All about the trip
Þingvellir is an unusual place in the world. Over thousands of years, the geological movements have formed what is now the land of the national park. An ancient glacier warmed up, a rift between the tectonic plates has been opened, a volcano extinct. All of this makes the incredible character of the landscape of this region. Nature is luxuriant, some flamboyant colors contrast with the dark ground. The park’s wildlife is also very rich.
Geysir and Strokkur are two perfect examples of the raw power of Icelandic nature. Geysir, a geothermal field located in the southern part, is a set combining hot springs, a dome and a volcanic cone, which are the remains of an old volcano. This volcanic area became active for about a thousand years. Geysir may reject a column of boiling water in the air, up to 70 meters. However, its eruptions are not frequent. Still, Strokkur is extremely active and never stops. Every 5 or 10 minutes, hot water rises up from it and could reach 30 meters up.
Gullfoss is the waterfall 32 meters high and nourished with the soft water of Langjökull glacier. The water rushes noisily in a large canyon. Some bright droplets, hanging in the air, decorate it. When the weather is fine, you will be able to go down next to the falls and approach closer to the gorges. Close your eyes and let yourself be taken away with the powerful sounds of the waterfall.
On the way back, we will explore Kerið fjords, considered to be a unique place, known and visited by a few people. These fjords are the longest ones in the southern part of the country and are bordered with a lot of waterfalls. With a little chance, you can observe one of these enigmatic animals.
After an exciting day of emotions and explorations, we offer you to relax in the warm water (38-40°C) of natural thermal pool known as The Secret lagoon. From there, throughout the year, you can also observe small geyser eruptions and during winter, you will have a chance to observe the wonderful phenomena of northern lights.
