Private Luxury SUV (up to 6 persons) Golden Circle and Secret Lagoon Our first stop takes us to Thingvellir National Park where the Icelandic parliament was founded over 1000 years ago. At Thingvellir you will see how the earth is ever so slowly pulling apart along the North-America and Eurasian tectonic plates and you will be able to stand where the Viking settlers stood centuries ago to edict national laws. Next, you will visit the Geysir geothermal area in Haukadalur where you can see geysers, hot springs, steam vents and eerie blue algae. Strokkur is one of the largest and most powerful geysers and erupts almost every 5 minutes. Next stop is the Gullfoss waterfall, which many consider to be the queen of Icelandic waterfalls, as it is both high and mighty and stumbles dramatically in a deep gorge. We then have a lunch break at Gullfoss Café,
The final stop is the Secret Lagoon a natural hot spring, located in the small village of Fludir. It is the oldest swimming pool in Iceland made in 1891. and its water holds at 38-40 Celsius (100-104 Fahrenheit) all year. It has magical surroundings with a small geyser erupting on the side.
