Things to Do in the Golden Circle, Iceland

Iceland is known for its natural beauty. From glaciers, geysers, and waterfalls to hot springs and dazzling, unpopulated landscapes, here is a land that has been shaped by the forces of the Earth.

Though these could seem far-flung, visiting these attractions in the south is made easy thanks to their proximity to Reykjavik, the capital city. 

From here, visitors embark on the famous Golden Circle — a route that takes in some of the country’s most memorable landmarks.


The logical starting point for any road trip around Iceland’s Golden Circle, Reykjavik is the capital city of this Nordic nation and the place to be for cafes and plenty of culture.



This iconic cathedral may look cutting-edge, but construction on this concrete landmark began in 1945.



Home to the Icelandic Symphony Orchestra and the Icelandic Opera, Reykjavik’s waterside concert hall and cultural center first opened its doors in 2011.
