Luxurious 8 Hour Private Tour of the Golden Circle & Secret Lagoon
Experience Iceland's most celebrated Golden Circle attractions on this private tour. Travel in a brand new Mercedes Benz V-class luxury, with an added stop at the relaxing Secret Lagoon, Iceland's oldest swimming pool.
This tour is perfect for those travelers looking for the VIP treatment and hoping to experience some added extras en route.
You will begin your day by visiting Iceland's only UNESCO World Heritage site, Þingvellir National Park, an area of immense importance for several reasons. First, the parks sit atop the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, an area directly between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. Second, in 930 AD, Icelanders formed the first democratically elected parliament in the world, thus birthing a nation.
The next stop is at Friðheimar eco-area, where you will learn about growing organic vegetables using geothermal heat and grab lunch. The theme of Friðheimar cuisine is tomatoes, in many different forms. And that's not surprising, as four different tomato varieties are cultivated in the greenhouses where lunch is served among the plants. It's an extraordinary food experience. Come and enjoy it!
After that, it's time to travel onwards to see the Golden Circle's two remaining stops. First, Geysir geothermal area, where it is possible to see the mighty hot spring Strokkur blast jets of warm water over 25 meters in the air. Second, the mighty and magnificent Gullfoss waterfall, known to be one of the prettiest features in the whole country.
Then you will have the opportunity to relax in the Secret Lagoon, Iceland's oldest swimming pool. The Secret Lagoon is surrounded by steaming vents, creating a unique and rewarding bathing experience; in this respect, the Secret Lagoon makes an excellent alternative to the more expensive Blue Lagoon Spa.
Finally, you will visit a volcanic crater lake called Kerið. The crater was formed about 6,500 years ago. It sits at the northern end of a row of craters known as Tjarnarhólar. This colorful natural marvel is oval, about 270 m long, 170 m wide, and 55 m deep: the depth of the water at the bottom varies between 7 and 14 m. Kerið lies in Iceland's Western Volcanic Zone, which runs through the Reykjanes peninsula and the glacier Langjökull.
