The must-do activity for anyone visiting Iceland is to take a day to drive the Golden Circle, a 185-mile (300 kilometers) inland route featuring some of the country’s best attractions in southern Iceland.

Thingvellir is the first place to visit. The site of Iceland’s – and in fact the world’s – first parliament, the Althing. Dating from 930 AD, when the country’s various chieftains would meet to settle disputes and work out ways to harmoniously share this harsh island, this place is steeped in history and is stunningly beautiful.
