This is the most popular day tour in Iceland. Geysers, The Golden waterfall, Thingvellir and the Blue lagoon is a classic. We want to add something unique to your experience and that’s why we will also visit the big volcanic crater called Kerid. The crater is 270 m wide and more than 55 m deep. There is a lake in the bottom of the crater which gives it a little bit of magic. The lake is almost 14 m deep. Thingvellir National park is the National shire of all Icelanders. It lies within the belt of volcanic activity and fissures which pass across Iceland, a part of the mid-Atlantic ridge, the junction of the american and Eurasian tectonic plates. It is a nice feeling to stand with your right foot in Europe and the left one in America. Geysir – the biggest geysers of Haukadalur are Strokkur and Geysir itself, which gives the others their name. Strokkur erups every 5 to 10 minutes, throwing a column of water into the air to a height of 20 to 30 meters. Gullfoss is one of the most amazing waterfalls in Iceland.
In the end of the day we take you to the Blue lagoon for a a relaxing time in the baths.
