See the spouting geyser and hot springs of Iceland's Golden Circle. Stand on one of Europe's biggest glaciers, and follow in the footsteps of Vikings down the lava canyon where the American and European continents drift apart in Þingvellir National Park.
What to Expect
Depart Reykjavík early to catch the morning sun, traveling by new bus equipped with computer tablets in each seat. Use the GPS-sensitive, in-bus audio guide (available in 10 languages) to learn more about the sights you will see, and stay connected with the on-board USB chargers and free Wi-Fi.
Visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Þingvellir National Park, birthplace of the longest-running parliament in the world. Discover where the great continental plates of America and Eurasia have dramatically pulled apart to create a rift valley, clearly visible on the shores of Iceland´s biggest lake.
Continue to Geysir Hot Springs to discover the home of the original geyser. Experience the trembling ground and see the super-heated water erupt skywards from the spouting Strokkur geyser every few minutes. Then, take a leisurely walk down to Gullfoss Waterfall. Hear the thundering roar of the glacial Hvítá River as it cascades down 32 meters on 2 levels into a narrow canyon.
Marvel at the pristine nature of the central highlands aboard a custom-made super truck. They can drive across the rough, snowy terrain thanks to their enormous tires. Drive to the snowmobile base camp at the foot of Langjökull Glacier. Then, ride across the eternally-frozen snow and ice fields of one of the biggest glaciers in the world on a guided snowmobile tour. Experience one of the last true wilderness areas in Europe, and indeed the world!
