THE GOLDEN CIRCLE
Golden Circle tour. Pick up from hotel 8.30 am.
The Golden Circle is a fascinating experience. 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. If you choose the option to do the Golden Circle tour in a Super Jeep, then you can add a snowmobile trip on the Langjokull Glacier. The departure is from the the Gullfoss Waterfalls.
From mid-September to mid-April you go on an evening Tour to hunt for the Northern Lights..
