|About these ratings|
The Golden Circle is a very popular tourist route that runs 190 miles by the Thingvellir National Park; the Gullfoss (Golden Falls), a 105-foot dual cascading waterfall; and the geothermal Haukadalur Valley, containing the Stokkur geyser that gushes 60-100 feet of water into the air every five minutes; among other attractions.
According to the tourist board, this smattering of attractions is easily accomplished in one day either via your own vehicle or a tour bus, of which many leave Reykjavik daily. Although some recent travelers recommend going at your own pace (in your own car), most travelers highly recommend using a tour company. TripAdvisor travelers like Iceland Excursions and Iceland Horizons.
