Iceland's Golden Circle is a well known easy way to see so much of what this beautiful country has to offer all within a short drive from Reykjavik.

We started off the morning at Thingvellir National Park taking in the geological features while walking between the fault at the meeting point of the North American and Eurasian continental plates. Where else can you touch two continents at once?!

From there we stopped for a lovely lunch in the wonderful warmth of the tomato green houses of Fridheimar farm where we had their very fresh tomato soup and even some tomato beer! After lunch we left the warmth behind to get creamy fresh ice cream from a local dairy farm at Efstidalur II.

Once our stomachs were full we continued on to the Geysir Geothermal area. While the original namesake Geysir is dormant we saw the blast (and got a bit wet) from Strokkur which erupted several times while we were there. Wandering the steamy paths through the boiling pools was quite an otherworldly experience!

From there we drove just a few minutes down the road to the immense Gulfoss waterfall. The power, thundering noise, and shear volume of water was simply breathtaking!

To finish the day we took an hour long hike up to the Reykjadalur Hot Spring Thermal River. This was so unique to swim in the hot river in the brisk cold windy air! It was a lovely way to spend the evening but getting back out into the bitter cold is not something to look forward to!
