Thingvellir National Park

Thingvellir National Park is our first stop. Thingvellur National Park is not only a site of geological wonder, located on the intersection of the North American and Eurasioan tectonic plates, but also a place charged with history,Thingvellur site of the world’s first Parliament that met each year outdoors, beginning in 930 AD continuing until 1798. Thingvellir tells stories of geographical and political struggles, compromises and ongoing evolution. Thingvellir was accepted on the UNESCO World Heritage list for its cultural values in 2004

Geysir

The second stop is Geysir where you can see with your own eyes erupting geysers. The great Geysir stopped erupting in the early 2000’s but his “baby brother” Strokkur goes off every few minutes reaching an average of 15-20 meters into the air. At Geysir there is also a 4 nice Restaurants where you can get something to eat.

Gullfoss

The third stop is the beautiful waterfall Gullfoss (Golden falls) Europe’s second most powerful waterfall. The waterfall drops down in two stages 11 m (36 ft) and 21 m (69 ft) before falling into a crevice making it look as if it disappears into the earth. You can enjoy Gullfoss from different scenic points each giving you distinct view and photo opportunities of the waterfall.

Kerið

Next up is the great Kerið (English Kerith or Kerid) is a volcanic crater lake located in the Grimsnes area in south Iceland. It is one of several crater lakes in the area, known as Iceland’s Western Volcanic Zone, which includes the Reykjanes peninsula and the Langjökull Glacier, created as the land moved over a localised hotspot, but it is the one that has the most visually recognisable caldera still intact. The caldera, like the other volcanic rock in the area, is composed of a red (rather than black) volcanic rock. The caldera itself is approximately 55 m (180 ft) deep, 170 m (560 ft) wide, and 270 m (890 ft) across. Kerið’s caldera is one of the three most recognisable volcanic craters because at approximately 6500 years old, it is only half the age of most of the surrounding volcanic features. The other two are Seyðishólar and Kerhóll.
