In the south of Iceland, approximately 40 km from Reykjavik, there are many of the country’s most popular tourist attractions, such as Gullfoss, Geysir and the historically important area of Þingvellir.

Most tourists visiting the south of Iceland are interested in these places, which is why we will meet the most people here. The region around the Golden Circle is known not only for its highly developed agricultural production, interesting folklore and ancient Icelandic sagas, but also impressive volcanoes such as Hekla or Eyjafjallajökull, and wonderful rivers such as Hvítá, Rangá and the mighty Þjórsá, which irrigates huge tracts of land.

The biggest attractions of the Golden Circle are Þingvellir – an area of great cultural and geological importance, where the Icelandic parliament met for the first time in 930, Geysir – an old but active geyser – one of two located in the Haukadalur geothermal area – from from which this type of geothermal springs is named, and Gullfoss, called the Golden Waterfall, located on the Hvítá River, whose powerful stream flows down two gigantic steps at a speed of 140 m3/s.
