The Golden Circle Route

If you only had one day in Iceland (which would be a tragedy), this would be the excursion to do.
The golden circle, is a condensed Iceland that brings you to three must-see locations that have become icons of the country.

Geysir, a little village on the fringe of Iceland's interior, gives its name to the rare and incredible geothermal phenomenon. At Gulfoss, "the golden falls", the Hvita river, puts on a technicolor show as the sun draws rainbows through the cascade's mist, with deafening background music. And at Thingvellir, Icelandic history is on the menu, as this is the site of the world's oldest existing parliament...and the only place where the Atlantic oceanic rift is visible. All that in one day!
