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?
