Golden Circle Area

Golden Circle Area

The Golden Circle area reaches from Selvogur west of Þorlákshöfn to the east of the town of Hella, along the seaside, and into the highlands. The area is as vast as it is diverse; there is a wide variety of attractions such as Þingvellir National Park, Gullfoss and Geysir, which together comprise the golden circle, the highland areas of Kerlingarfjöll, Kjölur, Sprengisandur and Landmannalaugar, Langjökull glacier and the Hekla volcano with its surrounding area, to name a few.

The area has a rich food culture and a longstanding history of producing dairy products, meat and vegetables. The area‘s natural geothermal energy has also been a source for innovation and inspiration when it comes to food and you might find restaurants that use hot springs to actually cook some dishes.
