From glaciers (at Jalkulsarlon Glacial Lagoon) to geysers (at Great Geysir
and Strokkur), Iceland will leave you both enthralled.
The route takes in Thingvellir National Park, the Geysir
Geothermal Area and Gullfoss waterfall.
The fountain geyser Strokkur Geysir
was a backdrop in one of the scenes in "Through Night And Day."
The 8-hour tour goes to Geysir
geothermal area, Gullfoss waterfall, Thingvellir National Park (a 'GOT' location), Kerid volcanic crater, and Fridheimar horse farm (where there's a superhot farmer who serves ice cream with honey-fire and ice, indeed).
It visits the Geysir
geothermal area and its spouting springs and Thingvellir National Park.
geothermal area is where one can hear the bubbling of the mud pots, smell the sulfur in the air and watch in awe as the geyser Strokkur blasts boiling water into the air.
The meeting point of continental plates at Thingvellir National Park, the roaring Gulfoss waterfall, and the Geysir
Geothermal Area all combine to make the Golden Circle a must-do trip, and one which can be completed in one day.
Matt got down on one knee during a trip to the Geysir
Hot Springs and on the same evening we were lucky enough to see the Northern Lights.
At the Geysir
geothermal area you can watch the exploding geysers and the bubbling crystal clear hot springs.
While I learned a lot about Iceland through several web sites, I think I learned more by just talking to locals and actually going through the Icelandic experience: driving its scenic roads in snowy and windy conditions, savoring its langoustine lobster and Viking beer, and appreciating the grandeur of its Geysir
, Gulfoss and Glacier lagoon.
For our second day in Iceland, Haf recommended the "Golden Triangle," a 120-mile drive to the country's three top tourist attractions: Thingvellir, Geysir
