The Golden Circle is often at the top of the bucket list when coming to Iceland. The Golden Circle and Kerid Crater offers all the classic stops with some handpicked extras. We will for example head to Thingvellir, where the first Icelandic parliament was founded in 930 AD, one of the oldest in Europe. Gullfoss, the golden waterfall, one of the most powerful on the whole continent, is our next stop. We will also stop at Kerid volcanic crate, which is 55 meters deep and 270 meters wide.
