Geysir Geothermal Area
The Geysir geothermal area hosts many colorful hot springs. One called Strokkur is a geyser, which erupts every 5 minutes up to 35 meters. It was named after “Geysir” the original erupting hot spring, that gave all the geysers in the world their name, however extinct today.
The melting water from Iceland´s second biggest glacier, Langjökull, falls into a deep canyon forming the majestic “Golden Falls”. On a sunny day, you can see the glacier Langjökull in the distance and enjoy a rainbow in the mist of the waterfall, an photo blockbuster waiting to happen!
Traditional Dairy Farm and Free Ice Cream
We visit the Efstidalur farm, owned by the same family since 1850. This Icelandic family-run business sticks to traditional Icelandic farming culture and focuses on cows and cattle breeding. You will be able to enjoy their tasty farm-to-table dairy and food products, see the stunning mountain view and observe the friendly animals, especially cows and cute calves relaxing into their stables throughout wide glasses while tasting the handmade ice cream yourself.
*Kindly note that the Efstidalur farm is closed this winter, therefore the tours are currently operating to Hraðastaðir. Over there, you will be able to meet Icelandic horses, rabbits, goats, and the infamous Icelandic sheep.

Few places in the world offer a better and clearer view of this massive geographic activity. The biggest natural lake in Iceland is also located at Thingvellir National Park and hosts a great variety of fish and bird life. Thingvellir is also an important place for Icelandic national history. as Icelanders founded here their parliament in 930 AD where the chieftains had their annual meeting every summer.
