The Golden circle is one of the most popular sights in Iceland and well worth visiting. it is a fully guided tour in a minivan or similar.
On the way to the golden circle we will stop for the action part of the day. A 1-hour Buggy ride where you have the opportunity to get the rally feeling and the adrenalin pumping. Sitting side by side with your buddy we will drive dirt roads and tracks you can’t get by regular cars, an action not to be missed. We climb up to the highland roads with rough terrain and rocky roads. You might see Langjökull glacier, Mt Bláfell, Hagavatn glacier lagoon and more.
The sights on this tour are Þingvellir national park where the foundation of the Icelandic parliament began in 847 AD. It is a site of geological wonders as well. It lies in a rift valley that mark the crest of the Mid-Atlantic ridge. The rift is clearly visible and the movement of the tectonic plates pulls the island about 2,5cm every year. Þinvellir is an UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The mighty Geysir is a dormant hot spring but Strokkur erupts about every 4-8 minutes sprouting the hot water 15 to 20 meters high and sometimes up to 40 meters.
Gullfoss or the “Golden falls” comes from the glacier river Hvítá. As one first approaches the falls, the crevice is obscured from view, so that it appears that a mighty river simply vanishes into the earth.
It is essential to present a valid drivers license to drive the Buggy.
