If you’re looking for an adventure that will elicit gasps of awe, then make a beeline for Iceland’s Golden Circle. This fascinating loop of geological wonders in southwest Iceland begins in the bustling capital city of Reykjavik. The first stop on your Golden Circle holiday is Thingvellir National Park – a wild expanse that’s dissected by the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates and crossed by the Oxara River. Here, you might spot polar foxes and American Mink, so keep your eyes peeled and have your camera at the ready. Travel onwards, and you’ll arrive at Gulfoss – the legendary waterfall
where vivid rainbows momentarily appear from the pounding water. The final stop on your Golden Circle holiday is the geothermal valley of Haukadalur. Here, you'll see steaming geysers - including the Great Geysir and the active Strokku - that shoot columns of water into the air as well as heavenly hot pools. Immersed in the otherworldly landscape of Iceland’s Golden Circle, you'll hardly be able to believe your eyes and no matter how many photos you take, you just won't be able to do it justice.
