- Today was our touristy day around the Golden Circle stopping at various sights and sites along the way. Nano describes the weather in Iceland like this: ” It’s either raining, about to rain, or just finished raining.” So far that’s pretty accurate! Throughout the day there were also moments of sun-bursts. We saw many of the must sees and we are now looking forward to exploring and camping in the less visited West Fjords…High on beauty low on people, just the way we like it because that’s how we roll!
The pictures will tell the story.
First we attended a “meeting of the titonic plates”
Our next stop was Geysir. This is the original hot water spout after which all other geysers around the world are named.
- Strokkur: The world’s most reliable geyser. A 50-100 foot plume erupts every 5-10 minutes.

After the geasers at the Geysir (thx Nano for that one ) we headed over to Gullfoss, (Golden Falls) Iceland’s most famous waterfall.
Our last stop of the day was a 5 mile round trip hike up, over, around and finally into a valley filled with thermal pools. It was quite impressive.
