The Golden Circle
USD185 per person
Explore the natural wonders of the Golden Circle, at Thingvellir National Park, Gullfoss Waterfall, and Strokkur Geyser.
Sit back and enjoy the scenic journey to dramatic Thingvellir National Park, Iceland’s only UNESCO Site, and revel in a walk between the continents. This park, which straddles the mid-Atlantic ridge, is the only place in the world, above sea level, where the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates meet.
Travelling to the fertile farmlands, you’ll experience the majestic beauty of Gullfoss Waterfall, ‘The Golden Waterfall’, and the fascinating hot springs, mud pools, and fumaroles, at the nearby geothermal area of Geysir. Then watch as boiling hot water repeatedly shoots 75 feet into the air, at the amazing Strokkur geyser.
After an Icelandic lunch in a local hotel, a display at the Hellisheidi Geothermal Power Plant will demonstrate how Iceland harnesses geothermal energy.
