Geysir hot spring
Thingvellir national park
Iceland´s most popular travelling route is the Golden Circle and by no surprise. Breathtaking scenery the whole time which consists of the three iconic sights: Thingvellir national park, Gullfoss waterfall and the geyser which bares the name Geysir.
The tour starts at 09:00 am which is the perfect time to leave Reykjavik. At Thingvellir, which was Iceland´s parliaments site from 930 A.D. one can marvel at the gap between continents, view the ever impressing lava fields stretching endlessly as it seems and take in the culture and history of Iceland. The waterfall Oxararfoss is nearby and EastWest never skips that sight.
Geysir the geyser is a massive experience. To witness the power of boiling hot water rush out of the ground to erupt up to 6 meters every 5 minutes or so is something that should be on everyone´s bucket list.
Gullfoss waterfall has both very historical significance as well as being significant by itself. The mass of water running is very impressive and one can loose track of time staring into the waterfall. On our way we stop to photograph Faxi Waterfall as well, a very beautiful spot.
In our minibuses we offer free wifi, the usage of our All Icelandic wool blankets (as Iceland tends to get cold) and some light refreshments. Our guides are all local and enthusiastic about educating and entertaining our customers.
