Once within the Golden Circle, start with a visit to the fascinating Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here, you can walk on a path in the rift valley between the North American and Eurasion tectonic plates. Next on the route is the Haukadalur geothermal area, where you can see Geysir—the original “geyser”—and its more active neighbour Strokkur, which spouts water every few minutes.

At the nearby Skógar Folk Museum you can explore an old turf farm in the open-air museum or browse interesting hisrotical artefacts indoors.

    Your next stop is the black volcanic beach at Vík, with stunning views of Reynisdrangar rock formations out at sea.

    For those that don’t mind a long day on the road, a visit to Skaftafell and the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon would be worth the extra time behind the wheel. *Please note that this would be a long drive, adding an extra 400 km / 248 mi to the day’s itinerary.
