In one afternoon you will visit Iceland’s most renowned natural attractions and geological wonders.
On this popular excursion you’ll visit Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site where the old Icelandic parliament Alþingi was established in the year 930 A.D.
Thingvellir National Park is home to Iceland’s largest lake and where the American and European continents meet at Almannagja gorge, a huge chasm that runs through Thingvellir alongside the Lake.
From Thingvellir the Golden Circle tour continues to the majestic Gullfoss waterfall that narrowly escaped being harnessed for the building of a hydroelectric dam.
Then on to Geysir geothermal area where bubbling hot springs and geysers are abundant. Here you’ll find Strokkur, the most active geyser in the area, spouting up to 25-30 meters every few minutes.
