The Golden Geology Circle offers you a busy agenda and an exciting day. We will visit our wonderful Thingvellir National Park with all its great history and charm. Thingvellir is off course listed on the UN World Heritage list. We will also see the amazing Gullfoss waterfall and the spouting hot spring Geysir. We will see some horses where it is allowed and if time allows we will add in some secret stops.

This is normally a tour for 4 people but we are flexible.
