Join us for Iceland Adventure now to fall in love with an amazing country. Named the land of fire and ice, Iceland is considered part of the European islands. However, due to its distance from the continent and the distinctiveness of its environment, this statement is not unequivocal. Iceland is actually located at the junction of two continental plates: the European and the American. A trip to Iceland means waterfalls, volcanoes, glaciers, and geysers – sights for which you need to be prepared. The wild nature provides a sense of freedom and closeness to the natural world. Descriptions are unnecessary here – you must see and experience it in person.

The Golden Circle.

Today, we will explore the Golden Circle, including the plain near Thingvallavatn Lake.

The name ‘Golden Circle’ is best exemplified by Gullfoss, the Golden Waterfall, on the Ölfusá River. Today, the venerable Geysir ‘rests,’ erupting only a few times a year. However, right next to it is the youthful and lively Strokkur, erupting spectacularly every 7-10 minutes. For accommodation, we will head to Reykjavik.
