Our first stop is Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site that was once home to Iceland’s ancient Viking parliament. We will take a walk in this area to experience firsthand the geological phenomenon of the Mid-Atlantic ridge.
From Þingvellir, we head east over a mountain road with great views of the rugged lava fields to Haukadalur, home of the great Geysir. There, you will see the reliable Strokkur geyser spout hot water as high as 15 - 30 m in the air. As we approach the magnificent Gullfoss, you will hear the roar of water cascading down the white colored Hvítá river. Next up, Langjökull! Driving on top of a glacier requires an expert driver and a modified 4x4 vehicle that can handle the terrain. Our super jeeps are more than equipped for the job. We stop on the glacier and hop out of the 4x4 to experience this natural wonder in all of its glory.
This unique trip lets you venture beyond the typical highlights and travel like a local with us.
Note: Þingvellir is sometimes written Thingvellir or Pingvellir.
