4. The Golden Circle Tour
One of the most awe-inspiring tours in Iceland, begin your Golden Circle journey at the Hellisheiði power station, which harnesses the island’s immense geothermal energy resources. Experience the wonder of Gullfoss, Geysir and Thingvellir National Park. You’ll also visit the magnificent Borgarfjörður fjord, plus the Friðheimar greenhouse, Kerið crater and other geological sites that showcase the country’s majesty.
5. Snæfellsjökull National Park
Iceland’s first national park stretches from the coastline to the Snæfellsjökull glacier, a 4,744-foot volcano thought to be one of Earth’s seven great energy centers. Standing near this volcano and looking out at the North Atlantic Ocean, you can almost imagine the geological miracle that is Iceland beginning to take shape.
