This popular excursion introduces you to some of the best-known natural phenomena in Iceland.

We will visit the Nesjavellir power plant, a high temperature geothermal area situated in the picturesque landscape of Lake Þingvallavatn. From there we enter Þingvellir National Park, where the Icelandic parliament Alþingi was founded in 930 AD, which makes it the oldest known functioning parliament in the world. Geologically it is also unique as the American and European tectonic plates meet here. These continents are slowly drifting apart, which you will see clearly when you visit.

We continue to the beautiful waterfall Gullfoss (English: Golden Waterfall) and from there to the geothermal area around the incredible spouting hot springs of Geysir and Strokkur. We will then proceed to Skálholt church, the ancient seat of the Icelandic bishops. On our way back we we will travel through fertile agricultural areas to Hveragerði, a small and charming horticultural village.

Due to weather and road conditions we cannot guarantee visits to Nesjavellir in the wintertime.
