Instead of the Golden Circle...

While the Golden Circle (Thingvellir National Park, the Strokkur Geysir and the Gullfoss Falls) is a good day trip, its popularity is partly due to convenience. Don’t be afraid to skip the Golden Circle and see something else just as amazing. A few ideas: Southern Iceland’s black sand; the diverse landscapes of Snaefellsnes peninsula; Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon; an ice cave; "Game of Thrones" filming sites; or try scuba diving inside the continental rift.
