Embark on a journey of the Golden Circle where you'll see the rugged lava fields of the Þingvellir National Park, the spellbinding sight of Gullfoss waterfall, and the erupting hot springs at Geysir geothermal area on this fun-filled tour. Not only will you see these famous attractions, but you'll also stop at the red hills of Rauðhólar.
A personal guide and driver will pick you up in Reykjavík, in a comfortable 4WD jeep, and take you to your first attraction, Þingvellir National Park. In 2004, UNESCO designated it as a World Heritage region, as it is here Iceland's parliament, Alþingi, was established in 930 AD.
Þingvellir is also located in a rift valley, between two continental plates. The park is surrounded by moss-covered lava field and sits on the banks of Iceland's largest lake, Þingvallavatn.
As your journey continues, you will be taken through the countryside to the stunning Gullfoss waterfall. Witness the powers of Mother Nature as you watch glacial water tumble down 32-metes into a rugged canyon. Gullfoss means 'Golden Waterfall'. It is indeed an enthralling sight!
Your final stop on the Golden Circle route is at the Geysir region. Here you will come across many bubbling hot springs and mud pools, but the most exciting sight is the geyser Strokkur that spouts a vast quantity of water into the air every 5-10 minutes.
Before you return to Reykjavík, you'll stop at Rauðhólar red hills, which are the remnants of a collection of pseudocraters located in the lava field of Elliðaárhraun. Iceland presents the only area that you can experience this marvel in the world as the only region you can come across something similar is in Athabasca Valles of Mars.
