The tour starts with a stop in Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site listing and the birthplace of the oldest existing parliament in the world. This is also where the gigantic tectonic plates of America and Eurasia have pulled apart and the resulting rift valley is right there before your eyes on the shores of Iceland's biggest lake.
The next stop is Geysir Hot Springs, the home of the one-and-only original geyser and Iceland's most iconic natural attraction. Here, the ground trembles and steaming hot water spouts spectacularly skywards from the famous Strokkur Geyser every few minutes. Now for a leisurely walk down to Gullfoss Waterfall, where a powerful glacial river cascades down 105 ft (32 meters) on two levels and into a narrow canyon with a thunderous roar.
Simply put, if you only do one tour in Iceland, then this should be the one.
