Same as the start point
You will be taken on a guided coach tour of Reykjavik’s famed Golden Circle.
The tour will visit the following places:
• Gullfoss waterfall: This is the queen of Iceland's waterfalls, tumbling down a deep gorge.
• Geysir hot spring area: You can walk around the world-famous Geysir area, a geothermal field where hot springs are in abundance, geysers explode and pools of mud bubble.
• Friðheimar Greenhouse Cultivation Centre: Learn about the magic behind growing delicious, pesticide-free tomatoes and cucumbers with the aid of the geothermal heat that Iceland has in abundance.
• Þingvellir National Park: This is the place of the most historic events in Iceland and exceptional beauty. Þingvellir is the original site of the oldest existing parliament in the world, the Alþingi. The Great Atlantic rift is clearly visible, a rift which is slowly pulling Iceland apart along tectonic plates.
The tour returns to the starting point after approximately 8 hours.
