The Golden Circle
We start early with a 08:30am pick up from your accommodation. Leaving Reykjavík, we head off to Þingvellir National Park where we will walk along the fault lines caused by the rifting of the earth’s crust. Þingvellir National Park is not only beautiful but also historically important for Iceland. We will hear all about the major historical events and come to understand why Þingvellir is a UNESCO world heritage site. The next stop is Geysir where we will experience the enormous eruptions of boiling hot water. We close the Golden Circle by visiting Gullfoss, the golden waterfall.
After a full day of sightseeing, we drive along the scenic South Coast to the cozy, farm stay guesthouse, where we will spend the next three nights. The guesthouse is on a sheep farm by the majestic Mýrdalsjökull glacier with a great view of the nearby Eyjafjallajökull glacier.
If conditions allow, we head out in the evening to hunt down the extraordinary northern lights.
