On my 3rd day in Iceland, I went on a tour of the Golden Circle with Reykjavik Excursions. This six hour journey took me (and a packed bus full of tourists) to Thingvellir National Park, a hot spring hot spot home to the famous Geysir and the astounding Gullfoss waterfalls.
Unfortunately, the bad weather kept up and we were met with dark clouds and rain for most of our Golden Circle tour. At our final stop at Gullfoss, Mother Nature decided to have even more fun by throwing some snow and freezing wind our way. It must have been comical to see a huge herd of people covered in white fluff and shielding their faces on the way back to the bus.
The famed Northern Lights have still been avoiding me. I’ve been scheduled to see them every night since I’ve arrived but each day my tour gets cancelled due to crap weather. Only 2 nights left for things to hopefully turn around! Besides that, my remaining Iceland itinerary after the Golden Circle includes a walk up to the viewing deck of Perlan and a tour of Iceland’s southern coast.
