This classic tour will take you to three of Iceland’s most popular attractions, Gullfoss, Geysir, and the National Park Thingvellir. The Golden Circle tour is also operated in a minibus.
At Thingvellir National Park the Great Atlantic rift which is slowly pulling Iceland apart is clearly visible. The Icelandic Parliament Alþingi was established in the year 930 CE.
From Thingvellir, you continue to Gullfoss Waterfall (meaning "Golden Falls"). The longest stop will be here.
We visit the hot spring geothermally active valley of Haukadalur which contains the super or Great Geysir which very rarely spouts now, but when it does it can spew steaming water 200 feet skywards.
The Geysir Strokkur spouts about every few minutes and projects hot water and steam about 60-100 feet into the air. In this area, there are many walking paths giving you a great view of steaming vents and colorful, mineral-rich mud formations.
You will be visiting some of the very best known historical sites and natural phenomena in Iceland.
