Day 1 Reykjavik-Thingvellir National Park-Golden Circle-Hveragerdi-Reykjavik(11329 km)
This tour will begin after guests have been picked up from their hotels in Reykjavik. The first portion of our day will be spent learning to ride famous Icelandic horses, used long ago by the Vikings in the region. Though small, these horses are sure-footed, docile, enduring, and extremely strong. After this experience, we will enjoy a lunch break before heading to Thingvellir National Park, the Gullfoss Waterfall, and the geothermal hot springs in the area of Geysir. On our drive back to Reykjavik, we will stop in the town of Hveragerdi. When we return to the capital, the tour will come to an end. Please see "Departure and Return" for more detailed information regarding pickup and drop-off times and locations.
Thingvellir National Park is an UNESCO World Heritage Site and the most popular tourist destination in Iceland. Thingvellir has unusual tectonic and volcanic geological features and visitors can enjoy a wide array of activities including camping, hiking, and scuba diving.
Iceland's Golden Circle is the country's most popular tourist route, featuring several of the top geological formations in the country, such as the geysers of Strokkur and Geysir, as well as the Gullfoss waterfall.
This waterfall in southwest Iceland is one of the country's most popular tourist destinations. It is a multi-tiered waterfall, which all empties into a crevice 32 meters deep.
Considered the first geyser discovered by modern Europeans, the eruptions of Geysir can send boiling water up to 70 meters in the air. Only 50 meters away is Strokkur, another famous Icelandic geyser.
Hveragerdi, located in the Southland Region of Iceland, is near the Hengill volcano and is known for its geothermal activity and numerous greenhouses. Tourists enjoy outdoor recreation, the Listasafn Arnesinga Art Museum, and more.
