Reviews on TripAdvisor
"We were picked up at our hotel on time. Our driver was informative and had excellent details about Iceland. Her name was Öydur/ Auður or something similar. She also spoke Swedish. The tour was counterclockwise and we got plenty of time at each stop. We were 10 people on the tour. A more intimate tour than going with the large tourist buses."
After pick up in Reykjavik we start the tour by heading to Thingvellir crossing the Mid-Atlantic Ridge that divides the tectonic plates, along a landscape with moss covered lava fields with volcanoes on both sides.
First stop is Thingvellir National Park. Here the settlers founded the first parliament in the world in the year 930-1845, when it moved to Reykjavík. In the drift valley you see how the two tectonic plates, the American and Eurasian drift apart, in average 2.5 cm per year. Here you have more information about Thingvellir National Park
Next stop is Geysir geothermal area. It is from the Icelandic word "geysir" that the English word "geyser" is derived. The geyser Strokkur bursts into the air every 5-8 minutes while other hot springs in the area are quiet but colorful. Here you have more information about Geysir geothermal field
Gullfoss Falls cascades down two huge steps 11 and 22 meters into a deep gorge. Gullfoss is the first waterfall in Iceland to be preserved as a local girl, Sigríður Tómasdóttir fought a brave fight against the authorities who wanted to to build the first hydro power plant by the falls.
From there we change path and leave the habitual way, as we go up to the highlands for a highland excursion. We make a quick stop at our highland base before continuing to Langjokull glacier, Iceland's second largest glacier. During winter time we wont be able to drive all the way to the glacier but we will see it clearly if conditions allow. But driving in the highlands, in a super jeep, during winter time is a unique experience.
And finally we drop you off at your hotel in Reykjavik after a tour that covered all the main sights of the Golden Circle as well as a highland visit in a 4x4 truck.
