What to expect

The Golden Circle tour allows visitors to get in touch with some of Iceland’s most famous and exciting natural phenomena. Your first stop is at the Thingvellir National Park 40 min east of the city. Þingvellir is one of Iceland’s most historic sites as it was here that Iceland’s first parliament was founded in the year 930 AD. From Þingvellir you will then head along gravel tracks toward the world-renowned geothermal area around the Geysir hot spring where you can witness gurgling bubbling water burst 25 meters high. This is the one spouting hot spring that all such phenomena on Earth are named after. From there you will continue on to Gullfoss, “the Golden waterfall”, with practically no limit to how close you can stand next to it. Gullfoss is a great sight with water rushing down three steps of lava layers exhibiting breathtaking power and grandeur.

The Silfra Fissure is one of Iceland’s most desirable snorkeling spots. On the surface, this narrow channel of blue water meanders through a giant lava field, beneath active volcanoes and sprawling glaciers, next to the founding site of the world's oldest existing parliament. Below, supernatural shades of blue, perfect visibility and incredible rock formations make up a magical sub-aquatic chasm. From the comfort of a warmly insulated drysuit, enjoy the feeling of ultimate serenity and weightlessness as you drift peacefully along with the lazy current, awe-stricken at the spectacle in the depths below! Frequently rated as one of the world's top ten dive sites, the Silfra offers up to 100 meters of underwater visibility and is located on top of the separation between Europe and America!
