Full description
This thrilling two day-tour begins with a scenic drive to Þingvellir National Park. You'll see the gigantic gap between the Eurasian and American tectonic plates and learn about how the world's oldest parliament ruled Iceland from here for a thousand years! Then we'll make our way to the colorful Geysir geothermal area. You'll see fountains of boiling water shoot high into the sky every few minutes while stepping between hissing hot pots and steam vents! Our next stop is Gullfoss, where you'll see a stunning two-tier waterfall thunder more than 30 meters into a deep canyon. The roaring "Gold Falls" create sheets of spray and rainbows on sunny days, so you'll get some fantastic photos here! Then you'll see the multi-colored volcanic crater at Kerið. Covered in red earth and velvet-green mosses, with a bright blue lake, it creates a fabulous mix of colors! We'll stop for the night at Hveragerði, a tiny South Coast town famous for geothermal greenhouses and sitting on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, where you can stand on two continents simultaneously! The second day begins with three wonderful waterfalls, starting at Seljalandsfoss. Glacial meltwater tumbles down more than 60 meters from a volcano in a narrow ribbon of water. You can even walk through a cave to see the falls from behind! Close by is Skógafoss, another spectacular 60-meter-high cascade famous for being featured in Hollywood movies and TV shows like "Game of Thrones". If it's a sunny day, you'll see rainbows here! The second day's highlight is a trip to Sólheimajokull for an unforgettable glacier hike. This easy-to-reach glacier tongue lets you see these fascinating ice formations up close! The tour ends with a visit to Reynisfjara, the famous black sand beach. A photographer's dream, you'll be thrilled by the endless volcanic sands, the stunning basalt columns, the mighty Atlantic waves and the jagged sea stacks of the Reynisdrangar. The perfect end to an unforgettable trip!
