Among Thingvellir’s many attractions, the Eurasian and American tectonic plates meet and you can stand with one foot in each world !
The next stop on your schedule is a visit to the world famous Geysir hot spring site. Hot springs are an important part of Iceland’s nature and Geysir has become a symbol of them all over the world. Today its neighbor Strokkur takes center stage, erupting every few minutes and spouting hot water up to heights of 30 meters, creating a spectacular spectacle of nature. In the Geysir area, you can buy lunch or other food if you want.
Gullfoss, the golden waterfall, is the queen of Icelandic waterfalls. The incredible raw power and beauty will take your breath away as the water tumbles relentlessly for more than 30 meters through a rugged canyon.
Thingvellir, Gullfoss and Geysir form the traditional golden circle, but to add even more excitement to your visit you will also visit the volcanic crater of Kerid. The 55-meter-deep crater is over 3,000 years old and is a unique creation of Icelandic nature.
After enjoying the stunning natural sights, it’s time to head to the famous Blue Lagoon where you can relax in the natural warm water and enjoy the great facilities there. The Blue Lagoon is sold out most of the time well in advance, but since this tour includes Blue Lagoon Comfort entrance tickets, you can start expecting an amazing day in Iceland as soon as you complete your booking of the visit.
