What to expect

While visiting Iceland, don't miss the famous Golden Circle route and its natural and historical attractions such as Thingvellir National Park, Gullfoss Waterfall and Geysir. The Golden Circle tour comprises some of the country‘s most iconic landmarks and places of natural, historic and scenic qualities. The tour takes you from Reykjavik into south-west Iceland through Þingvellir National Park, to Gullfoss waterfall and Geysir hydrothermal area.

Dramatic landscape, history and culture make Þingvellir National Park one of the most popular tourist destinations in Iceland. It is where the parliament of Iceland was first founded around the year 930, where laws were passed and sentences carried out. Tectonic plate movements have created spectacular scenery with enormous rifts and cracks slicing through the landscape and Iceland‘s lake that covers roughly 84 square kilometers.

Erupting hot springs, bubbling mud pools and multi-colored hydrothermal features are what draw people from all corners of the world to visit the area. Close by the two-tiered Gullfoss waterfall drops down into a narrow canyon offering visitors an up-close experience of the power and beauty of mother nature.
