I've finally reached the end of our road trip through Iceland! It took a while, but we finally made it friends. On our last day, Markus and I packed in a ton of spots and places and drove through the popular tourist route, the Golden Circle. First we stopped at at Þingvellir, then Geysir and finished the day at Kerið. I think by the end, we were ready to stay put in one place and stop living out of a tiny car. I will say that the I didn't regret one minute of our road trip. At first, we were a bit hesitant to do it, but in the end, we knew it would be an unforgettable experience. If you ever make it to Iceland, I recommend that you drive around the whole country and not stick to Reykjavik. Iceland is a beautiful country that is meant to be explored.
Þingvellir is one of the most significant places to visit in Iceland. It's known for being a historical, geological and cultural site and is one of the most popular. It's been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site. The world's oldest existing parliament can be found here as well as the canyon that separates two tectonic plates, which Markus and I dove through later in the week.
About 60 km west of Þingvellir is Geysir or sometimes known as The Great Geysir. After seeing a million waterfalls, it was cool to see water coming from a different direction.
Another popular spot on the Golden Circle tour is Kerið, a volcanic crater. There are several craters in the area and it has been dubbed Iceland's Western Volcanic Zone. It was an incredible thing to see and the perfect end to our road trip!
