Are you on vacation – why not indulge in the Golden Circle the relaxed way. We pick you up mid-morning, between 10:00 – 10:30 AM and take you to see all the beautiful sights on the Golden Circle, after the morning crowds have already come and gone. To top it off we will visit a natural hot spring pool where you can relax in the 38-40°C water, the Viking way, before heading back to Reykjavik.
On this tour we visit the three major sights on the Golden Circle; Thingvellir, the site of the World’s first Parliament that met each year outdoors, beginning in 930 AD continuing until 1798. The National Park Thingvellir is also a geological wonder, at this place two tectonic plates meet – the Eurasian and American plates. You will get the chance to see the edges of both plates and where they meet, with the possibility to take a short walk in between the plates! From there we drive to one of Europe’s largest waterfalls, Iceland’s pride, the beautiful Gullfoss and on to the geothermal fields of Haukadalur where you will be able to stand up close to the erupting geyser, Strokkur. The last stop is the hot spring nature bath which the locals named the Secret Lagoon because it has up till now only be known to few. A truly enjoyable tour combining two of the best things Iceland has to offer, great scenery and a warm relaxing nature bath.
