Thingvellir National Park Your expert guide will pick you up in the morning to take you on a tour to visit some of Iceland´s most beautiful attractions.
First we visit the historical Thingvellir National Park. The Mid-Atlantic ridge runs right through Thingvellir forming an impressive rift valley where Iceland is drifting apart at the rate of 2 cm per year. Thingvellir National Park was accepted as a UNESCO world heritage site in 2004 and is a place of natural beauty and rich with history.
Geyser hot spring area After soaking in the inspiring history and natural beauty of Thingvellir you will continue your journey to the bubling geyser area with it´s numerous hot springs. One of the geyser is called Strokkur and erupts every 8 minutes in a magnificent display of natures power as boiling hot water sprouts 15-20 meters into the air but be carefull not to get to close so you wont get burned.
The Golden Waterfall Continue your adventure and visit the golden waterfall Gullfoss. Gullfoss is one of Iceland´s most impressive waterfalls and without a doubt the one who attracts most visitors. On a sunny day the mist from Gullfoss waterfall forms several rainbows adding to the pleasent sight of the waterfall.
