Thingvellir National Park
We drive from the KEF airport as soon as everyone has arrived, to our first stop at Thingvellir National Park, an area of great historical importance for Icelanders as our parliament was founded here over 1000 years ago.
You will be able to stand where Viking settlers proudly stood centuries ago. Gigantic rifts run through the park creating a stark and dramatic landscape. Gently moving tectonic plates run across Thingvellir, pulling apart by around 2 cm per year - here it is possible to stand on two continents at once!
The Geyser Strokkur
We travel through fertile farmland to the geothermal field of Haukadalur where you are able to walk through an area dotted with hot springs, steaming streams and geysers.
Strokkur geyser erupts every 5-8 minutes. Watch as the blue/green water bubbles up, suddenly spouting almost 30 metres into the air. Be patient with your camera and you will be sure to capture this amazing scene.
The Gullfoss Falls, cutting unforgivably through a canyon, truly is a force to be reckoned with. You'll have the opportunity to stand next to the amazing waterfall, watching enormous quantities of water tumble with fury into a deep, meandering canyon.
Gullfoss is more than "just" a pretty waterfall. It has an interesting story to tell. Your guide will give you the details ...
