Hello from steamy Iceland!
I spent a long day with a local guide exploring the Golden Circle, the quintessential side-trip from Reykjavík, and working on this very important chapter in our new Iceland guidebook. There are three major stops along the route: Gullfoss waterfall, Þingvellir’s great fissure (), and Geysir, a steaming field of hot springs and geysers.
The English word “geyser” comes from a geyser here that’s actually named Geysir. While the original geyser is no longer very active, its neighbor, Strokkur, belches hot water into the air every 10 minutes or so. You can see how crowded a sight like this is — but it’s no problem. When enjoying the natural punch of Iceland’s sights, there’s generally lots of parking and lots of space.
Heading to Iceland? Pick up a copy of the new Rick Steves Iceland guidebook at . Happy travels!
