Iceland’s so-called “Golden Circle” encompasses some of the country’s most stunning sights. These include the Geysir geothermal area, where the Strokkur geyser shoots a column of water 30 metres into the air every 8 minutes, and the nearby Gullfoss (Golden Falls) waterfall. Most tours also take in Thingvellir National Park, where the rift between the American and Eurasian tectonic plates is clearly visible.
In the southeast of Iceland, Jokulsarlon (Glacial Lagoon) is also one of Iceland’s must-see sights. Up to 160 metres deep, the lagoon is regularly replenished with huge, fantastically shaped blocks of ice which calve from the nearby Breidamerkurjokull glacier, part of the massive Vatnajokull ice cap.
