Day 1 The Grand Golden Circel
The tour consists of the magnificent sights of Thingvellir, Gullfoss, and Geysir in South Iceland.

Þingvellir is a site of historical, cultural, and geological importance. At Þingvellir you can see clearly how the Eurasian and North-American plates are drifting apart, literally standing on the boundaries between Europe and America. Þingvellir has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Gullfoss is by many considered the most beautiful waterfall in Iceland. The iconic waterfall fed by the second biggest glacier in Iceland, Langjökull, falls 32 meters into a canyon offering a spectacular view surrounded by walls up to 70 meter high.
Close by is the famous hot springs area where we will see the legendary Geysir, the first geyser described in a printed source and which the English word geyser is derived from. Here you will be able to experience the forces of an active geyser, Strokkur, erupting ones every 6-10 minutes.
At Seljalandsfoss waterfall you get the chance to walk behind it, which is exceptional experience for waterfalls. The waterfall falls from the cliff with immense power, forming a deep pool at the bottom. Continuing east, the next stop is the picturesque waterfall Skogafoss. We offer you an opportunity to take a hike to the top, providing you with an incredible view.
