Our personalized, half-day Golden Circle tour included stops at Langjökull, Gullfoss, Strokkur, Þingvallavatn and Þingvellir. Although we'd visited more impressive geothermal areas and waterfalls during our two week holiday in Iceland, we really appreciated the stop at Þingvellir, site of the world's oldest parliament and where the mid-Atlantic Ridge is visible above sea level!
We spent almost half our time in Iceland in the Highlands - south, central and north. As our vacation drew to a close, we made one final crossing, from north to south. Highlights included the turf farmhouse at Glaumbær, the Hveravellir hot springs, Gígjarfoss and the Hveradalir geothermal area.
