The Golden Circle route is the most popular sightseeing route in Iceland for a reason. It includes visits to Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the most renowned hot spring in the world and probably the most beautiful waterfall in Iceland. In this unique 4×4 Jeep tour you will take a drive on Iceland‘s second largest glacier, in addition to the classic Golden circle tour.
After you have been picked up at your hotel, you will drive to Thingvellir National Park. This UNESCO site is where the oldest existing parliament in the world was formed. It´s not only one of the most historic places in Iceland, but also a natural wonder because of its location literally ON one of only two tectonic rift valleys in the worlds.
At Thingvellir, you can actually see how the continental plates of America and Europe have drifted apart. Huge canyons are the most clear manifestation of that, one of which “Peningagja canyon” is thought to make wishes come true when you throw a coin into it.
From Thingvellir we will continue to the geothermal area around the Geysir hot spring and Gullfoss waterfall (Golden waterfall). These attractions are two of the most popular ones in Iceland – and for a reason! Everybody is blown away by the natural power that is reflected in the spouting geysers and huge waterfalls.
The first half of the day features some classic sightseeing. But after lunch, it´s time for some action. The jeep will continue towards Langjokull glacier, Iceland’s second largest glacier, where we will try out our super Jeep vehicles off road: the ride will take you across glaciers and highlands, splashing through rivers and the rough terrain. This drive is only available for monster jeeps and you will be experiencing something absolutely unique.
After an off-road ride, we visit Faxi, a small but beautiful waterfall and then head to the amazing Kerid crater before driving back to Reykjavik.
