Your guide will pick you up in the morning at your hotel and you will begin your trip by driving to Thingvellir National Park. Thingvellir is a place highly interesting from both geological and historical point of view. Here you can see the effects of the tectonic plate movements which has opened various cracks and fissures in the earth crust, and it was here that the Icelandic Parliament was founded in the 10th century.
You continue along the route of the “Golden Circle” with a visit at the famous geothermal site of Geysir where the Strokkur hot spring ejects its water column high into the air every 5 – 10 minutes. Numerous other small springs are boiling and bubbling all around.
Now there is only a short drive to reach Gullfoss, a spectacular waterfall which Icelanders refer to as the “golden” waterfall.
Before you check-in your hotel for this night you have the possibility to try out the geothermal hot water yourself by bathing in one of the many natural hot springs in this area.
