It’s only 45 mins drive from Reykjavik so we spent a few hours here walking around the park. The main paths are well maintained and there are several car parks dotted around for those who are not able to walk far or are too pressed...More
We went via Reykjavik Excursions. It was part of the Golden Circle tour. My only issue with this is that we don’t spend enough time there. It is because in the Winter there are so few daylight hours.
The natural beauty is incomparable. To be...More
This was our first stop in the circle. The area is very beautiful. There are several viewing areas. Take your time to read about the areas history. The fact that you’re in between the North American and European tectonic plates is awesome too.

The best place to see the tectonic border is Silfra fissure. There is a car park nearby- a 5 minutes walk away and you can either go diving from there or simply walk around and admire the Wall used in Game of thrones.
