golden circle in iceland

The Golden Circle is a tour of some of the spectacular natural wonders of Iceland easily accessible form Reykjavik.  

Thingvellir, is said to be the original site of the oldest existing parliament in the world. The Great Atlantic rift is clearly visible, a rift that is slowly pulling Iceland apart along the tectonic plates.  In stunning beautiful autumn colours, the vegetation was soft and spongy underfoot.

What a wonderful world we live in!
