The tour will start with nice bath at the Secret Lagoon, authentic lagoon just by Flúðir village http://secretlagoon.is/
The Secret Lagoon consists of natural hot springs which have been kept natural and unique so guests can get the true Icelandic feeling. The natural surroundings of the pool and the steam rising into the air gives the place a magical feeling. The warm water holds 38–40 degrees Celsius (100–104 Fahrenheit) all year. In the area there are several geothermal spots and a little geyser which erupts every five minutes, showing off for the guests relaxing in the hot spring.
Just remember to bring your bathing suits and towel
After a nice relax at the Lagoon it is time for Lunch you will have your lunch at Friðheimar http://fridheimar.is/en , Friðheimar will start with welcoming you with a small introduction of their work and little surprise that will lift your spirit. There you can gain some insight into the processes of greenhouse Horticulture, as it is quite remarkable that it is possible to grow vegetables in the cold climate, by creating warm Mediterranean conditions, all year round.
After lunch we will head for Gullfoss and Geysir, Gullfoss waterfall, which many consider to be the queen of Icelandic waterfalls as it is both high and mighty and stumbles dramatically in a deep gorge. After Gullfoss waterfall we will head for Geysir geothermal area in Haukadalur where you can see geysers, hot springs, steam vents and eerie blue algae. Strokkur is one of the largest and most powerful geysers and erupts almost every five minutes.
Your last stop will be at Þingvellir, Icaland National Park, where the Icelandic Parliament was founded over 1000 years ago. At Þingvellir you will see how the earth is ever so slowly pulling apart along the North-America and Eurasian tectonic plates and you will be able to stand where the Viking settlers stood centuries ago to edict national laws.
After Þingvellir you will be heading back to Reykjavik, and estimated arrival time is around 18:00
We hope you will enjoy the tour.
