This is one of the best version of the Golden circle that is offered in Iceland, We will start the tour by showing you Hveragerdi the capital of hotsprings, the town is positioned on an active volcanic zone where earthquakes are frequent thanks to the tectonic movements that rumble below. Our local guide will tell you the story of the town and show you hotsprings that bursted through the ground in the last earthquake that happened on May 29th 2008, with a magnitude of 6,3 on the Richter scale. We will also show you how we can use the heat from the ground, by cooking an egg in a boiling hotspring and taste a bread that has been baked in the ground for 24 hours.
After Hveragerdi and a nice refreshment we will visit Geysir and witness Strokkur bursting the boiling hot water high up in the air.
From Geysir we will work our way to Gullfoss (Golden waterfall) where we will explore this magnificent waterfall, standing on the edge of the waterfall and feel the power of the glacial water and perhaps the mist on your face.
There after we will visit Thingvellir our national park where the oldest parliament in the world is, the guide will hike with you through the area and point out some interesting stories from the area and his ancestors, the Vikings.
This tour offers great scenery for photographing.
