The Golden Circle is one of Iceland‘s most popular day tours. You can observe the beauty of Iceland´s nature and learn about the country´s history, dating back to the settlement era. You begin the day by driving from Lambastadir Guesthouse to the waterfalll Urridafoss. Urriðafoss is a waterfall located in the river Þjórsá in southwest Iceland and is the watermost waterfall in Iceland. In the early days of power companies plans were to build a power plant in Urriðafoss and make a railway to Reykjavík from the waterfall. It did not happen but now Landsvirkjun is planning to build hydropower stations on the lower part of Þjórsár river, at Urriðafoss and Núpur.
