Attractions & Activities

The Golden Circle

Golden Circle Apartments like the name suggests is located in the middle of the Golden Circle. So why not enjoy a relaxing day in the heart of Laugarvatn while seeing Þingvellir, Gullfoss and Geysir and so much more.

Thingvellir National Park was Icelands first parliament dating back to almost the settlers. Vikings would choose places where two lakes form an X into the sea for their parliament, they believed the sea had healing powers, so Þingvellir is very strategically located.  Their first written law book Grágás is also believed by many to be the basis for the American law system.  (16km) more…  

 

Geysir is a geyser that has been dormant for a number of years but his brother Strokkur erupts around every 5-10 minutes. No matter how many times you are able to catch the sight of it you will feel in awe about the wonders of the earth. (29km) – more…

 

Gullfoss is our most popular tourist attraction and is a wonder for the eyes. As one first approaches the falls, the edge is obscured from view, so that it appears that the river simply vanishes into the earth. A sight not to be missed. (30km) – more…
