First of all you will visit Þingvellir national park where the two tectonic plates, the North American and the Eurasian plate, are moving away from each other. Few places in the world offer a better and clearer view of this massive geographic activity. The biggest natural lake in Iceland is also located at Thingvellir National Park and hosts a great variety of fish and bird life. Thingvellir is also an important place for Icelandic national history. At Thingvellir Icelanders founded their parliament in 930 a.d. where the chieftains had their annual meeting every summer. From Þingvellir you will drive for a short time to the next attraction which is Geysir geothermal area. There you can see Strokkur hot spring gushing out boiling water every 5 minutes or so.

On a sunny day, you can see the glacier Langjökull in the distance and enjoy a rainbow in the mist of the waterfall. If you wish to make this day even more adventurous then you have the option of adding a horseback riding tour at the time of booking.
