Welcome to Iceland! Make the most of your time in Iceland on this Golden Circle day tour.
Iceland’s Golden Circle needs little introduction. However, it is a trio of attractions that all visitors are encouraged to visit when travelling in Iceland. These sites are the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Thingvellir, the magnificent waterfall Gullfoss and the incredible geyser called Strokkur.
Thingvellir is not only a site of great historical importance as the original home of the old Viking parliament, Althing; it is also of great geological significance as this is where the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates meet. What you might not read in a guidebook is that Thingvellir is also a considerable part of the Icelandic psyche, a place that embodies so much of what it means to be Icelandic. Thingvellir is extraordinarily beautiful as well as powerful in its understated lush greenery, its vast lake, its waterfalls, gorges, rifts, fissures and lava. It is also a very different place from one season to the next and even from one day to the next. The weather plays a massive role in the character of Thingvellir.
Full of history and awe, you will head to Geysir and its geothermal surroundings. It’s a magical place of raw natural forces, where bubbling hot springs put on an erupting show for visitors.
Gullfoss is one of Iceland’s most beloved waterfalls, and its beautiful form combined with its sheer power is sure to touch something within everyone who stands in its presence.
Snowmobiling on a glacier in Iceland feels just as adventurous as it sounds and it is a great way to view a glacier: up close and personal. The glacier, in this case, is Langjökull, a white snowy desert with glorious views.
To top it all off, you will visit an actual ice cave to provide a real insight into the approximately 500-year-old ice of Langjökull.
Let us introduce you to these highlights of the unique wonders of Iceland.
