Welcome to Iceland!
Arrival to Iceland in the morning or afternoon. Upon arrival at Keflavík Airport you will be met by our driver and given a warm welcome to Iceland. Your bus will take you to your hotel in Reykjavík.
GEYSERS, A GOLDEN WATERFALL AND THINGVELLIR!
Breakfast at the hotel. Pick-up at the hotel from 09:00 for a tour to the Golden Circle.
The trip departs Reykjavík and heads over the Hellisheiði highlands towards your first stop, the town of Hveragerdi..
This small town is known for its many greenhouses heated by geothermal energy.
Next stop is the geothermal area of Geysir with its many hot springs and the most active geyser in the country, Strokkur. This impressive natural phenomenon erupts roughly every five minutes, propelling a majestic cascade of water high up into the sky. You can wander around bubbling mud pools and steaming underground hot springs – and simply feel the power of the earth coursing right beneath your feet.
A short drive away from Geysir is the mighty Gullfoss – the Golden Waterfall – which is widely regarded as the most beautiful waterfall in all of Iceland. The waterfall has two stages and offers visitors the chance to get up close to the huge bodies of water that come crashing down over its edge and into the ravine below.
The next stop of the day is the beautiful Thingvellir National Park. This was once the site of the Icelandic Althing, the oldest parliament in the world dating back to the 900s. Iceland lies right on the fracture between the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates and it is in Thingvellir National Park where the effects of this geological phenomenon are most clear to see. Afterwards you will then head back to Reykjavík. The evening will be yours to enjoy as you like.
