We start the tour with the ever so popular Golden Circle which is Iceland’s most popular day tour route. We visit the great waterfall Gullfoss
which falls in two steps down a crevice. We stop by the Geysir geopark
where the geyser Strokkur
erupts every few minutes gushing a 15m column of water into the air. We also visit Thingvellir national park
where you can see the mid-Atlantic rift rising above the ground. This is where two tectonic plates meet and also the historic meeting site for the ancient parliament Althing founded in the year 930.
We drive north through the mountain passs Kjalvegur. The road is only accessible to jeeps making the region remote and ill accessible.
We stop in Kerlingafjöll mountains are a part of a 100km long volcano system.There you will be able to see a number of hot springs and rivulets. The area is a popular hiking route both amongst locals and tourists.
We will be hiking in this region for most part of the day enjoying the fantastic sceneries of the highlands.
We overnight in Kerlingafjöll
