Golden Circle is the most popular route in South Iceland for a good reason. Following its path you will discover the beauty and magnificence of unique icelandic nature and culture in three acts.First we’ll take you to Pingvellir National Park. It is the site of a rift valley that marks the crest of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge and the Þingvallavatn, the largest natural lake in Iceland. Here you’ll get to stand on the touching point of Eurasian and North American Plates, where on-going tectonic movement is easily spotable. This geological energy somehow contributed to socio-cultural innovation as this area was also a first home to Alþingi, world’s oldest extant parliamentary institution. From 930 a.d. until 1799 a.d. Icelanders general assembly was gathering here to decide on common issues.
Second, we invite you to see a playful water spectacles performed by fountain geysers Stokkur and Geysir. The first one is the biggest in Iceland, shooting up water stream of 3m in diameter and 30m high, every 5 to 15 minutes. This part of a trip will be concluded by visiting a gorgeous Golden Waterfall – Gullfoss.
After a day of exciting activities you are able for optional visit in Fontana SPA, where your can deeply relax. There you’ll find a number of facilities that truly treat your body and mind. Gufan are steam rooms that have been built over a natural hot spring or perhaps you prefer a finnish-style sauna called Ylur? In the outdoor area you can take a dip in rejuvenating mineral baths that vary in depth, size and temperature. You can also cool down in a lake and rest on the black sand beach.
By the time we come back to Reykjavik you will feel well-rested and pleased after a day full of unique and memorable adventures.
