Full description
Your first stop will be Thingvellir National Park where the Icelandic parliament was founded over 1000 years ago. Here you can see how the earth is slowly drifting apart along the border of two tectonic plates. Afterwards visit the geysir geothermal area in Haukadalur where you can see geysers, hot springs, steam vents and eerie blue algae. Strokkur is one of the largest and most powerful geysers and erupts almost every 5 minutes. The final stop of the Golden Circle takes you to Gullfoss waterfall, which many consider to be the queen of Icelandic. Take a break and enjoy lunch at Gullfoss Café, before heading off road in jeep. The ride will take you to the highlands, rough terrain and glacier area of Langjökull (long glacier), known to be the second largest ice cap in Iceland (953 km2).  After an off-road ride, visit Faxi, a small but beautiful waterfall before driving back to Reykjavik.
