Description

Golden Circle signifies a visit to three natural and historical attractions, Gullfoss (The Golden Waterfall), the hot spring area, Geysir, and Thingvellir National Park.
Your guide will pick you up at your hotel in the morning. We drive to the Geyser area, with Strokkur, a geyser that erupts on average every 4 minutes. Nearby is the magnificent waterfall Gullfoss, „Golden Waterfall“. After a visit to Gullfoss and Faxi waterfall, we will stop at Friðheimar, and have lunch in a greenhouse. Then we visit another beautiful waterfall, rarely visited. We drive to Thingvellir National Park, which is famous for it´s historic- and geological reasons. This is where the first democracy in the world was established, in AD 930. Öxarárfoss is a waterfall at Thingvellir.
