Golden Circle Villas, on the banks of Hvítá, White river, is centrally located in a truly special place in the South-west. The magical Golden Circle in the Southwest is a national treasure; the three stunning locations Þingvellir, Geysir, and Gullfoss are marveled and loved and visited by almost all who come to Iceland; a must-see.
Þingvellir, Parliament Fields, is the birthplace of the World‘s first Nation Parliament where, in a spectacular way, Nature on the borders of the European and American tectonic plates is so to speak tearing Iceland apart.
Gullfoss, The Golden Waterfall, is Iceland’s most iconic waterfall. It flows into a wide curved three-step “staircase” abruptly plunging two into crevices. Geysir in Haukadalur is the world’s most famous Hot spring. Such is its magic that Geysir has lent its name to all geysers of the world.
Golden Circle Villas is located in the tiny village of Laugarás – Warm water axis – by the banks of Hvítá. Laugarás with 120 inhabitants is in the middle of the Circle with most villagers basing their livelihood on Vegetable farming in greenhouses and then there is the popular mini-zoo. Tourism has very much been on the rise in the tiny village.
Nearby is Skálholt Cathedral, one of Iceland´s most historic sites. In the year 1.000 AD Icelander’s turned to Christianity at Þingvellir. In 1056 Skálholt became the home of the country’s first Bishop and Skálholt was for more than 700 years Iceland’s Episcopal seat and a center of culture and home of Iceland’s first school.
