Day 2: The Golden Circle
After breakfast at Miðgarður Hotel in Reykjavik, you will meet up with your guide at 9am and head to the country side.
The Golden Circle is explored, including a visit to the famous Geysir hot spring area, where Strokkur sprouts 60 feet into the air every 5-10 minutes.
Gullfoss Waterfalls and Thingvellir national park will be visited. At Thingvellir you will be able to see the Atlantic rift, where the North American and European Tectonic plates drift afpart at the rate of 2-6 cm per year.
Thingvellir is the place where the ancient parliament of Iceland was established in 930. It is an area of outstanding beauty and geological and historical significance. From Thingvellir we head to Borgarfjordur to the new luxurious Hotel Husafell, located close to the Glacier Langjokull and the Hraunfossar waterfalls.
