Golden Circle in Iceland Most Desired Tour Destination During Winter Months

REYKJAVIK, ICELAND -- (Marketwired) -- 02/03/14 -- According to statistics taken from recent surveys conducted on the Icelandic tourism industry, the Golden Circle remains the most desired tour destination in Iceland throughout the winter months.

The three main stops of the circle: Þingvellir; the waterfall Gullfoss (golden falls); and the active geothermal valley of Haukadalur, which contains the geysers Geysir and Strokkur, all take on a different persona during the cold winter days.

The Gullfoss waterfall partially freezes over, forcing the Hvítá river to meander the natural frozen sculptures that transform the canyon base. Þingvellir -- a site of historical, cultural, and geological importance -- also partially freezes over and remains covered in a blanket of snow, for the most part, throughout the winter months.

Reykjavik Excursions, a leading tour provider in Iceland, offers its own take on the Golden Circle tour. As part of its tour, guests will visit the aforementioned sights, as well as the Friðheimar cultivation centre, and experience the Geysir multimedia show.

Furthermore, Reykjavik Excursions offers free wireless Internet access on every bus in its fleet during all excursions in Iceland, as well as the Flybus airport shuttle. This free Internet connection gives passengers the opportunity to interact with their friends and family, as well as uploading photos online seconds after visiting these sights -- sharing their unique experiences over the web.
