Day 1:

After we gather in Reykjavík, let's embark on an amazing journey Around Iceland - an adventure you won't forget!
We will start our day 1 with the Golden Circle - the most famous route in Iceland.


We will start our unforgettable adventure with Thingvellir National Park, a stunningly beautiful and historically significant site in the southwest of Iceland.

North American and Eurasian tectonic plates meet there, creating a unique geological environment. The two plates are constantly drifting a part. Thingvellir is also home to some of the world's most active geysers and hot springs resulting from the heat generated by the friction between the two plates. Combining these two plates has made Iceland one of Earth's most geologically active places.

Viking history in Thingvellir National Park is a fascinating topic to explore. Located in Iceland, Thingvellir National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is home to some of the most important sites in Viking history. The park was established in 1930 and is one of Iceland's most popular tourist destinations. Thingvellir is a great place to explore Viking history. Visitors can explore the archaeological sites, take in the park's natural beauty, and learn more about the history of the Icelandic people. The park is also a great place to take in the beauty of Iceland, with its stunning landscapes and unique wildlife.


After visiting the park, we will go to Haukadalur Geothermal Area, where we will find a Hot Spring Strokkur, which erupts every five to ten minutes, creating amazing photo opportunities and the famous Great Geysir - the geyser that has named all geysers in the world, however, has been dormant since the early 2000s.

The intense volcanic activity beneath the surface of the Earth creates Geysers in Iceland. The heat from the magma below the surface causes water to become superheated and pressurized. When the pressure becomes too great, the water is forced up through the Earth's surface and erupts in a geyser. The eruption is usually accompanied by steam, boiling water, and sometimes mud and rocks. The geyser's eruption can last anywhere from a few seconds to several minutes, depending on the size and strength of the eruption.


To end our Golden Circle most magnificently, we will go to Gullfoss. Gullfoss is one of the most iconic and beautiful waterfalls in Iceland. Located in the Hvítá river canyon in southwest Iceland, Gullfoss is a spectacular double waterfall that cascades down into a deep canyon. The waterfall is 32 meters (105 feet) high and has a width of about 20 meters (65 feet).

Today, Gullfoss is an extremely popular tourist destination. The first thing that strikes visitors to Gullfoss is its sheer power. The Langjökull glacier feeds the waterfall, and the resulting volume of water is immense. Visitors can take in the stunning views of the waterfall from the viewing platform at the top of the canyon or take a short walk down to the bottom of the canyon for a closer look. The area also has several trails, allowing visitors to explore the surrounding area and take in the beautiful scenery.


If the weather allows, we should be able to see the Northern Lights! The hotel we will be staying at is located far away from light pollution, which increases the chances of seeing them. If we don't see them tonight, we still have five days to catch them! The Northern Lights are only visible from September to March, depending on the weather.

We will spend our night in a hotel nearby.
