This tour offers you a great way to see the famous Golden Circle and a unique additional experience at the geothermal greenhouses. Join a small group and visit three of Iceland's most well-known sights; Geysir, Gullfoss and Þingvellir. The maximum group size is 19 people.  

You will head out of Reykjavík towards in the southwestern part of Iceland. You'll drive past areas where there are farms, green fields and summer houses as far as the eye can see. Your first destination is Friðheimar greenhouse and restaurant, a family run business where you'll learn about how they grow their delicious tomatoes in an eco-friendly way with the aid of geothermal heat, which Iceland has in abundance. 

Before heading off to see the Golden Circle, you'll have a chance to try the products you've just learned about at Friðheimar. Right there in the greenhouse you can eat some of their delicious tomato soup or indulge yourself with a Bloody Mary made with the juice from the tomatoes grown in the greenhouse.

With your head full of knowledge and your belly full of tomatoes you'll be driven to  Gullfoss waterfall. This waterfall is considered to be the queen of Icelandic waterfalls; it's filled with the meltwater from Iceland's second-largest glacier, Langjökull. Stopping at Gullfoss is a great photo opportunity and an opportunity to appreciate the power and beauty of nature.

A little further on is Geysir geothermal area, with spouting springs including the one the area is named for, but that one doesn't blow much these days. The main attraction is the hot spring Strokkur, which erupts every few minutes, much to the delight of visitors. 

The last but not least stop of the day is at Þingvellir National Park with its amazing geology and history. At Þingvellir you will also find the Eurasian and American tectonic plates that are pulling apart at a rate of a few centimetres per year.  

With this tour you'll get a bit of Icelandic history, a lot of beautiful nature and also some tomatoes, a great way to kick off your adventure in Iceland!!
