The tour starts at 8:30 am, as you are taken out of Reykjavik and head straight to warm up and soak in the natural hot springs of the Secret Lagoon, Iceland’s oldest natural swimming pool. You will be there early, before the crowds arrive, allowing you to truly relax and soak in the magic of this wonderful geothermal pool. The perfect way to start the day!
Afterwards, you’ll enjoy a unique lunch inside the tomato greenhouse farm Friðheimar where they produce over one tonne of tomatoes each day. Having lunch amongst all the tomato plants in the greenhouse is something we are sure you will never forget. You will be introduced to their famous tomato soup, ravioli pasta or grilled tortilla pizza, homemade bread, as well as hot beverages. Lunch is included in the price of this tour.
Next, you get to witness the force of mighty Gullfoss, one of Iceland’s most powerful waterfalls. On sunny days, rainbows appear in the mist of this golden hued waterfall. From there, it is only a short drive to see the wonders of the geothermal area of Geysir, the original exploding geyser, and its surrounding steam vents.
After all this we drive onto the famous Þingvellir National Park. This is a place of great historical and geological significance and Þingvellir is the site of the first known parliament in the world, where many of Iceland’s most important decisions were made. It is also a place of incredible beauty, sitting in the rift valley between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. From there, it’s a short drive back into town, reaching Reykjavik in time for dinner.
