The Golden Circle Tour :
The ONLY 'guided tour' that I took in Iceland ! Very expensive tour ! Nevertheless the most famous when you come to Iceland if you are the pampered-type tourist. Felt silly even taking this 'tour' because I should have discovered the places on my own self ! Every word muttered by the tour guide, I had read them all before; The bonus side was the silly jokes. For example, "...This is the land of the trolls !".
We came to this waterfall called Gullfoss. Vast amount of water flowing over huge cliffs & rocks ! So loud ! Many tourists as expected. Photos later...

All the photos on my Gullfoss Page are taken from the excursion tour : THE GOLDEN CIRCLE TOUR, that I took from Reykjavik.
I combine them together hence easy for you lot to see the 'stops' or places that we would be in if taking this excursion tour. Please click on the pages...

PAGE 1 : Leaving Reykjavik, stopping in Hveragerdi inside a greenhouse; Continued to Kerid Crater & stopping at Skalholt Church...
