On the tour you will explore the iconic Golden Circle and afterwards unwind as you soak in a genuine Icelandic hot spring! On our first stop we retrace the footsteps of ancient Vikings by visiting the Þingvellir National Park. This is where the early settlers established the country´s first national assembly in 930 AD. Þingvellir is also where the American and Eurasian continental plates are dramatically pulling apart at an annual rate of 2 cm. It’s also where the country´s largest natural lake is to be found, Þingvallavatn.
From there we move on to see the world famous Geysir – where the ground trembles and steaming hot water spouts spectacularly skywards from the famous Strokkur Geyser every few minutes.
Our last stop is the dramatic Gullfoss Waterfall, a breathtaking sight to behold. Here a powerful glacial river cascades down 32 meters on two levels into a deep narrow canyon with a thunderous roar.
The last stop on our tour, and the most relaxing, is the Secret Lagoon. Whatever the weather it´s the perfect spot for relaxing in between sightseeing and enjoying Icelandic nature at its very best. Indeed, the geothermal hot water is a hidden treat that Icelanders have been enjoying for generations! Around the Secret Lagoon you find several hot spots. A path has been built so you can have a closer look at the bubbling hot springs and a little Geysir even erupts every 5 minutes, showing off for the guests bathing in the hot spring.
All in all – it’s the perfect combination of activities. Stunning, must-do sightseeing, and a heavenly bathe in a geothermal hot spring set in a gorgeous location!
Þingvellir. Located on the northern shores of lake Þingvallavatn, Þingvellir is the national pride of Iceland and our first National Park. It is, for one, a key location in Icelandic history as the oldest existing parliament in the world first assembled there in 930 AD. Þingvellir has for this reason been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Besides being a location of historical significance, Þingvellir is also protected as a national park due to its unique geology and natural features. Almannagjá is a canyon formed between two tectonic plates, a visual representation of a continental drift.
