The Golden Circle Iceland Travel Vlog

Check out our Golden Circle Iceland Video from our travel vlog series.

On the third day of our Iceland trip, we ventured out to explore the Golden Circle Iceland. We picked up our rental car and drove on our own around this popular tourist destination that’s only a short trip from Reykjavik. The Golden Circle is made up of three main tourist sites: Thingvellir National Park, Geysir, and Gullfoss. It’s a great way to get a good feel for the entire island. If you only have one day to spend outside of Reykjavik, the Golden Circle is the best way to see Iceland’s spectacular nature in a short amount of time.

On the second part of our Iceland travel vlog series, we take you to the Golden Circle. First, you’ll see the brilliant Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Then, we’ll provide you with a quick glimpse of Gullfoss, a huge waterfall (unfortunately, we didn’t stay there long as it was pouring rain). And possibly saving the best for last, you’ll see the famous erupting geyser, Strokkur.

    Wow, that is quite the geyser, and so cool to see it on video rather than a still photo.

    Wow – even with the rain, that looks awesome! Love the geyser and Gullfoss. The hiking in Thingvellir looks fantastic, too! You’ve pretty much got us talked into going! :)
