The scenery was incredible, especially if you've a degree in geology and geography like I have. You can go on coach trips, but if you don't mind driving abroad, hire a car and do it yourself. The roads are ok to drive on if you treat them with respect and are empty. Even the gravel ones are ok. Google the Driving in Iceland video, but don't let it put you off. Just do as it says.

Þingvellr, Geysir and Gulfoss were amazing and they are free to enter.

Worthwhile trip, a lot of driving but the Icelandic countryside is beautiful. Enjoyed the geysir but the Golden Waterfall is stunning. We went with Reykjavic Tours who provided a very informative guide. Stop off to look at some geological faults on the way back.

We toured the Golden Circle region with the Mountaineer Guides (Thora was our guide). Our guide was amazing and explained so much about the geological and geographical history of the area.
