Full Day - Golden Circle Tour
We will start our visit in Þingvellir National Park, a remarkable geological and historical site. The beautiful canyon running through the park is actually the meeting point of the two of earth’s tectonic plates. Þingvellir is the site where the oldest democratic Parliament in the world was founded in 930 AD. From here we will drive to Kerid, which is a volcanic crater thought to be around 3000 years old. Next stop is by the beautiful Gullfoss, the golden waterfall, where thousands of tons of icy glacial water thunder down into a deep canyon. Only a few minutes drive from Gullfoss is the famous Great Geysir. There you will see one of the most active geysers in the world, Strokkur, spouting up to 30 meters. At the geothermal area of Hengill, you will visit the high modern pure nature geothermal plant. Here the students will learn how the Icelanders use the pure energy to produce heating and electricity.
Full day - South Shore Adventure.
Today you will be travelling through farmlands of the south shore and observing the majestic mountains towering over the coast. You will have a frequent view of mountains, including snow-shrouded Hekla, the country’s most active volcano and the towering, ice capped strato volcano Eyjafjallajokull. We drive through the region where one of the best known of the Icelandic classical sagas, Njal’s Saga, is set. You will stop at the spectacular waterfalls Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss. Weather permitting you will visit Dyrholaey, a magnificent rocky headland with sheer cliffs, to the beautifully-located village of Vik. Vik are Reynisdrangar rocks – 66 metres above sea level at their highest. En-route back there may be the opportunity to visit Myrdalsjokull glacier, strictly subject to weather and road conditions and under the discretion of your guide.
