The Golden Circle Afternoon

At Extreme Iceland we prefer to operate tours by minibus in smaller groups. This gives us the opportunity to deliver the personal service we feel you deserve.

Geyser erupts

The water usually reaches around 15-20 meters, but it can go up to 40 meters high.

Thingvellir National Park

To begin the Golden Circle route we start our tour with a visit to the National Park Thingvellir. The area holds great historical importance and has many remarkable geological features. The Eurasian and American tectonic plates meet here and Althingi (the Icelandic parliament) was formed on these rocks in 930 AD, making it the oldest parliamentary site in the world. The beautiful Thingvellir has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Golden Waterfall Iceland

The famous Golden Waterfall

Geysir Geothermal Area

Next up is the geothermally active valley of Haukadalur where we will see the famous Geysir and many hot springs. We will also see Strokkur geyser, which spouts every five minutes or so and projects steaming water to a height of about 60-100 feet. Around this time it should be lunch time so we will stop at a local place for food.

Gullfoss Waterfall - The Golden Waterfall

After lunch we head over to Gullfoss, the most famous waterfall in Iceland in the river Hvíta. It’s power is inspirational and we can stand so close to it that we feel the mist of glacial water on our faces.
