A day packed with adventure and wonderful nature.

What to expect?

Our first stop on the famous Golden Circle is the geothermal area, Geysir, home of the original erupting "geyser" and his little brother Strokkur. Next we stroll down to Gullfoss, the undisputed queen of Icelandic waterfalls. Gullfoss, which literally translates to "the Golden Waterfall", is an amazing sight. The water flows 32 meters down three steps of lava rocks with breathtaking power and grandeur.

Our last stop of the day is the Þingvellir National Park. Þingvellir is a UNESCO world heritage site and the birthplace of Alþingi, the oldest existing parliament in the world founded by the vikings more than a thousand years ago. Þingvellir is also a place of many geological wonders as it lies in the tectonic rift valley between America and Europe. It is completely surrounded by beautiful volcanoes created from the ongoing tectonic drift.

After that you will be transferred to our rafting base camp and then off to a great "river fun" tour down the Hvítá river. The river has a perfectly balanced mix of beautiful, steep canyons and adrenaline pumping waves and rapids. On our way we pass through the magnificent Brúarhlöð canyon where participants have the option of jumping from a cliff into the river.

Afterwards we offer a nice hot shower and sauna before continuing on the road.

This trip has it all: stunning natural beauty, deep rooted viking history, amazing geological wonders, and a great rafting adventure!
