The Golden Circle and Farm Visit | Eco-Friendly Day Tour

Tour the Golden Circle in an ecologically friendly way and visit a local farm as well. Get to know the greenhouses and taste some local product.

We'll start by quickly touring around Reykjavik city centre.

After a short drive the first stop is Thingvellir National park, a place of unparalleled natural beauty and the location of many of Iceland's most historical events. This is where the heart of the Icelandic nation beats. A nice walk in the park takes us to the most significant sites.

When travelling through the Icelandic countryside it is impossible not to take the time to visit one of the farms, speak to the locals, pet the animals and try some Icelandic delicacies. This is what we do next and this is also where we have lunch.***

Geysir hotspring area is close by with many interesting and colourful hot springs. The spouting Strokkur steals the attention roughly every 6 minutes. Strokkur's eruptions spout boiling water some impressive 30 meters into the air.

Gullfoss, "The Golden Waterfall", is next in line. This waterfall is by many Icelanders considered the most beautiful waterfall in the world. We at Go green believe that is the case :) Now you can see if you agree on that.

From Gullfoss we start heading back to Reykjavik. We might stop in a local greenhouse to buy some of their products. These can be all sorts of vegetables, strawberries, flowers or something else that is grown in these geothermally heated greenhouses. In addition to being naturally heated the artificial daylight used inside them during the long dark days of the Icelandic winter are powered by green energy from hydraulic or geothermal powerplants.

How green is that? :)
