Your journey will lead you along Iceland's Golden Circle, a route looping from Reykjavik into central Iceland and back that’s famous for its stunning sights. Head to the geothermal area of Geysir and witness how the ground gurgles and bubbles, and see heated water escaping from the ground with enormous force. Learn how this location serves as the original name-giver of the erupting springs.
Listen to your local guide’s stories about the area as you head farther along the Golden Circle to Gullfoss, the undisputed pinnacle of Icelandic waterfalls. Appreciate the breathtaking power and beauty as water rushes down three layered steps formed by lava.
Stop finally at UNESCO World Heritage-listed Þingvellir National Park. One of the most popular attractions in the country, Þingvellir boasts incredible sights and is the birthplace of one of the oldest parliaments in the world, which still exists today. It is the site where the great tectonic plates of America and Europe meet, creating stunning rifts, fissures and canyons that cross over the region -- a picturesque sight perfect for photo opportunities!
After your day trip, enjoy a relaxing drive back to Reykjavik.

All I can say is cold! We ate on arrival and relaxed until food had settled then the fun began. Cold and wet wetsuits yuk. Take under layers not cotton though. Guide was very playfully fun and knowledgeable about the area. Was a bit to cold for me but I would do it again. Be prepared to fall in. Was a little scary but safety is very much their priority.
