15 Oct 2019 :  Reykjavik - Golden Circle Excursion - Hella (2 Nights)

We visit the Golden Circle and Thingvellir National Park to trace the gigantic cracks in the earth's crust, formed over millennia as the tectonic plates of North America and Eurasia slowly drift apart. Iceland's natural wonders continue to astound as we watch the bubbling mud pits and Strokkur geyser erupt, spouting a spectacular column of boiling water and steam 30 metres into the air. Next up are the glistening frozen waves of majestic Gullfoss, the 'Golden Waterfall', before we journey to the Fridheimar Greenhouse for a fascinating introduction into Icelandic horticulture and a taste of the juicy tomatoes grown there. This evening, dine at your hotel and, if conditions permit, join your Travel Director for a walk in search of the dazzling heavenly display.
