Golden Circle Iceland
This best-selling The Golden Circle And Friðheimar Tour’s most famous landmarks include a visit to Friðheimar greenhouse. The classic Golden Circle with a sustainable twist!
The Golden Circle And Friðheimar Tour start with a visit to the Fridheimar greenhouse where we learn about the magical methods of managing pests by using biological controls. We also learn how to grow delicious tomatoes in an eco-friendly way with the aid of geothermal heat which Iceland has in abundance.
After Fridheimar, we stop at Geysir geothermal area. The Strokkur Geysir shoots a column of water up to 30 meters (98 ft.) into the air every 4-8 minutes in a thrilling display of nature’s forces.
The visit continues with the Gullfoss waterfall, created by the Hvítá river, which tumbles and plunges into a crevice some 32 m (105 ft.) deep.
Thingvellir National Park
We also visit the historical and geological wonder that is Thingvellir National Park. Here the American and Eurasian tectonic plates are pulling apart at a rate of a few centimeters per year. Thingvellir is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
