……but keep focusing on more remote areas of Iceland 🙂
Some things need to be seen from the ground, and the Golden Circle is one of them!
The golden circle is one of the main attractions in Iceland, and there’s a good reason why. It is located close to Reykjavik and you have many incredible sights only a short drive apart from each other. You are able to see the diversity this country has to offer during a day trip on the Golden Circle, which is perfect if you are here on a stopover and don’t have the time to do the Ring Road around the whole country. The scenery during this drive ranges from natural wonders to historic buildings, and even if it might not be a part of the actual golden circle there are many things worth stopping for along the drive. And even if it is just to pet some icelandic horses!
There are tour operators who offer guided bus tours around the golden circle showing you the main attractions and giving you some more information, which is great if you don’t want to rent your own car or don’t feel too comfortable about driving around the countryside especially during the wintertime, since the roads can be tricky. However making your own way around gives you the freedom to stop wherever you like along the way.
