Itinerary

FlyOver Iceland

After experiencing a wonderful day out in the beautiful Icelandic nature of the Golden Circle, you will return to Reykjavik and be dropped off at FlyOver Iceland which has a central location in the city. You will experience what it is like to virtually fly over Iceland through state-of-the-art technology which simulates the in-flight experience.

The ride will sweep you across the marvellous Iceland landscape, soaring across glaciers, waterfalls, mountains and volcanos. You will hang suspended, feet dangling, before a 20-metre spherical screen whilst the film whisks you away on an breathtaking journey across Iceland. The most popular wonders of Iceland feature in this experience, but also expect to see some little known gems and hidden secrets. This journey will leave you inspired by the adventure and wanting to physically explore more of Iceland.

Þingvellir National Park

Our first stop is the geological wonder and UNESCO World Heritage Site, Þingvellir National Park. Þingvellir sits on the intersection of two tectonic plates that slowly drift apart from one another, creating a dramatic and rugged Rift Valley with many impressive open cracks and fissures. This is one of the few places in the world where it is possible to observe a Rift Valley on dry land.

Þingvellir is also charged with history and tells stories of political struggles, compromises and ongoing evolution. Icelands first parliament, Althing, was established here in 930. It was an open air assembly until the end of the 17th century and a big point of gathering where people from all around the island united once a year to make and amend law, settle disputes and form alliances. As you walk down the big fault of Almannagjá towards the Rift Valley you drop into the scenery and atmosphere of the Viking era and truly walk in the footsteps of the Vikings coming for their annual meeting point.

Geysir Geothermal Area

Next stop is Geysir Geothermal area where you get the chance to observe the erupting hot spring Strokkur spout steaming water up to 20 meters into the air every 5 to 10 minuets. The whole area is transformed by geothermal heat and puts on display magnificent geothermal features such as bubbling pots, steam vents, spouting geyser, colourful ponds and beautiful colours. The are offers big service facility optimal for various lunch options and souvenir shoppers.

Gullfoss Waterfall

Only 10 min drive from Geysir is the iconic waterfall of Gullfoss (The Golden Waterfall) and it's stunning canyon. Gullfoss is alimented by the glacial river Hvítá that streams down from Langjökull ice cap and throws itself into a 70 m deep canyon it has sculpted over the last 10.000 years. Langjökull is Iceland's second biggest ice caps and can be spotted from the upper level parking on a good day. The beauty and power of Gullfoss has inspired many people and is not to miss. Well maintained walking path take you to all the best spots.

Kerið Volcanic Crater

Kerið Volcanic Crater is a unique site with its collapsed magma chamber now filled with milky turquoise waters. Walk around the edge of the crater and embrace the Icelandic landscape or walk down to the lake's shore and admire the vivid colours of this natural beauty.
