The highlights of this tour are Thingvellir National Park, a remarkable historical and geological site, which is located near the Lake Thingvallavatn, the largest lake in Iceland. The beautiful canyon running through the park is actually the meeting point of two of the earth’s tectonic plates. Furthermore, in this area the oldest form of parliament had met since 930.
Gullfoss, a two tiered waterfall where you will see thousands of tons of icy water thunder majestically down into a deep canyon.
Geysir geothermal area where bubbling hot springs and geysers are abundant. Here you’ll find Strokkur, the most active geyser in the area, spouting up to 25-30 meters every few minutes.
