Description

Enjoy convenient travel with pick-up and drop-off service from your accommodation in Reykjavik. Meet your expert guide and set off on your Icelandic adventure. This thrilling trip will take you to the historical Viking heartlands of Thingvellir, home of Iceland’s first parliament and where you can see the wonders of continental drift. At Thingvellir, you’ll see for yourself how the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates are ripping apart, leaving behind gigantic cracks in the Earth’s surface. Meaning you’ll have a unique opportunity to stand on two continents at the same time. Your next stop on your Golden Circle & River Rafting tour brings you to Geysir. In this geothermal wonderland, you’ll see cascades of superheated water and vapor spouting high into the air every few minutes. Geysir’s name comes from the Old Norse word for “gush”. It’s now the name given to erupting hot springs all over the world. At Geysir, you’ll feel the dynamic forces of nature that shape the “Land of Fire and Ice”. Next comes Gullfoss, the “Golden Falls”, a two-stage waterfall that thunders more than 30 meters down into a narrow canyon, fed by millions of gallons of glacial meltwater from Langjokull. It’s another sensational stop on your Golden Circle tour, and if it’s a sunny day, you might find yourself wrapped in rainbows. The grand finale of the tour comes next – this is your chance to take an awe-inspiring river raft ride down the Hvita (White) River from Gullfoss. You’ll step onboard sturdy rafts, floating and paddling your way downstream for 4 miles along the Bruarhlod Canyon.There’ll be some adrenaline-fueled fast-flowing rapids to get your heart pumping too. Of course, we’ll provide all the kit and safety equipment you need.
