THINGVELLIR NATIONAL PARK
Thingvellir is characterized by tectonic rift valley and marks the rifting of the Eurasian and North American plates from each other. In 930 the Icelandic Parliament, the first democracy in the world, was established at Thingvellir. Thingvellir became a World Heritage Site in 2004. We walk to Öxarárfoss waterfall.
STROKKUR AND THE GEYSER AREA
You probably did not know that the English name “geyser”, derives from the one and only in the Haukadalur area. The geyser Geysir itself erupts boiling water up to 70 meters but is almost inactive. Strokkur, only a few meters apart from Geyser, erupts on average every 4 minutes. Faxi is a nearby waterfall and we stop there.
GULLFOSS, GOLDEN WATERFALL
Near Geysir is the beautiful Gullfoss Waterfall. Enjoy the view from above and walk down the path to get close to the powerful waterfall.
At Friðheimar greenhouse, tomatoes are cultivated, using geothermal heat and geothermally generated electricity. With a tropical climate inside, they have opened a restaurant, right there in the tomato field. The main ingredients in their menu are of course, tomatoes grew there. This is a very rare and unique lunch experience.
Unwind and relax in the Old local swimming pool in Flúðir, also called the Secret Lagoon.
