The ‘Golden Circle’ is one of the most popular places to visit in Iceland within a day. This is due to a number of contrasting landscapes being in close proximity with easy access.
We will start by visiting the Geysir geothermal area and see the stunning Strokkur shoot up a water column up to 30 meters (98 feet) into the air every 4-7 minutes.
After that we would continue our journey and visit Gullfoss waterfall in Hvítá (White River) which originates in the highlands. The river drops down a 32 meter (105 feet.) cliff forming the majestic waterfall.
The Golden Circle tour also includes ‘Thingvellir’, a historical and geological wonder where the American and Eurasian tectonic plates meet and are pulling apart the ground few centimeters per year. A truly unique place on planet earth.
In addition, we can pay a visit to the pleasant garden greenhouse, ‘Fridheimar’ that grows organic tomatoes and cucumbers. There you can learn about geothermal agriculture that makes use of the heat that Iceland has in abundance.
Before returning to your accommodation we can end the journey with bathing in ‘The Secret Lagoon’ and refresh your energy in a geothermal area, a surreal landscape full of mystique and power.
Alternatively, if you like more excitement, we could go on a snowmobile at Langjökull at an additional cost.
MEAL -not included, but we’ll stop for lunch and dinner break
Note: Your driver guide will pick you up at your hotel and drive you back there in the end of the day.
