Description

The first stop on this adventure is the Geothermal Park & Bakery in Hveragerði, where the impressive Eilífur Geyser erupts every 15-20 minutes. Stroll through the park's pathways surrounded by bubbling hot springs, giving you a taste of Iceland's geothermal wonders. Treat yourself to hverabrauð, the sweet geothermal bread baked fresh in the on-site bakery. Next is theKerið volcanic crater, known for its dramatic red earth. With a width of 270 meters and a depth of over 55 meters, this crater is a sight to behold. What makes it even more enchanting is the lake nestled at the bottom, adding a touch of magic to the landscape. Plunge into the depths of this almost 14-meter-deep lake and immerse yourself in its beauty. Next, prepare to be amazed by the majestic Gullfoss falls. This double-drop waterfall cascades over 30 meters, creating a mesmerizing spectacle of endless sheets of spray. On sunny days, the mist from the waterfall forms gigantic rainbows that wrap around the falls, adding a touch of wonder to the experience. Continue your journey to the Haukadalur Valley, home to the famous Strokkur and Geysir. While Geysir itself is now dormant, Strokkur steals the show with its impressive eruptions. Every 5 to 10 minutes, Strokkur shoots a column of water up to 20 to 30 meters into the sky, leaving spectators in awe of its power and beauty. As you venture further, you'll arrive at Thingvellir National Park, a place of great historical and geological significance. This national treasure lies within the belt of volcanic activity and fissures that traverse Iceland, marking the junction of the American and Eurasian tectonic plates. Standing here, with your right foot in Europe and your left foot in America, you'll feel a unique connection to the Earth's geological forces. But the adventure doesn't end there. At the end of the day, the bus will take you on a scenic route towards the Whale Fjords, where you'll discover the hidden gem of Hvammsvik Hot Spring. This tranquil oasis offers the perfect fusion of geothermal water sourced from 1400 meters underground and the rejuvenating seawater from the nearby Atlantic Ocean. The harmonious blend of these waters creates a steady stream that flows between pools, cascades over their edges, and eventually returns to the ocean. This natural cycle ensures exceptional water quality and cleanliness, providing you with a truly rejuvenating experience. Included in your admission is your first drink of choice, allowing you to savor the moment while taking in the breathtaking views. Additionally, towel rental is available, ensuring your comfort throughout your visit. Don't miss this extraordinary opportunity to explore the Golden Circle's wonders and indulge in a blissful soak in geothermal pools, all while surrounded by the awe-inspiring beauty of the Whale Fjord. It's a journey that will leave you with unforgettable memories and a renewed sense of wonder for the natural world.
