Day 1: Golden Circle & Secret Lagoon

One of the three stops on the Golden Circle path is the Gullfoss waterfall, often known as the Golden Waterfall. There is an excellent reason why this magnificent waterfall sees tens of thousands of tourists each and every year. It is ranked as one of the best waterfalls in the world by the World of Waterfalls, making it one of the top ten best waterfalls overall.

You will get the opportunity to walk among the boiling hot springs that surround the magnificent Geysir, but for your own safety, you should make sure to keep within the limited area. Before moving on to your next destination, you should make it a point to stop by the Strokkur geyser, which may shoot water up to 40 meters into the air at its highest point.

Þingvellir National Park
A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Thingvellir National Park. This is one of the best places to learn about Iceland's history and marvel at the country's natural beauty at the same time.

Secret Lagoon
The oldest swimming pool in Iceland is a natural hot spring that can be used year-round for bathing. Because of the length of time that it was kept a secret, the locals refer to this body of water as the "Secret Lagoon." Now you can take a dip in the hot water of this amazing pool in a magical setting that will give you plenty of chances to take great photos.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
