The Golden Circle attracts a lot of tourists and adventure enthusiasts from across the world with its mighty waterfalls, national parks vistas, and geysers. It is a place which has so much to offer and tourists in big numbers visit this destination throughout the year.
The Golden Circle Tour shows you some of Iceland’s most stunning sights:
- The Geysir geothermal area where the Strokkur geyser shoots a column of water up into the air approx. every 10 minutes
- The Gullfoss waterfall
- The geological wonder Thingvellir National Park, where the American and Eurasian tectonic plates are pulling apart
The Golden Circle is very easy to drive and explore yourself. The roads are well-maintained and many people drive it every day. Some people also prefer to drive during the winter days, however, if you are not comfortable doing it, you should avoid because the weather conditions can be very challenging.
Things you need to drive the Golden Circle is a car. There are different car rental agencies available in Iceland which can serve you.
On my first Iceland trip in October 2015, I was not sure if you could make it with a car (m navigation skills are totally crap), therefore I chose a tours company for Golden Circle Tour.
The Golden Circle tour is a perfect way to make endless and golden memories which you can cherish for the rest of your life. The breathtaking sites at this area will provide you the opportunity to capture some fascinating pictures and take with you the moments that will become memories.
