    On this amazing one day adventure, you get to explore the main sights from The Golden Circle Route, and to bathe in the magnificent natural geothermal pool The Secret Lagoon. This tour offers you a taste of what Iceland has to offer in just one day.

    Our guide will pick you up from your accommodation in Reykjavik. We then start our journey by heading to Thingvellir National Park. Thingvellir is a UNESCO world heritage site because of its historic significance. The Icelandic parliament was established in Thingvellir in 930 AD, making it the world’s first parliament. Thingvellir is not only known because of its significant history, it is also known for its geology. Thingvellir is where the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates meet. At Thingvellir, you can visibly see where the two tectonic plates are drifting apart, but each year they drift around 2.5 cm apart. Thingvellir is filled with beautiful landscapes as it has some waterfalls, a lake, and much more to explore.

    Our next stop is at Geysir Geothermal Area. The whole area has a surface of approximately 3km2 and it is extremely stunning. The geothermal field is named after Geysir, the oldest geyser in the area and the most well-known geyser in Iceland. At this location you can also find the amazing geyser Strokkur. Strokkur is the most energetic spouting spring in Iceland. It spouts water around 10-20 meters in the air every few minutes. It’s truly a magnificent sight. More about Geysir Geothermal Field.

    Gullfoss Waterfall or The Golden Waterfall is our next stop. Gullfoss Waterfall flows from the glacier river Hvita. The massive amount of water flowing down the waterfall comes from Iceland’s second largest glacier, Langjokull. If you stand close enough to the waterfall you can feel the ground trembling beneath your feet, and you get mist from the waterfall on your face, it’s so refreshing! We then continue to another great waterfall, Faxi. Faxi Waterfall is a smaller waterfall, but truly beautiful. Faxi is surrounded with the beautiful Icelandic nature, and it is the perfect place to make a short stop.

    After seeing some of Iceland’s most stunning waterfalls, we head to the Secret Lagoon. The Secret Lagoon is a natural hot spring pool located in a geothermal area in the small village Fludir. (The locals call it Leynilaugin.) The steam coming from the ground and the beautiful Icelandic nature surrounding the Secret Lagoon makes it a unique and wonderful experience to go for a swim. Sometimes you can see geysers erupt in the area while you relax in the pool. Truly magnificent!

    Our last stop of the day is at Kerid Crater Lake. Kerid is an old cone volcano that erupted and emptied its magma reserve. The cone later collapsed and the crater lake formed. The water in the crater lake is a beautiful blue color, and the area around the crater lake is very stunning too. Red volcanic rock and colorful moss surround the crater lake, creating a beautiful area to explore. It once served as a concert stage but the Icelandic singer Bjork sang there on a floating wooden platform back in 2000. After a great day of exploring Iceland, our guide will drop you off at your accommodation in Reykjavik.
