Iceland’s leading tour provider is offering trips to the Golden Circle, the country’s most desired tour destination according to recent surveys conducted on the Icelandic tourism industry.
The Golden Circle is Iceland’s most visited tourism route due to its wonderful sights and landmarks, as well as being only roughly 300 km to and from Reykjavik.
There are three main stops during the circle: Thingvellir; the waterfall Gullfoss (golden falls); and the active geothermal valley of Haukadalur, which contains the geysers Geysir and Strokkur.
Thingvellir is a site of historical, cultural, and geological importance; Alþingi, Iceland’s parliment was established at Thingvellir in 930 and remained there until 1798.
In 1930, the national park was founded to protect the parliament site, as well as Thingvallavatn, the largest natural lake in Iceland. Thingvellir is also the site of a rift valley that marks the crest of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge.
As part of Reykjavik Excursions’ Golden Circle tour, visitors will have the chance to visit the aforementioned sights, as well as the Fridheimar cultivation centre, and experience the Geysir multimedia show.
In addition, guests will be able to share their photos online during the tour due to Reykjavik Excursions offering free wireless Internet access on every bus in its fleet.
