Probably Iceland’s most famous tour, the Golden Circle is the perfect mix of human and natural history. Walk through the beautiful Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the birthplace of the oldest existing parliament. Enjoy the geological features, the Rift Valley, and Öxarárfoss Waterfall that runs through it. Geysir Hot Spring area is a rare natural phenomenon where boiling water erupts 30 meters, every 5 minutes. Experience the magnificent and powerful Gullfoss Waterfall, a set of glacial river cascades falling 32 meters into a narrow canyon. Enjoy a very unique lunch experience at Friðheimar Sustainable Tomato Farm (lunch included). The Icelandic Horse is a very unique breed and we will stop to learn about them.

THINGVELLIR NATIONAL PARK AND ÖXARÁRFOSS WATERFALL
Thingvellir is characterized by tectonic rift valley and marks the rifting of the Eurasian and North American plates from each other. In 930 the Icelandic Parliament, the first democracy in the world, was established at Thingvellir. Thingvellir became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2004. Enjoy a short walk to Öxarárfoss waterfall.
STROKKUR AND THE GEYSER AREA
Did you know that the english name “geyser”, derives from the one and only in the Haukadalur area in Iceland? The geyser Geysir itself erupts boiling water up to 70 meters, but is almost inactive now. Strokkur, only few meters apart from Geyser, erupts on average every 5 minutes.
GULLFOSS, GOLDEN WATERFALL
Near Geysir is the Gullfoss Waterfall, which probably tops the list of being the most beautiful waterfall in Iceland. Enjoy the view from above and walk down the path to get close to the powerful waterfall.
Stop by the less visited Faxi waterfall, a wide waterfall that takes it´s name from the mane of a horse. Faxi i located in Tungufljót river, a river which is fed mainly by the nearby glacier Langjökull. This is a powerful waterfall and a beautiful extra stop on your Golden Circle trip.
