Deluxe Golden Circle – Super Jeep Tour

This is the way we like it. By super jeep with small groups and some unique landmarks that we truly want to show you, besides the 3 classic stops of this popular route in Iceland. The Golden Circle has some of Iceland’s greatest natural phenomena and historical places.

After pick up in Reykjavik we start the tour by heading for the south coast crossing the Mid-Atlantic Ridge that divides the tectonic plates, along a landscape with moss covered lava fields with volcanoes on both sides. In the rift valley between the continental plates we have short stop at Hellisheidavirkjun (Geothermal Power Plant) where we both feel and smell the geothermal power.

Next we visit Kerið, a volcanic crater lake. First it was thought that Kerið was formed by a huge volcanic explosion (as is usual for volcanic craters), however research now tells us this was probably a cone volcano which erupted and emptied its magma reserve. The cone collapsed into the magma chamber and created the crater lake bordered by strongly coloured red volcanic rock.

We make a stop at still another spectacular waterfall,Brúarárfoss (Bruarfoss). We will do some hiking toward one gem hidden in the landscape: the waterfall Brúarárfoss (Bruarfoss). This captivating location is not so easy to find and sometimes not so easy to reach – but for sure worth it. It can only be reached on foot. If you’re coming in the winter, we might need to walk in deep snow, so it would be good to have good shoes and waterproof pants, or gaiters. Our tour leads us through agricultural and horticultural areas where the geothermal heat is used to heat up greenhouses so that fruits, vegetables and flowers can be grown all year round in Iceland.

Next stop is Geysir geothermal area. It is from the Icelandic word “geysir” that the English word “geyser” is derived. The geyser Strokkur bursts into the air every 5-8 minutes while other hot springs in the area are quiet but colorful. Here you have more information about Geysir geothermal field

The Icelandic highlands are a world of their own, and a super jeep is the vehicle that can take you there. When was the last time you looked 360°around you and saw no sign of civilization? We’ll go off road on F tracks into the highlands for a while, where you can experience a complety different and rather lunar landscape. We drive through an Icelandic forest upto a desert, we cross lava fields and sand area, and rivers and we end up with very good view to Langjokull glacier. Strange black and white world up there.

Gullfoss Falls cascades down two huge steps 11 and 22 meters into a deep gorge. Gullfoss is the first waterfall in Iceland to be preserved as a local girl, Sigríður Tómasdóttir fought a brave fight against the authorities who wanted to to build the first hydro power plant by the falls. Finally we reachThingvellir National Park. Here the settlers founded the first parliament in the world in the year 930-1845, when it moved to Reykjavík. In the drift valley you see how the two tectonic plates, the American and Eurasian drift apart, in average 2.5 cm per year. Here you have more information about Thingvellir National Park

And finally we drop you off at your hotel in Reykjavik after a tour that covered all the main sights of the Golden Circle as well the crater Kerid, Bruararfoss waterfall and highland visit in a 4×4 truck.
