Description

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Thingvellir National Park, Thingvellir Iceland

Þingvellir is full of history and natural beauty. It stands between the North-American and Eurasian tectonic plates. This rift valley has a special place in the hearts of all Icelanders. It is where our nation was formed by the Norse Viking settlers when they established the oldest parliament in the modern world, Alþingi Íslendinga, in the year 930 AD.

At this stop there will be enough time to walk around and explore this natural marvel. This is the closest you can get to being in two continents at the same time. We will have the opportunity to walk in the rift valley, where the tectonic plates are pulling apart. We can observe this movement since under the national park the Eurasian and the North-American tectonic plates are moving apart by ~2 cm every year.

Þingvellir was designated as a World Heritage of UNESCO in 2004 and is unquestionably one of the most beautiful and historic places in Iceland.

In the area there are restrooms and coffee shops for visitors.


Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Gullfoss Waterfall, Blaskogabyggd Iceland

Gullfoss, is one of the most famous waterfalls in Iceland. It is powerful and tall. Through it the river Hvítá, which is a glacier river originating from Langjökull, plunges down this two step waterfall.

There are a handful of viewing platforms to observe the waterfall and above Gullfoss there is Gullfoss center where there are restrooms, a cafeteria and gift shops.

NOTE: The path leading all the way up to the waterfall is closed during the winter season.

Duration: 40 minutes

Stop At: Woolmarket Myrkholt, Myrkholt, Blaskogabyggd 806 Iceland

Myrkholt is a farm located in between Geysir and Gullfoss. The owners are welcoming and friendly, but the woolmarket allocates beautiful home made woolen sweaters, hats, gloves etc. from the neighbouring farms. All made with local wool by the local farmers.

There are a handful of horses, foals, sheep and during late spring there are new born lambs to see there as well. Its simply a wonderful stop to make, especially for animal lovers and children!

The horses especially are very photogenic and are always willing to strike a pose for their guests :)

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Geysir, Haukadalur Iceland

In Haukadalur there is a field of hot springs associated with the hot spring Geysir, but Geysir is one of the most famous hot spring in the world and used to be a geyser. The main display is the hot spring geyser Strokkur, which erupts approximately every 5 minutes.

Here we have time to walk around the area and this is also where we break for lunch. At Geysir center you find restrooms, gift-shops and the restaurant Glíma which serves for suitable for any pallet or diet.

Duration: 1 hour 15 minutes

Stop At: Secret Lagoon - Gamla Laugin, Hvammsvegur, Fludir 845 Iceland

The last stop of the day is the Secret Lagoon known in Iceland as the "Old pool" since it is the oldest geothermal pool on the island, opened in 1891.

There is nothing more relaxing after a day out in the Icelandic nature then end the day bathing in a warm geothermal pool. Bathing in geothermal pools is a big part of Icelandic culture.

The Secret Lagoon is surrounded by mossy lava fields and numerous springs. By the lagoon there is a little hot spring which erupts every 4-6 minutes.

The water is about 38 to 40°celcius (100 to 104 fahrenheit). Waking through the area is the best way to cool down a bit. It's nice to stand up and walk around the area on the walking paths which wind through the field of hot springs.

Remember to bring towels and swimsuits with you, but they can as well be rented for a small fee at the lagoon.

We stop in the pool for about 90 minutes.
