All our tours starts in the capital city which is the heart of Iceland´s cultural, economic and political activity. The first permanent settlements in Iceland is believed to have been established at Reykjavík around year 870. Steam from hot springs in the region inspired Reykjavík´s name, which you can translate to Smoky Bay.
Did you know that Reykjavík is the world´s northernmost capital of a sovereign state?
Þingvellir National Park is the place on the island that is stands closest to the heart of Icelanders. Our history was written there and the landscape is so unique. It is the place where you can see the American and Eurasioan tectonic plates pulling apart. You will get plenty of time to walk around the area, see waterfalls, rocks and we tell you all the stories.
Did you know that democracy was founded at Þingvellir?
Geysir in Haukadalur is the most famous hot spring in the world. The english word geyser derives from Geysir. This area is really nice and you can walk upon a hill to take pictures and see it blow from different angle. Our lunch break is at Geysir so we stop for extra long. Couple of restaurants at the area and a really nice gift shop.
Did you know that people sometimes ask us if they can put on their swimsuit and jump into the hot spring?
Gullfoss is the most impressive waterfall we have ever seen and there is a reason why it is one of the most popular attraction in the country. Standing so close to this masterpiece and feel the spray from the waterfall on your skin is hard to describe in words. You get plenty of time for all the selfies.
Did you know there was much speculation about using Gullfoss to generate electricity?
Here we tell you everything about our secret (Flatbread with smoked lamb) which is the reason why Icelanders are so strong, beautiful and intelligent (at least we believe so). We give you a little taste of this traditional Icelandic snack with a drink called Malt. You also get a time to take a look at this small beautiful waterfall.
Did you know that Faxi is sometimes called Gullfoss´s little brother?
Around 40 minutes out of Reykjavík we make a stop at this lovely small town which is built on a geothermal area. You can take a look at an earthquake exhibition and grab a coffee on this 15-20 minutes stop.
Did you know that it is popular to bake Hot Spring Bread (Hverabrauð) using only geothermal heating around here?
Have you ever walk behind a waterfall? You can do that at Seljalandsfoss which has a drop of 60 m (197 f) and is a part of the Seljalandriver which has it´s origin in the famous Volcano Eyjafjalla%#$%something.
Did you know that Seljalandsfoss was a waypoint during the first leg of Amazing Race 6?
One of the biggest waterfalls in the country with a width of 25m (82 f) and a drop of 60m (200f). Due to the amount of spray the waterfall consistently produces, a single or double rainbow which is normally visible on sunny days. You can walk up a path and see it from above.
Did you know that according to a legend one of the first viking buried a treasure in a cave behind the waterfall?close
Standing so close to Sólheimajökull is just like being in a Tolkien movie. You can feel the energy and the power from the glacier which is a part of the great Mýrdalsjökull, fourth largest glacier in Iceland.
Did you know that last 20 years Sólheimajökull has been shrinking around 50 meters every year?
The landscape at Reynisfjara is something you don´t see every day. The black sandbeach, rocks, cliffs, and the pure ocean is hard to describe in words. Our lunchbreak is over there and if we are lucky we might see puffins. Be careful the waves can be unpredictable and dangerous.
Did you know that two trolls tried to drag a ship to land but were tuned into stones when sun came up. That is Reynisdrangar stacks that you can see from the beach?
