The Golden Circle is by far the most popular tourist route in Iceland. With its proximity to Reykjavik, it is an easy way to see some of the popular highlights in Iceland. If you are doing a quick stopover in Iceland or are short on time, the Golden Circle definitely offers some beautiful attractions. The main attractions on the Circle route are Þingvellir, Geysir, and Gullfoss. BUT as long as you are driving all the way out there, there are plenty of hidden gems along the route that are definitely worth a stop! Here is a list of places you should include if you are driving the Golden Circle. For convenience, I have listed these places in geographical “circle” order and included a map at the bottom.
