What Will You Do

Thingvellir National Park

Our very first stop: The National Park of Thingvellir

Thingvellir is a location that presents both a historical interest and a natural interest.

About History:

It is where the very first parliament of Europe was founded, in 930. This is where Icelandic laws were debated and voted, until the 18th century.

About Nature:

The tectonic fissure that runs through Iceland, and separates the North American plate from the Eurasian plate is visible in Thingvellir. This is the only place in the world where the North Atlantic ridge is visible above sea level.

On this tour, we will also walk to the waterfall of Öxarárfoss.

Efstidalur

Today, we will shake things up a bit and start with dessert.

We will visit the farm of Efstidalur. The business has been run by successive generations of the same family since 1750!

But it is only since 2013 that they are making their own dairy products, especially, what we consider to be the best ice cream in the whole country!

We will get a taste of it while observing the cows who did most of the hard work.

Geysir

On the site of Geysir, we can find two geysers:

The first one, called Geysir, is currently clogged and no longer erupts. It does not mean that it never will, but it is at the moment considered dormant.

This is the one after which all geysers in the world have been named. The word "geyser" comes straight from Iceland.

The other geyser is called Strokkur, and this one is not dormant at all!

You will see it erupting every 5-10 minutes, sometimes higher than others

Gullfoss

Gullfoss is an impressive waterfall, coming from a glacial river from the glacier of Langjökull.

The name Gullfoss translates to "Golden Waterfall", some say that it is because of the color that the waterfall takes when the sun is setting, some say that it is related to the story of a grumpy farmer who threw his gold in the waterfall. Ask your guide about the story and what he thinks!

Friðheimar: Tomato farm and Restaurant

One would think that the dark and cold months of winter do not make Iceland the ideal place to grow tomatoes. But we actually do!

In the most famous tomato farm in the country: Friðheimar, your guide will tell you how actually the incredible nature of Iceland (together with modern technology) is actually making it possible.

This farm also has a restaurant, where we will have lunch, all their main dishes are tomato-based, their delicious bread is homemade, and the bloody mary is bloody good.

Having lunch at the farm requires booking in advance, and is therefore limited to their availability.
