After a good nights sleep at the hotel in Reykjavik, your driver guide will pick you up and take you on an unforgettable tour of the Golden Circle. You start Thingvellir National Park. The historical site of the oldest still existing democratic parliament in the world, founded in 930 and where the two tectonic plates meet. At Thingvellir it is clearly visible where these two tectonic plates are pulling apart up to 2cm per year. This is a very visual example of how the earth is changing. From Thingvellir the tour continues to the famous „Golden Waterfall“ Gullfoss. A very impressive two-step waterfall where the natural surroundings allows you to view the waterfall from up close. Just a few minutes away is the impressive Geysir. There you can witness the power of the earth with Icelands most active geysir, Strokkur, which blows hot water 20-30 meters up in the air every 5-7 minutes.
On your way back to Reykjavik it is possible to stop at Skálholt, a cultural and political center that has been the episcopal since 1056, or you can stop by the geothermal power plant, Hellisheiðavirkjun, that produces heat and electricity for Iceland. This is a perfect visit for those who want to learn about the production of renewable engery.
In the evening you will enjoy dinner at the hotel.
