Iceland is a land of glaciers and lava deserts inland, with towns and villages scattered along the coast. National Route 1, also known as the Ring Road, circles Iceland, connecting these coastal towns. The scenic beauty of the road and the many tourist attractions that represent Iceland make it the perfect road trip.
The Golden Circle is a classic tourist route that takes you through the spectacular natural art of Iceland. The most popular spots are the Þingvellir National Park, with the cracks of the continental plates appearing on the surface of the earth; the Geysir, which erupts from the earth; and the Gullfoss Waterfall, where the glacier flows and makes a mighty splash. There are many tours from Reykjavik that will take you to the heartbeat of the earth.
