Golden Circle Tour

This popular excursion introduces you to some of the best known historical sites and natural phenomena in Iceland. We will start by visiting the Þingvellir National Park, where the Icelandic Parliament, Alþingi, was founded in the year 930 AD. Þingvellir is a geological marvel and its tectonic plate boundaries form breath-taking scenery. We will then continue to the beautiful Gullfoss waterfall, where we will be able to walk so close to the edge that we might even feel the mist of the glacial water on our faces.

From Gullfoss we will drive towards the geothermal area around the incredible spouting hot springs of Geysir and Strokkur. We proceed to Skálholt church, the ancient seat of the Icelandic bishops. From there we travel towards Hveragerði, a small and charming horticultural village.
