This our allows you to visit Icelands most popular day tour route, The Golden Circle, with some of Icelands most popular attractions such as Thingvellir, Geysir and Gullfoss.

This tour allows you to visit some of Iceland´s most stunning sights, including the historical and geological wonder Þingvellir National Park. There you can see where the American and Eurasian tectonic plates are pulling apart. Þingvellir was also the setting of the world´s oldest parliament. Þingvellir has been on the UNESCO World Heritage list since 2004.

The Geysir geothermal area is where the geyser Strokkur shoots a column of water up to 30 meters (98 ft.) into the air every 4-8 minutes in a thrilling display of nature’s forces.

The tour continues to Gullfoss (Golden Falls) waterfall, created by the river Hvítá. The river tumbles and plunges into a crevice some 32 m (105 ft.) deep.

We visit Seljalandsfoss Waterfall, a picturesque waterfall that youy can walk behind. You can find pictures of it in a variety of books, calendar and more from around the world.

Skógarfoss Waterfall is the next stopp and also one of the biggest waterfalls in the country with a width of 25 metres (82 feet) and a drop of 60 m (200 ft). Due to the amount of spray the waterfall consistently produces a single or double rainbow which is normally visible on sunny days.

Our last stop would be at the Volcano Museum at Þorvarldeyri where you can experience vicariously what it is like to live close to a volcano. Eyjafjallajökull consists of a volcano caldera completely covered by an ice cap.
