    What to Expect
    After pickup from your hotel in the morning, you will start your tour by visiting Thingvellir, the beautiful national park that was accepted on the UNESCO World Heritage list in 2004. It was here that the Alþingi, the Icelandic Parliament, was was established in the 10th century.
    Enjoy the view of the countryside while your tour continues to the magnificent waterfall of Gullfoss. Witness the forces of untouched nature as the water falls down 32 meters in two stages into the craggy canyon. Gullfoss literally means Golden Waterfall, and is extremely beautiful.
    Next stop will be the Geysir area which includes several hot springs as well as Strokkur, the geyser which spouts large amounts of water into the air every 10-minues or so, often at heights of 10 to 20 meters above the ground.
    Then the tour continues to Skálholt, the old episcopal sea, where you can see among other things an old sarcophagus which dates back to the early 13th century and the beautiful modern day church Skálholtskirkja which is decorated by Icelandic artist.
    There will also be an extra stop at the Rauðhólar (Redhills) phenomenon which are remnants of a cluster of pseudo-craters. The only other places this phenomenon has been discovered are other places in Iceland and in the Athabasca Valles region of Mars.
    Be transported back to you accommodation at the end of the tour.
