All about the trip
This tour will show you the best spots of Iceland.
Our first destination is Thingvellir, where the oldest parliament in the world was founded in 930 AD. It is one of two sites on Earth where it is possible to observe the effects of two major tectonic plates drifting apart. There you will see the beautiful waterfall Oxararfoss. Thingvellir National Park and the waterfall Oxararfoss have been designated UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Next, we will drive on to the valley Haukadalur where we will see the world famous geothermal area where the geyser Strokkur erupts every few minutes. The usual height of the water eruption is 15-20 meters, but it can sometimes reach a height of around 40 meters. After enjoying this phenomenal area with all its beauty, we can get lunch at a local restaurant. You are welcome to bring your own picnic lunch if you wish.
After our lunch break, we will visit the Gullfoss, one of Iceland’s most spectacular waterfalls. The flow of water in this massive river Hvitá is on average 140m³/s in the summer, but around 80m³/s in the winter so you will really feel the tremendous power of the waterfall when standing close to it. From Gullfoss, we will head back to Reykjavik again.What Wikipedia Says
