ÞINGVELLIR NATIONAL PARK
Greet your new friends as our driver and guide welcome you on board our SuperJeep. Pick-up can be arranged at your hotel or accommodations in Iceland at 13:00.
Our first stop is Thingvellir National Park, home of Iceland’s ancient parliament. We’ll spend about 20 minutes walking through the park to experience the dramatic mid-Atlantic ridge where the 9000-year old lava field splits apart. This is a natural phenomenon demonstrating the continental drift between North America and EuroAsia. We’ll have the opportunity to view more lava fields on the hills above Laugarvatn as we head east on the mountain road Lyngdalsheiði.
Approaching the home of the great Strokkur geyser in the geothermal area of Haukadalur, you’ll likely be able to see an eruption every 5 to 7 minutes. Spouting boiling hot water into the air at heights of approximately 25 to 30 meters, we’ll stop here to enjoy one of nature’s greatest shows while exploring the hot springs.
We’ll also pause at the epic Gullfoss waterfall: a two-tiered drop
