The Golden Circle is a popular tourist route in South Iceland, covering about 300 km looping from Reykjavík into central Iceland and back. The three primary stops on the route are the national park Thingvellir, the waterfall Gullfoss and the geyser called Geysir.

Thingvellir National Park is a site of historical, cultural, and geological importance and is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Iceland. It is also home to Thingvallavatn, the largest natural lake in Iceland.

The waterfall Gullfoss, meaning „Golden falls“, is located in the canyon of Hvítá river in southwest Iceland. On a sunlit day, the mist clouds surrounding the hammering falls are filled with dozens of rainbows, providing an unparalleled spectacle of color and motion. In winter, ice around the edges of the falls freezes to form magical shapes of ice and snow.

Geysir was the first geyser described in a printed source and the first known to modern Europeans. Eruptions at Geysir can hurl boiling water up to 70 metres in the air. However, eruptions may be infrequent, and have in the past stopped altogether for years at a time. Geysir's neighbor Strokkur, although not as big, keeps on spouting hot water high up in the air at short intervals. The geyser area is also rich in walking paths that lead past steaming vents and colorful, mineral-rich mud formations.

Langjökull (Icelandic for "long glacier") is the second largest ice cap in Iceland (953 km2). Its volume is 195 km³ and the ice is up to 580 m (1,900 ft) thick. The highest point of the ice cap (at Baldjökull at the northern end of Langjökull) is about 1,450 m (4,760 ft) above sea level.
