On this 8-hour day tour we visit three of Iceland's most beautiful sights and Friðheimar greenhouse where we learn all about growing vegetables with geothermal water. We visit Geysir geothermal area, where you can see the geyser Strokkur shoot a column of water up to 30 metres (98 ft.) into the air every 4-8 minutes. Gullfoss waterfall is a step waterfall, created by the glacial river Hvítá, and tumbles and plunges into a crevice some 32 m (105 ft.) deep.The Golden Circle tour also includes the historical and geological wonder that is Þingvellir National Park, where the American and Eurasian tectonic plates are pulling apart at a rate of a few centimetres per year. Additionally, we visit the Friðheimar greenhouse cultivation center, where we learn about the magic behind growing delicious, pesticide-free tomatoes with the aid of geothermal heat which Iceland has in abundance.
