The Golden Circle Tour
Iceland is a bit of a geological oddity. With volcanoes, geysers, waterfalls, hot springs, mountains, and more, this Nordic island is home to a whole lot of natural wonders that stretch across the country. So, a good option to see as much as you can is to go on the Golden Circle Tour. The all-day excursion takes tourists by bus through foggy hills and snowy mountains first to Friðheimar Farm, where visitors can start their day with a homemade Bloody Mary, then to the Geysir geothermal area, where nature-lovers can hike mountains, watch geysers erupt, and eat some creamy mushroom soup, and later to Gollfoss Waterfall and its surrounding hills, which look straight out of Game of Thrones. The trip is finished with a stroll through Thingvellir National Park, where tectonic plates can be seen slowly pulling apart year after year.
