Midsummer Golden Circle
During early summer in Iceland the midnight sun does not set. Therefore we have 24 hours of daylight for a few weeks!
Experiencing Iceland at its finest, with few people around and nearly no cars on the road, we'll walk around beautiful Thingvellir National Park and UNESCO Heritage site. We'll get a close look at how the tectonic plates drifted apart and where the first settlers of Iceland founded the world´s oldest parliament Althingi (Alþingi) in the year 930.
The scenery is amazing and visiting this historic place at night gives it a strange mystic feel.
We also visit Geysir area to see the famous 'Geysir' which all other geysers are named after. There the lively geyser 'Strokkur' entertains us with an erupt every 5-10 minutes, reaching a height up to 25 meters!
After we've observed all the various geothermal features of the area we continue on to Gullfoss waterfall, the Queen of all Waterfalls in Iceland.
Join us for a unique experience of Iceland at night!
