From there you go to the Þingvellir National Park, where the Icelandic parliament Alþingi was founded in the year 930 AD. Þingvellir is geologically remarkable, and the tectonic plate boundaries form a breathtaking scenery.
From there you continue to the beautiful waterfall Gullfoss, where you can walk so close to the edge that you might feel the mist of the glacial water on your face. The lunch break is usually at the Gullfoss Cafe or alternatively at the Information Center at Geysir. Please note that lunch is not included in the tour but can be bought on site or you can take it with you.
From Gullfoss Cafe the journey continues towards the geothermal area around the incredible spouting hot springs of Geysir and Strokkur.

Your first stop will be at Thingvellir National Park which is one of Iceland’s most significant historical sites. From Thingvellir you head along mountain tracks to Geysir hot spring area and Gullfoss waterfall (“the Golden waterfall”). What makes this Golden Circle tour special is that you travel by Super Jeep. A Super Jeep is originally a standard truck/SUV or van that is modified according to strict regulations in Iceland. It is basically an especially equipped 4×4 vehicle with very large tires (36-46 inch or 95-120 cm tall) that is designed appositely to face Icelandic demanding terrains and unpredictable weather both in winter and summer.
Next it will be time to kick the action into higher gear to get even closer to Iceland’s nature and go for a one hour snowmobiling tour at/near Langjökull area, Iceland’s second largest glacier.
This 6-hour guided coach tour includes some of Iceland’s nature highlights and covers about 300 km, looping from Reykjavik into central Iceland and back. The Golden Circle includes the ‘Big Three’ – Gullfoss waterfall, Geysir hot springs and Þingvellir National Park. The tour starts with a drive inland to Þingvellir National Park where you will experience one of the most outstanding landscapes in the country. The area is surrounded by mountains and encompasses a vast lava plain of green moss and wild flowers. Þingvellir is also where the world’s oldest parliament was founded in the year 930. In 2004 the site of Þingvellir was inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. From the national park the journey continues to Gullfoss, the ‘Golden Waterfall’, which is the most famous of the country’s many waterfalls and to Geysir geothermal area, with many bubbling hot springs and spouting geysers.
On this tour, you will go to the Langjökull glacier, deep inside the glacier, which is one of the largest man made ice caves.
On your way to the glacier, you will stop at the most commanding hot spring in Europe: “Deildartunguhver”, and the beautiful Hraunfossar waterfalls, which is a series of waterfalls formed by creeks streaming out of a lava field.
You will have a lunch break at the Húsafell Bistro before you go on the glacier vehicle.
The caves are made of a system of tunnels and chambers, that spring approximately 300 meters into the ice cap, towards a natural ice cave in the middle of the glacier.
Going into the glacier gives you a chance to experience the unique chambers and to walk over a special man-made ice bridge. While walking further into the tunnel, you notice that the ice gets older and the colour changes to deep-blue.
Always have been dreaming about getting married in a glacier? There is even a little ice chapel in the glacier.
Do not forget to bring your swimsuits and towels, since the tour will end at the thermal pool in Húsafell.

Hunting the northern lights from the ocean is an amazing experience; sailing away from the coastline of Reykjavik and seeing the aurora borealis out on the North-Atlantic ocean with beautiful mountains and the city lights in the background is something you won’t forget.
