You can walk around the world-famous Geysir geothermal area, a geothermal field where hot springs are in abundance. You can choose to do the Golden Circle tour in a Super Jeep and add on a snowmobile trip. You also stop by the magnificent Gullfoss waterfall and visit Þingvellir National Park, the original site of the oldest existing parliament in the world, and where the Mid-Atlantic rift is clearly visible; a rift that is slowly pulling Iceland apart along tectonic plates. In Thingvellir, you can stand on a bluff and see the Mid-Atlantic ridge as it carves its way north and east into the island’s interior.

In the Evening you go on a tour to hunt for the Northern Lights.


Day 2

The Enchanting West

Embark on a small group tour (max 20 passengers), and visit the enchanting and unspoiled west. This area has been the playground of Ben Stiller´s Walter Mitty tour and the Games or Thrones have also visited for their adventure.
The highlights of this tour is the Hot spring Deildartunguhver, Reykholt a historic place where Snorri Sturluson author of the Sagas resided. Hraunfossar falls is a very special series of waterfalls pouring out of the lava. To crown the day you will be passing the magnificent crater Eldborg.
