We are picked up by a private coach with an English-speaking guide and we head out to explore the Golden Circle.  We drive to Þingvellir National Park and stop for a little while before heading to Gullfoss waterfall and Geysir.

Þingvellir national park
The point on Earth’s surface where the North Atlantic ridge splits the two geological continents of North America and Eurasia. Þingvellir is one of UNESCO World Heritage sites and throughout the centuries, some of the most significant events in Iceland´s history have taken place there. For most Icelanders, this is the country’s most sacred place. But first and foremost, Þingvellir National Park is known as one of the most beautiful areas in Iceland.

Gullfoss waterfall
It falls 32 meters in two stages, with water coming from the glacial river Hvítá, which has its source underneath the glacier Langjökull, and flows 133 kilometers into the Atlantic Ocean. The stop at the waterfall is around 30 min

Geysir area
Is probably the world’s most famous hot spring. One of the greatest natural attractions of Iceland, where we will find Strokkur, which erupts at regular intervals every 10 minutes or so, and its white column of boiling water can reach as high as 20-30 meters is a stunning sight to be seen. The stop at the area is around min

From the Geysir area we will head to the unique location of Friðheimar greenhouse were we will get to know how the power of the nature makes it possible to grow tomatoes all year around in Iceland and of course it would be needed to taste the freshest bloody Mary around before heading back to Reykjavík.

Estimated time in Reykjavík between 20:00 – 20:30
