ICELAND HIGHLIGHTS - GOLDEN CIRCLE - THE CLASSIC
Once we have done the pickup between 09:30 - 10:00, we head out of the capitol area of Reykjavik towards Thingvellir, our first stop of the day. Thingvellir is a World Unesco Heritage Site, a National Park, the site of the ancient Parliament and a tectonical rift valley. Quite a package! We spend about an hour in the area, walking in to the rift valley and trough the ancient parliament site.
The next stop will be at Gullfoss. Here we have lunch and enjoy the beautifull waterfalls. We will be there about one and a half hours before heading to the geothermal area of Haukadalur where Geysir is located. At Geysir we get to see a multitude of hot springs. They are called Geysir, Konungshver, Blesi, Litli Geysir, Smiður and the star of them all the spouting hot spring called Strokkur. Strokkur erupts just about every five minutes and can go ca. thirty meters up in the air.
On our way back towards Reykjavík we pay a visit to a amazing crater lake called Kerið. This vulcano was active about 6500 years ago and over time it collapsed into what we can see as a beautiful volcanic crater with a lake inside today. From Kerid we are about one hours drive from Reykjavík.
