Today, we will journey to the Golden Circle to explore some of the country’s best highlights. Along the way, we will stop for an extraordinary walk through a lava tunnel. As we walk through the tunnel, in the lava’s path from 5000 years ago, your guide will discuss the unique colors and formations. With 130 volcanos on the island, they control the ever-changing landscape.
Afterwards, we will explore Þingvellir (Thingvellir) National Park. This is the best spot to witness the Mid-Atlantic rift dividing North America and Eurasia. It is the only spot in the world to see a rift above sea level.
Continue onto Geysir, the location of the first geyser to be discovered in Europe, dating back over 1,000 years ago. Also known as the “Great Geyser” that spouts every few minutes. Afterwards, we make our way to Gulfoss, the Golden Falls.
Tonight, we will enjoy an organic dinner at a tomato greenhouse! This truly unique restaurant is located in an area that is warmed by the geothermal springs making it a hotbed for greenhouses. The greenhouse owners will walk through the facility, describing the growing process. Afterwards, we will dine right among the tomato vines! Our tomato-influenced menu offers the freshest ingredients.
This evening we check into the 360 Hotel, reserved exclusively for us! As its name indicates, the hotel offers a full panoramic view of the surroundings. The remote area is void of most artificial light, proving a great opportunity to spot the northern lights!
