Reykjavik – Thingvellir – Geysir – Gullfoss – Reykjavik
Enjoy the beauty and wellness of Icelandic nature on a day tour around the Golden Circle, including a relaxing visit to Fontana Geothermal Baths.
The tour starts with a visit to Thingvellir National Park, where the Icelandic parliament Althingi was established in 930 AD. This fantastic and diverse national park is also home to one of the only places on Earth where you can see the continental divide between the Americas and Europe.
The next stop is Lake Laugarvatn and Fontana Geothermal Baths. Before enjoying a soak in the thermal pools and relaxing in the natural steam rooms, you’ll get the chance to visit a geothermal bakery located next to Lake Laugarvatn.
For many this is the highlight of the tour; to see where rye bread, which has been baking in a pot in the warm sand, is dug out, and later to get a taste of the bread with delicious Icelandic butter.
After a relaxing bath, we continue to Gullfoss waterfall and the spouting hot spring area around Geysir and Strokkur in Haukadalur Valley.
Then we return to Reykjavik.
