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.
If you want to learn more about the Golden Circle and how to drive it yourself, read our full travel article: Golden Circle Self Drive Tour.
The Golden Circle Iceland
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.
Golden Circle Vlog
Without further ado, here’s our Golden Circle Vlog! While beautiful pictures of Iceland show you a glimpse into what it’s like to visit the island, this Golden Circle video will allow you to witness the magic and beauty of this stunning country even better.
Are you interested in planning a longer trip around Iceland that extends beyond the Golden Circle? We visited Iceland for two weeks, embarking on a road trip around the entire island.
