Let’s join us on a day tour, the Golden Circle Tour with River Rafting experience. This combo tour is ideal for travelers to do two activities in one day. The Golden Circle day tour will show you the main highlights of Iceland, the National park Þingvellir, Geysir, and Gullfoss waterfall. You will be taken to the Hvítá River, where you will have two hours to do the Rafting expedition. After this experience, you will be taken to the hotel.
The tour will start with a short drive from the city to Thingvellir National Park. In this dramatic rift valley, where the American and Eurasian tectonic plates are pulling apart from each other along the Mid-Atlantic Ridge you can stand on two continents simultaneously. Thingvellir was also Iceland’s first parliament. For hundreds of years, the Vikings of Iceland came here each summer for festivals and settled their disputes. The “Law Rock” and the “drowning pool” saw rough justice delivered for thieves and murderers.
As we head deeper into the highland of Iceland, the next stop is Geysir, the most impressive sight in the Haukadalur “hot spring” area. Geysir is the Icelandic for “gush” and gave its name to all spouting hot springs. The actual Geysir doesn’t erupt very much now. But there is another gusher called Strokkur just a few meters away, which sends boiling fountains of water high into the sky every few minutes. Make sure where you stand while you wait to see the show, or you might get a soaking. Tips, don’t stand in the direction of the wind. One of the unique things is the strong smell of sulfur, which you will probably feel from a far distance.
Gullfoss waterfall is undoubtedly one of the most stunning and majestic sights in Iceland. It won‘t show you the soft and gentle side of Iceland, this is the really wild and rugged side of Icelandic nature. In clear visibility you will even get a glimpse of Langjökull glacier, its white brilliance meeting the sky high on the horizon. Listening to the thunder of wild water and feeling the airborne droplets of moisture in the air, you will know you are in the presence of a great waterfall the moment you leave the car park. Photogenic, glorious, turbulent, and mesmeric in any season of the year, Gullfoss is all of these and far more. For me, these falls are at their loveliest when the giant boulders they drop over are cloaked in a patina of shimmering ice, but always take care in slippery conditions. There can be ice within the waterfall but it never freezes. It is also very special in the bright Arctic summer light.
Join us on a memorable River Rafting excursion through the beautiful Brúarhlöður canyon and take in the stunning views that can only be seen from the boat. Our tour is an exciting experience, open to all age groups and skill levels. Whatever your ability, if you are looking for an unforgettable adventure – this is the perfect activity for you. This has to be added to your bucket list! Gliding down a glacier river is an experience that you won’t forget in a hurry! No worries about the cold – we will provide you with a wet suit to make the experience enjoyable and a life jacket to keep you afloat.
Pickup takes place between 08:30 – 09:00 – so please be ready from 8:30 at your pick-up location
We often make a stop for lunch around noon time, and it’s the time when you can find something to eat and have some snacks for the rest of the day.
