On the tour you will explore the great Golden Circle. On our first stop we retrace the footsteps of ancient Vikings by visiting the Þingvellir National Park. This is where the early settlers established the country´s first national assembly in 930 AD. Þingvellir is also where the American and Eurasian continental plates are dramatically pulling apart at an annual rate of 2 cm. 

From there we move on to see the world famous Geysir - where the ground trembles and steaming hot water spouts spectacularly skywards from the famous Strokkur Geyser every few minutes.

Our next stop is the dramatic Gullfoss Waterfall, a breathtaking sight to behold. Here a powerful glacial river cascades down 32 meters on two levels into a deep narrow canyon with a thunderous roar.

The last stop on our tour will be the Kerid crater, a volcanic caldera located near the town of Selfoss.
