Golden Circle is the most popular day tour in Iceland. 

The tour links some of the country’s most impressive natural attractions, such as Gullfoss, Geysir and Thingvellir in one day. A visit to the most beautiful Waterfall in Iceland named Gullfoss (translated Golden waterfall), and to the bubbling geothermal hot springs at Geysir area is a must. There you will see the hot spring Strokkur who spouts hot water 30 meters (100ft) into the air every 5-10 minutes interval.

Usually we stop first at Thingvellir National park, which is an interesting place both from a geological point, but also historically as the world first parliament was founded there in the year 930 AD, also known as "Althing". There you see clearly how two tectonic plates separate North America and Europe. The fissures have been moving apart at the rate of 2 centimeters every year which gives the fissure spectacular appearance. Here you will also see the amazing clear glacier water which can be found in some fissures which opened in a earthquake in the year 1789. Thingvellir is UNESCO World Heritage Site. A visit to the greenhouse at Fridheimar, the tomato farm and restaurant is a popular option. There we have the opportunity to have a short lunch break tasting their famous tomato soup at their restaurant.
