The all time classic tour visiting three of Icelands pearls of nature. Your guide will take you to the Þingvellir National Park, a rift valley where the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates meet. The UNESCO designated world heritage site and the birthplace of the Althing, Icelands parliament founded in 930 by the Viking settlers.
The tour continues to the Geysir hot springs, the namesake of all geysers. The area hosts an impressive collection of bubbling mud pools, colorful clear hot-water springs and the erupting Strokkur hotspring, spewing boiling water tens of meters into the air every 10 minutes or so.
The great Gullfoss waterfall. The 3-tiered waterfall is one of the most powerful in Europe. Picturesque scenery forms an impressive background for this majestic waterfall that cuts into the layers of lava.
