Stunning Nature & Wonderful Experience!

5.0/5.0

The golden circle tour is like the must-do when visiting Reykjavik. You got to see Geysir, Gullfoss and Thingvellir National Park on this loop. Gullfoss is my favorite part - I didn't expect it to be so marvelous. And a walk in Thingvellir National Park is relaxing and refreshing. Didn't like Geysir that much though. Would totally recommend this one day trip to all who wants to see and experience the golden circle in one day!
