Highlights- Seeing whales and dolphins in their natural habitat - Rich bird life of Faxaflói Bay - Nature and history of Þingvellir National Park - Standing next to the powerful Gullfoss Waterfall - Erupting hot spring at Geysir geothermal area Your trip starts with a whale watching tour from Reykjavik, where you’ll get a chance to see whales and dolphins in their natural environment on just out from Reykjavik on Faxaflói bay. The bird life of Faxaflói bay is rich and diverse all year round. Largest flocks are seen in late winter, when Capelin migrates to the area, drawing in thousands of birds and whales to gorge on this life-giving nourishment. After whale watching, you can visit the "Whales of Iceland Exhibition" which is the largest of its kind in Europe and features around twenty-five life-size specimen of whales that live in the waters around Iceland. Second leg of the tour is the Golden Circle trip. You can either walk the short distance from Reykjavik Old harbor to our Office in Reykjavik City Centre (5 to 10 min) where your bus is waiting to take to the Golden Circle trip, or opt for pickup at the harbor in the afternoon. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Þingvellir National Park, is one of most significant place in Iceland in terms of nature and history. It is the birthplace of the Icelandic Viking age Parliament Alþingi (930 AD), where laws were made and medieval justice carried out. Þingvellir is home to lake Þingvallavatn, Iceland's largest natural lake, and is the place where the tectonic plates of America and Eurasia meet and drift apart. Gullfoss waterfall is one of the most popular natural attractions of the Golden Circle trip. Standing next to the double cascade waterfall as it thunders down into the narrow Hvítárgljufur canyon is an unforgettable experience. At Geysir gothermal area, one of the highlights is the hot spring Strokkur as is erupts with scalding water every 5 minutes. Languages English Redeem informationVoucher type: PrintedPrinted Voucher.
