Itinerary for the Golden Circle Incentive tour
Departure from Reykjavik to volcano Hengill and Nesjavellir geothermal area where we can learn about how the enormous geothermal power is harnessed to provide Reykjavik with both hot water and electricity without polluting. From there it´s only a short drive to Thingvellir where the oldest parliament in world was founded and you can see the tectonic plates drift apart.
After Thingvellir we cross the mountain road of Lyngdalsheidi towards Geysir and Gullfoss where we stop for lunch. You can choose to a buffet at Geysir or the traditional Icelandic lamb soup at Gullfoss.
Seeing the geyser Strokkur spout boiling water 25-30 m high in the air is fantastic nature experience and the Geysir area has numerous other hot springs. After seeing Iceland’s most famous waterfall, Gullfoss up close and listening to its roaring thunder as it cascades 32 meters down the mighty glacial river Hvita we drive a mountain track to Iceland´s second largest glacier, Langjokull where you have the option of taking your group snowmobiling across the white plains of the glacier.
On the way back to Reykjavik we make a short photo stop at the Crater Lake Kerid. Once in Reykjavik we will drop you off at your hotel or a restaurant of your choice.
