On our journey, we'll see Eyjafjalljökull Volcano by making a stop at Gígjökull outlet glaciers that stretch from the Glacier.

Day 3 - Þórsmörk – Golden Circle – Reykjavík


Thorsmork (Þórsmörk) 3 days / 2 nights


The Classic Golden Circle is one of Iceland’s finest jewels. We go for a walk at the beautiful Thingvellir National Park and UNESCO Heritage site where the two tectonic plates drifted apart and Vikings roamed around. The scenery here is amazing no matter the weather!

We'll get a close look at how the tectonic plates drifted apart and where the first settlers of Iceland founded the world's oldest parliament Althingi (Alþingi) in the year 930. We then continue to the geysers area with the famous Geysir which all other geysers are named after. Here we’ll see the lively geyser Strokkur erupt roughly every 5-10 minutes and reach a height up to 25 meters.

We’ll also have a look at the other geothermal features around it. From there we'll head on to Gullfoss waterfall, which many Icelanders call the Queen of all Waterfalls here in the land of ice and snow.
