Premium Golden Circle Tour
In the morning after breakfast and check out, you meet your private driver-guide at the hotel lobby and start your trip to Selfoss with a Premium Golden Circle tour on the way. 

The first highlight of your trip is visiting the spectacular UNESCO World Heritage Site - Thingvellir National Park. The national pride of the country, the Thingvellir National Park has a very important historical significance - it is the place where the oldest existing parliament in the world (first assembled in 930 AD) is set. The “Althing” was held here for almost 9 centuries, until 1800. However, it is not the only history that attracts thousands of visitors to this unique land. Being part of a fissure zone running through Iceland, the Thingvellir area is a great lava arena in a rift valley formed between the Eurasian and the North American tectonic plates and serves as a visual representation of continental drift. The area also features the largest natural lake in Iceland - Thingvallavatn, surrounded by lava flows and lush vegetation. You then discover the Geysir area scattered with hot springs, mud pools and geysers, including the famous geyser Strokkur - the world´s most active. The next stop is the picturesque Gullfoss - one of the most beautiful and popular waterfalls in Iceland. Finally, you will see the Fridheimar Tomato farm.
