On this trip we will pick you up from your hotel and drive (if weather permits) the scenic route to National Park Thingvellir, passing the geothermal power plant of Nesjavellir, which supplies Reykjavik with a large part of its hot water.

At Thingvellir Lake we will take one dive through Silfra cathedral and Silfra Lagoon. If you do not dive, you might want to snorkel in order to experience the fantastic visibility in Silfra as well as the feeling of being in a crack between the American and Eurasian tectonic plates.

After the dive, we will have a hot cup of coffee and then head to the geothermal hot spring area - Geysir. Your guide will show you around and tell you some interesting facts and stories about the spouting geysers "Strokkur" and "Geysir" as well as the area. You will have time to get a sandwich at the Snack shop of the Geysir Center and visit the Multimedia Show and the Souvenir Shop.

Our next stop is the most photographed waterfall in Iceland - Gullfoss! It is a magnificent natural site and should not be missed by any visitor to Iceland. After a day full of impressions and experiences we will drive back to Reykjavik or wherever you stay. You will surely have no problem falling asleep after these special experiences!
