You will meet your guide and the rest of the group in Reykjavik, where you’ll go through the itinerary and, once you’re all set, begin driving along the famous Golden Circle. Stop by the national park Thingvellir and walk between the tectonic plates of the Mid-Atlantic rift and through time as you learn how the Vikings settled Iceland and formed the Althing, the world’s oldest parliament. Watch geysers erupt in the Geysir geothermal area and hike to Iceland’s bluest waterfall, Bruarfoss. In the evening, enjoy a relaxing bath in the geothermal pool. At the end of the day, head to your accommodation for the night, the Highland Base. This warm sanctuary will offer you a place to relax and recharge after dinner at the restaurant.
