The Golden Circle route consists of: Geysir, Gullfoss waterfall, Þingvellir National Park, and Kerid.
Þingvellir is a site of historical, cultural, and geological significance. The park lies in a rift valley that marks the crest of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge and the boundary between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. Gullfoss ‘Golden Falls’ is a waterfall located in the canyon of the Hvítá river. Strokkur at Geysir is one of Iceland's most famous geysers, erupting once every 6 to 10 minutes. Its usual height is 15-20m. Kerid is a volcanic crater that has the most visually recognizable caldera still intact (red volcanic rock).
