2. Drive the Golden Circle
The Golden Circle is Iceland’s most popular sightseeing route, and for good reason. It encompasses incredible natural wonders of South Iceland, including Þingvellir National Park, Geysir geothermal area, and Gullfoss waterfall.
This glacier lagoon in the southern part of Vatnajökull National Park will make you feel like you’ve been transported to a different world. It’s become one of Iceland's most popular filming locations, and for good reason. The views are surreal and can be accessed by both guided and self-drive tours.
