The motherland of Thingvellir National Park is an historic UNESCO site, where turbulent tectonic plates formed Iceland 24 million years ago.
The country of Iceland was formed here. The first meeting of the ruling chieftains was in 930 AD making Iceland’s parliament the oldest governing body in the modern world. As you retrace the steps of Viking history, study the bewildering geologic formations of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. You will be at the spot where the North American and Eurasian continental plates collide and will have the chance to stand on two continents at once.
Scalding hot water and steam clouds explode right in front of you! You step back and marvel at mother nature in the Geysir Geothermal Area.
Bubbling hotpots, steaming fumaroles and the noxious ‘Smell of Hell’ you are never going to forget, keeps you wandering around the Golden Circle in search of more.
Now, feel the energy of Gullfoss Waterfall and its awe-inspiring power flowing through an ancient valley. ‘The Golden Falls’ is the most spectacular waterfall in Iceland, afterall, it does shine gold from the glacier waters.
The Golden Circle is Iceland’s most famous visitor route and for very good reasons. It’s spectacular and your guide will run this private tour counter to the coach tours, so you can also find solitude amid the region’s splendour.
