We had a week in Iceland during the height of winter,
we wanted to do the golden circle but being aware of the limited daylight during the winter,
we thought it may take longer than a full day to do the circle than it would take in the summer.
2 nights in a minniborgir wooden cabin was just perfect, they even had xmas decorations.
We were able to do the golden circle at our leisure.
We arrived late in the day so a 20 min drive to the bonus supermarket in Selfoss meant we were able to have some quick food and supplies which we could easily cook at the equipped cabin. Next day Kerid crater, Geysir and gulfoss...awesome.
Back to the cabin and short drive into Selfoss for meal at Kaffi Krus (very good review to follow)
back home to kids and ourselves spending the whole night in hot tub, looking toward the clear dark sky, unforgettable.
next day, check out early. No one around at office so quick call and someone cleaning cabins appeared and took our payment..very friendly and no trouble.
Next stop Þingvellir national park before our next stopover in Rekyjavik.
All in all amazing place and amazing country.
