Classic Golden Circle Tour Iceland

he Classic Golden Circle Tour takes you from Reykjavik city to Thingvellir National Park, arguably the most important site in Iceland in terms of history, culture, and geology.

A UNESCO world heritage site, Thingvellir National Park is home to Iceland`s largest natural lake and the place where the tectonic plates of North America and Eurasia split and drift apart. Thingvellir is also the birth place of the Old Icelandic Commonwealth and the general assembly where Iceland`s most powerful leaders met to decide on legislation and carry out brutal viking-age justice.

From Thingvellir, the tour continues through an area of beautiful scenery towards two of Iceland`s greatest natural attractions: Gullfoss waterfall and Geysir geothermal area.

At Gullfoss waterfall you can take a short walk down a pathway and get right up close to this powerful waterfall and feel the mist of glacial water on your face as it cascades down into the narrow canyon.

Lunch break is usually taken at Gullfoss Cafe or at the service center at the Geysir area.

The Geysir area is home to The Great Geysir hot spring, after which all geysers are named. This area is an impressive collage of bubbling mud pools, hissing steam vents, and colorful algae deposits. It also features one of the world`s most reliable fountain geysers: Strokkur, that blasts a column of super heated water up to 20 meters into the air every 4 to 8 minutes.
