    The Golden Circle

    From Reykjavik, travel over the Mosfellsheidi heath to the dramatic Thingvellir National Park, which is Iceland’s only UNESCO World Heritage site due to its historical, cultural and geological significance. The Park straddles the mid-Atlantic ridge and is where the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates meet.

    On board, there is a comfortable dining room with a bar. There is also seating on the boat’s deck for those who want to enjoy close proximity to the spectacular Icelandic nature.
