  • Day 2 : The Golden Circle

    Early morning departure from Reykjavík, pick up from your hotel where you will meet your guide and fellow travelers on tour. We head towards the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Þingvellir National Park. After a short hike there the road takes us to Geysir geothermal area before continuing to the Golden Waterfall, Gullfoss.

On the way to Krafla we will take an obligatory stop to take a look at the solfataras of Námaskarð. The Krafla area had nine different eruptions from 1975 to 1984 and the lava is still warm in places, emitting steam creating an otherworldly atmosphere.

At Herðubreiðarlindir an ingenious outlaw survived a hard winter by using his skills and the endless supply of clean water. Even though we might not be happy with his amenities today it is still a sight to see. In the afternoon we tie up our boots on and walk over the Dyngjufjöll mountains enjoying the strange feel of the otherworldly landscape. Once on the rim of the Askja caldera spectacular views are ours to enjoy and Askja´s a mystical aura won’t leave anyone untouched.

The mighty Vatnajökull glacier is our constant companion throughout the day and the extraordinary Urðarháls crater is a must visit.
