The National park, the geyser, waterfalls and much more.
The first stop is Þingvellir National Park, it is not only famous for its beauty but also widely known for being the first parliament in the world, which was founded by the locals in the 10th century. Since it is a private tour, you can spend as much time as you like, but having in mind that there are also so many other beautiful sights as the tour continues.
Next stop is the Haukadalur geothermal area, where you will find Strokkur hot spring. It is the most active geyser in Iceland that shoots hot water as high as 20-30 meter (65-98ft) and it happens approx. every 5-10 minutes. Besides it, you will also find a small cute geyser, which we call “Litli Geysir” its water is about 100°C (212°F), don’t try to touch it, it could burn you.
To cool down, we continue the drive to Gullfoss waterfall, the second largest waterfall in Iceland. In the summer, if you stand close enough to the falls, you can even feel fresh mist touching your face.
At this point, you are already done with three main attractions of the famous Golden Circle. However, our tour is not finished yet, we will be heading to the south to visit Fridheimar tomato cultivation farm, where you get a chance to taste fresh tomatoes or even try tomato-based dishes in the cozy greenhouse. All their products are locally grown.
Now, we are about to finish this tour, our last stop will be the crater Kerid which was an active volcano thousand of years ago. It was created by an explosive eruption, and it made up the formation that we are looking at today. It looks like a mirror facing the sky due to its color and stillness.
The private golden circle tour is totally at your disposal, our driver is able to swap the itinerary and make sure that you will see all the sights and take a lunch break at your requested time and place.
Overall, the tour will last for 8-9 hours.
