Get ready to do some damage on your bucket list with The Golden Circle tour. Feel the mist of the Strokkur geyser as it shoots water as high as 30 metres (98 ft.) up into the air...that’s the height of Brazil’s Christ the Redeemer! The adventure continues with a visit to one of Iceland’s most iconic waterfalls, Gullfoss (Golden Falls). Top it all off with Thingvellir National Park and Friðheimar, where you will learn how to grow fruits and vegetables with geothermal heat.
The Golden Circle tour allows you to visit some of Iceland’s most stunning sights, starting with the Geysir geothermal area where the Strokkur geyser shoots a column of water up to 30 metres (98 ft.) into the air every 4-8 minutes in a thrilling display of nature’s forces. The visit continues with Gullfoss (Golden Falls) waterfall, created by the river Hvítá, which tumbles and plunges into a crevice some 32 m (105 ft.) deep.
The Golden Circle tour also includes the historical and geological wonder that is Thingvellir National Park, where the American and Eurasian tectonic plates are pulling apart at a rate of a few centimetres per year. Additionally, the tour includes a visit to the idyllic Friðheimar greenhouse cultivation centre, where you can learn about the magic behind growing delicious, pesticide-free tomatoes and cucumbers with the aid of the geothermal heat that Iceland has in abundance.
