Pick up will start at 9:00 from your Reykjavik pick up point. Please note that the pick up can take up to 30 min.
We will then head off to Silfra where we leisurely float in the glacier melt water that has been filtered through lava for about 50 years before reaching the fissure. The crystal clear water has roughly the same temperature all year around so you can enjoy this great tour in all seasons. The low temperature and the remarkably clear water provide a visibility that is hard to find anywhere else in the world. The snorkeling tour takes your through the four main sections of Silfra; Silfra Deep Crack, Silfra Hall, Silfra Cathedral and Silfra Lagoon and all the way countless shades of blue and green are sure to take your breath away.
After the snorkeling adventure, we start the Golden Circle part of the day right where we are - at Þingvellir National Park. Þingvellir, wich literally means “fields of assembly” is where one of the first democratic parliament was founded in 974 AD, holds a special place in every Icelander’s heart because of its historical significance. In addition to that, Þingvillis is on UNESCO’S world heritage list for its unique geological features, but the national park is located right in the rift valley of the Eurasian and North-American tectonic plates.
Our next stop is by Strokkur, the famous spouting hot spring that sends hot water high up in the air every 8-10 minutes. Strokkur is located at the Geysir geothermal area, where the famous Great Geysir has its home. Although Geysir has stopped erupting the area is still very much active with numerous smaller hot springs for visitors to enjoy. The last stop of the day is by Gullfoss waterfall. The magnificent double cascade is truly a mesmerizing site. The water flows all the way from Langjökull glacier and gushes 32 meters down to the Gullfoss canyon exhibiting breathtaking power and grandeur.
