THINGVELLIR AND ÖXARÁRFOSS
Thingvellir is characterized by a 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. Öxarárfoss is a waterfall at Thingvellir.
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 7 minutes.
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.
FRIÐHEIMAR GREENHOUSE FARM.
At Friðheimar greenhouse, tomatoes are cultivated, using geothermal heat and geothermally generated electricity. Inside the greenhouse they have opened a restaurant. The main ingredient in everything on the menu is, of course, tomatoes that are grown there. This is a very rare and unique lunch experience, not to be missed.
