THE ITINERARY

Snorkeling in Silfra at the Thingvellir National Park

The first stop is Thingvellir National Park. It is the location for Silfra that has on a good day up to 100 meters underwater visibility! You can both touch America and Europe in this great clear water. This without any doubt one of Iceland most refreshing trip ever. Thingvellir national park is also great – a UNESCO cultural world heritage site having one of the oldest parliament in the world next to Almannagjá canyon. After snorkeling we will dine packed lunch before head out to the rest of the Golden Circle tour – with the next step being Geysir hot spring area.

Geysir hot spring area

Next we will stop – some 10 km away from Gullfoss waterfall – at Geysir – one of the oldest Geysers in the world. A site with many great geothermal hot springs, with Strokkur being the most famous today. A great highlight to see Strokkur go off every 5 minutes.

The Gullfoss waterfall

Gullfoss is the next stop. A beautiful waterfall that has been Iceland´s main attractions for decades. You will be able to get so close to the waterfall that you can feel the spray from the waterfall in your face. On our way back we will drive through the 1000 rivers mountain track on Hellisheidir mountain. In the evening we suggest you head out for a northern lights hunt.
