Full description
Our first stop is Hveragerði, a town surrounded by geothermal areas where people work in the energy industry with new technologies. Next stop is Kerið, one of several volcanic craters in the Western Zolcanic Zone. We will also visit Skálholt church, a historical site which offers a peaceful backdrop as our guide informs you about the history of the area. Next, you will visit the Geysir area in Haukadal where you can see the geysers, hot springs, steam vents, and creepy blue algae. Churn in particular is one of the largest and most powerful geysers and erupts almost every 5 minutes. Our last stop takes us to Thingvellir, where the Icelandic parliament was established - the first of its kind in the world in AD1000. At Thingvellir, you will see how the earth is ever so slowly pulled apart by the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates, and you will be able to stand where Viking settlers stood for centuries ruling the law of the land. Enjoy visiting all of these sights from the comfort of our vehicle, with a knowledgable guide and at your own pace with a private tour.
