The Golden Circle

Despite the tourism, the Golden Circle is almost inevitable when traveling to Iceland, and there’s a reason for it. Thingvellir, Geysir, Gullfoss as well as the surrounding landscape were astonishing sights. Although the tourism was massive, and took some of the magic out of it, it was still worth the trip. However sometimes you wish these places were less accessible and was surrounded purely by the nature they derived from rather than parking lots and ice cream stores. Nature is for everyone but sometimes it seemed like the majority of the people visiting were mostly interested in proving that they were there with a selfie, rather than truly enjoying the incredible nature. Our journey was coming to an end. We have seen incredible places, challenged ourselves and had two incredible weeks in the the barren, beautiful Icelandic nature. Fortunately there are still plenty of ares on Iceland yet to be discovered in the future.
