This is the most popular day tour route in Iceland. See geysers, Gullfoss the golden waterfall, Thingvellir National Park, and the Blue Lagoon. We wanted to add something unique to your experience and that's why you will also visit the big volcanic crater called Kerid. The crater is 270m wide and more than 55m deep. There is a lake at the bottom of the crater, which adds to the magic of the place. The lake itself is almost 14m deep.Thingvellir National park is the national shire of all Icelanders. It lies within the belt of volcanic activity and fissures which pass across Iceland. It is a part of the mid-Atlantic ridge, the junction between the American and Eurasian tectonic plates. It is a nice feeling to stand with your right foot in Europe and the left one in America!You will also visit Geysir. The biggest geysers of Haukadalur are Strokkur and Geysir itself, which gives the others their name. Strokkur erupts every 5 to 10 minutes, throwing a column of water into the air to a height of 20 to 30 meters.Next it's Gullfoss, one of the most amazing waterfalls in Iceland. Witness the power of the water cascading down this incredible waterfall.You end the day at the Blue Lagoon arriving there before 5pm (17:00) for a relaxing time in the amazing hot geothermal waters. You will spend 2 hours in total at the Blue Lagoon before heading back to Reykjavik. Entrance to the Blue Lagoon is not included in the tour and must be purchased at own expense in advance to enter.
