Full description
Embark on a tour along the Golden Circle route which will bring you to the most famous historical and natural attractions of Iceland. Start the tour with pickup from Reykjavik and travel to the Nesjavellir geothermal area, one of the hottest spots in Iceland, located nearby the Hengill volcano. At Nesjavellir, find the second-largest geothermal power station in Iceland, which serves the Reykjavik region with warming water.

From Nesjavellir, head to the Thingvellir National Park and drive by the side of Thingvallavatn lake, offering spectacular views of the landscape. The Thingvellir National park served as parliament ground for many centuries, from the time of early Viking settlers and up to 19th century. In the valley at Thingvellir, walk along the Almanagja fissure, the place where the American and Eurasian tectonic plates diverge and move apart.

Then, drive to Haukadalur, the valley of geysers, where the Strokkur geyser erupts every 5-10 minutes into the air, spewing out a mixture of hot water and steam to a height up to 30 meters. Next, visit the Gullfoss Waterfall with cascades of 11 and 22 meters of powerful water streams falling into the gorge.

From Gullfoss, visit the Friðheimar Greenhouse. The greenhouse is an excellent example of horticulture in Iceland, it is open for visitors, and you can come and enjoy a unique food experience at the restaurant, with tomatoes growing all around. After lunch, make a final stop for the day at Kerid Crater. This is a 55-meter-deep explosion crater filled with water, creating a lake whose steep circular slopes resemble an ancient amphitheater. On the way back to Reykjavik, travel through the Hellisheidi mountain pass and finish with drop-off at your accommodation.
