Today we got ready to go on the famous Golden Circle tour. This is a series of stops of Iceland’s amazing natural features and landforms. Our first stop was a beautiful view of the lake in the National Park.
Then we stopped at the break between the Eurasian and North American plates. Being at this place was surreal as the plates are what create volcanic activity and ultimately creates geothermal energy. It’s also where the first democratic Parliament in the world sat. (Iceland claims democracy before Greece!)
Then we went to a cow farm for ice cream and coffee- no we have not eaten lunch yet:). Then it was onto the Geysir. This area had several hot pools and the original Geysir! Geysir means gusher in Iceland. All other geysers are called to Geysirs because of it. We even saw one erupt several times. Then we ate lunch. We then headed to Gullfoss to see the waterfall. It was beautiful! We ended our day in Jeep buggies through the mountains!
