THE AMAZING GULLFOSS, HOT SPRINGS AND THE TECTONIC FAULT LINE
The Golden Circle tour is on of the most popular itineraries offered in Iceland. No wonder as in one day you will see a water spouting geyser, stand next to a thunderous waterfall and see the fissures and cracks of the great North-Atlantic rift which is continuously dividing the island. First on the menu is a visit to the site of the old Viking parliament at Iceland’s oldest national park Þingvellir. There you can see the marks left by the North Atlantic Rift and witness continental drift before your own eyes. From there on the road takes you to the Geyser, the geothermal area close to the waterfall Gullfoss. There, the hot spring Strokkur spouts water up to 30 meters in the air as you gaze at in from a close yet comfortable distance. The awesome waterfall Gullfoss is only 10 km away and again you will be left mesmerized by nature’s wonders. For lunch, we think the Friðheimar geothermal greenhouse should not be missed.
