The Golden Circle is one of the most popular destinations in Iceland and for a good reason! With its close proximity to Reykjavik it is an ideal day trip to see the best of the Icelandic nature in one go. You could make your trip even more memorable by going snorkeling between the 2 tectonic plates in Silfra. It's a truly magical experience, so much so that there are many who travel to Iceland for this sole purpose.
