This classic Reykjavik excursion encompasses the "Big Three" geysers of Gullfoss, Geysir and Thingvellir. They are collectively known as the Golden Circle and provide a look at some of the scenic wonders for which Iceland is justly renowned.
Upon leaving Reykjavik, you will head across vast lava fields to the hot spring community of Hveragerdi where geothermal water has been used to build up an extensive greenhouse industry. Continuing on, you will pass through the fertile farmland off Iceland's south, to the Gullfoss waterfall, reportedly Iceland's most beautiful. Following a stop at the falls, you will re-board your coach and make the short journey to Haukadalur, where a stop is made at the Geysir geothermal area with its multitude of hot springs. The most active one, Strokkur, spouts every few minutes.
Before heading back to Reykjavik, you will be treated to a buffet lunch at a local restaurant and then it's on to your final stop at the Thingvellir National Park. This wonderful Park is a UNESCO site as well as a place of tremendous interest as a primary location of both Iceland's geological and historical heritage.
Please note: The tour includes a moderate amount of walking and is available to wheelchair guests who have a non-motorized collapsible wheelchair, can make their own way on and off the coach and have a companion to assist them. Those with mobility concerns are cautioned to evaluate their personal level of ability and stamina. Most of the sights can be viewed from the coach. Warm, weather appropriate clothing and flat, comfortable walking shoes are suggested. The order of the sites viewed or visited may vary.
