Make your way to Reykjavik Terminal/ Bus Hostel
Same as the starting point
Soak in the tranquil beauty of the Icelandic countryside from the back of an Icelandic horse, followed by a visit to the top natural attractions on the Golden Circle, a trio of unique attractions: Þingvellir National Park, Gullfoss Waterfall and Geysir Geothermal area - all awe-inspiring sites and top attractions of Iceland.
What's the plan:
Drive to the outskirts of the capital and mount a beautiful Icelandic horse. Horse riding takes place at Laxnes horsefarm (at Íshestar if Laxnes is fully booked), The Icelandic horse is a breed that has remained virtually unchanged since the Vikings brought it to the country in the 9th century.
After an exhilarating one-hour ride, take a lunch break (payable direct) before embarking on the Golden Circle portion of the tour.
Set off by bus for the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Þingvellir National Park. It was here that the country’s first parliament was founded in 930 AD, making it the oldest known Parliament in the world. Drive to the world-renowned geothermal area around Geysir hot spring, where a column of water thrusts upward to a height of 180 feet. Only a few feet away is the Stokkur Geyser, which hurls boiling water toward the sky every 5-10 minutes. Continue to Gullfoss waterfall, where the wide Hvita River plunges furiously over a natural staircase of stones.
On your way back to Reykjavik, pass by the village of Hveragerði, where geothermal energy has been harnessed to create unique greenhouse cultivation.
