Tour description

At Þingvellir we’ll encounter the birthplace of the Icelandic nation, as well as the foundation site of the first Viking Parliament or Alþingi in the year of 930. It is still the oldest existing parliament in the world. Þingvellir is one of the spots where we can appreciate more clearly the forces shaping our planet as the tectonic plates spread apart creating new crust. We visit the visual Rift Between the Eurasian and American Continents

We come to Gullfoss Waterfall one of Iceland most beautiful sight. Not a coincidence that its name translates as the Golden Waterfall.

Geysir hot spring reputation precedes it as the gusher that gave the international name to the phenomenon “Hot Spring” doesn’t need much introduction. His neighbor, Strokkur, will blow steam high in the air few times per hour for our delight.
