Experience a thrilling Golden Circle Tour in a 4×4 Super Jeep and visit some of Iceland’s most spectacular natural features such as Gullfoss Waterfall, Þingvellir National Park, Langjökull glacier and more.
You will be picked up by your super jeep driver at your hotel/guesthouse/apartment and the first stop on the way is Þingvellir National Park where the Vikings had their general assembly or ALÞINGI (Althingi), one of the oldest extant parliamentary institutions of the world which dates back to 930 AD. The park has some very interesting geological features as it gives you the opportunity to see the continental drift “in action”.
After enjoying the beautiful scenery, you continue to the geothermal area of Haukadalur valley where you will discover the Great Geysir – the original “Geyser” hot spring, the one that gave a name to every other hot spring in the world. The old Geysir has been dormant for years now but its ever-reliable counterpart, Strokkur, erupts roughly every 8-10 minutes so you are guaranteed to witness this wonder of nature in action.
After exploring the geothermal area, we recommend that you have lunch at the Geysir Center where you will find two restaurants and a variety of gourmet food, made from fresh ingredients. You can also try hot spring baked rye bread if you are interested.
After lunch, the Golden Circle Super Jeep Tour continues with a short drive to the spectacular two-tiered Gullfoss waterfall. Gullfoss is on the Hvítá river which gets its name from the milky white color of the water that comes from Langjökull glacier which is indeed where you will be heading next on the super jeep. After exploring the scenery on the glacier you will head back to Reykjavík. If conditions are favorable, you might rinse the dust of the super jeep by crossing a nearby river for some serious super jeep action before your Golden Circle Super Jeep Tour is over.
