it comes to environmental wonders, there’s simply nowhere in the world like the top of the world. This trip brings you right up close to lava fields, volcanos and glaciers, set against the magnificent backdrop of Iceland’s natural beauty. Even with all this fire and ice, you’ll still stay comfortable via boat excursions and soaks in hot springs.
