As the name Golden Circle Photo Tour indicates it is a circle covering ca. 300 km from Reykjavik into a part of the inhabitable highlands of Iceland and back.
This is a day tour that gives you good preview of extraordinary Iceland and its magnificent nature.
The four primary stops on the Golden Circle Photo Tour are:
The national park Þingvellir. The Þingvellir area is part of a fissure zone running through Iceland, being situated on the tectonic plate boundaries of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. The faults and fissures of the area make evident the rifting of the earth’s crust. You´ll walk through those fissures and get a glimpse of the sagas and the old Iceland from the Viking age in. Thingvellir is on the World Heritage list for its cultural values but it´s also a natural wonder on an international scale.
The waterfall Gullfoss (“golden falls”) a magnificent waterfall that falls in steps in to a huge ravine.
The geothermal active area named Haukadalur, which contains the geysers Geysir and Strokkur. Strokkur is very dependable and erupts every 5 -10 minutes.
The waterfall Brúárfoss, a hidden gem in Icelandic nature. Breathtaking scenery for all seasons.
During the winter months, when the forecast for Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) is promising this trip is ideally combined with a Northern Lights tour. Be prepared to stay up late and experience magic. Ask our guide for further informations.
