Description

Travel safely and comfortably from Reykjavik to the Golden Circle on a day tour to some of Iceland’s most stunning sights. Start the journey with a visit to the idyllic Friðheimar greenhouse cultivation center, where you can learn about the magic behind growing delicious, pesticide-free tomatoes and cucumbers with the aid of geothermal heat, which Iceland has in abundance. Next up is the Geysir Hot Spring area where Strokkur Geyser shoots water up to 30 meters (98 ft.) into the air every 4-8 minutes in an impressive display of nature’s forces. The colorful landscapes, bubbling mud pools, and steaming geysers make this a truly memorable experience. Continue to Gullfoss waterfall, created by the river Hvítá, which tumbles and plunges into a crevice some 32 meters (105 ft.) deep. Here you are given the opportunity to stand next to the majestic waterfall and perhaps even feel its spray of water on your skin. The tour also includes the historical and geological wonder that is Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO world heritage site, where the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates pull apart at a rate of a few centimeters per year.
