Golden Circle Tour plus Sky Lagoon Description:
Þingvellir National Park is located in a rift valley where the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates meet. It is a site of great historical, geological and cultural significance and has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site. Þingvellir is the birthplace of the Althing Iceland’s parliament founded in 930 AD, where the nation’s most powerful leaders would meet to decide on legislation and carry out brutal Viking age justice.
The tour continues across an area of picturesque scenery to the mighty Gullfoss waterfall. Once there, you can take several paths around the two tiers of cascading water to explore several vantage points. Extra time is allotted at this location for a lunch break at Gullfoss Café, where food is available for purchase.
Next up is the home of “The Great Geysir” hot spring, which all geysers are named after. This area is an impressive collage of bubbling mud pools, hissing steam vents, and colorful algae deposits. Strokkur geyser puts on quite the show every few minutes blasting boiling water high up into the air.
Just outside Reykjavik is the Sky Lagoon, an incredible thermal spa where the ocean meets the sky at the edge of the world. It‘s based on using the best of Iceland from nature, beauty, wonder and warmth. The lagoon is perfect for rejuvenation and relaxation for mind, body and soul in a pure geothermal water.
While anyone of these stops makes incredible images for your Instagram feed, they also all have rich histories and fascinating tales, each told with their nuances by our knowledgeable guides. Touring the Golden Circle and soaking in the Sky Lagoon is an unforgettable way to experience Iceland’s natural wonders for your body, mind, and soul.
