The Golden Circle Day Trip
Thingvellir: Thingvellir is a site of historical, cultural, and geological importance. It is the site of a rift valley that marks the crest of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. It is also home to Thingvallavatn, the largest natural lake in Iceland.
Geysir: Though the Great Geysir itself is now more or less inactive, the area surrounding it is geothermically very active with many smaller hot springs. The attraction of the area is now Strokkur (another geyser 100 meters south of the Great Geysir) which erupts at regular intervals every 10 minutes or so and its white column of boiling water can reach as high as 30 meters. The whole area is a geothermal park sitting on top of a vast boiling cauldron. Belching sulphurous mud pots of unusual colors, hissing steam vents, hot and cold springs, warm streams, and primitive plants can all be found here.
Gullfoss: One of Iceland's most beautiful waterfalls where the mighty river Hvítá plunges into a narrow, dark canyon. On sunny days a rainbow glitters in the spray above the raging torrent.
When approaching the falls, the crevice is obscured from view, so it appears as if the mighty river simply vanishes into the earth.
