- See the landscape and learn the history of Thingvellir National Park
- Visit the natural steam baths of Laugarvatn Fontana wellness centre
- See Gullfoss waterfall cascading into the Hvítá river canyon
- View the erupting hot springs at Geysir geothermal area
The tour begins with an exploration of Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site where the tectonic plates of North America and Eurasia split and drift apart, which literally enables you to be in two continents at once. You will see Iceland’s largest natural lake and learn the incredible story of how Iceland’s first parliament was formed.
Next, we move on to the amazing Gullfoss waterfall where you can take a short walk down a pathway and get close enough to feel the mist of glacial water on your skin. Gullfoss is a powerful waterfall with a powerful history, which you will get to learn more about from an expert guide.
Afterwards, we'll visit is Geysir geothermal area, home to the geyser that all other geysers are named after. Check out the Great Geysir, which is often called the "mother of all geysers". Next to it is Strokkur, which is the most active geyser and erupts every few minutes so you are guaranteed to see an eruption up close.
Finally, we move to Laugarvatn Fontana Geothermal Baths which is located in the center of the Golden Circle. These natural steam baths of Lake Laugarvatn have known to have healing powers and have been attracting visitors since 1929. Rejuvenate yourself in the steam room cabins, sauna, outdoor mineral baths (that have various depths, sizes and temperatures) or take a dip in the Lake itself for a relaxing end of an exciting day.

How many days are enough for Europe?
You can spend a couple of months exploring Europe and still feel like you have not seen everything. Generally speaking, a two-week Europe trip should be just enough if you are looking to cover its major highlights. However, if you want a comprehensive travel experience within this duration, it is better that you focus on a region or a few countries rather than traveling all over the continent.
Choose a single country or schedule your trip around a handful of cities in different countries. While larger European cities may require three to four days to explore, you can get around smaller destinations in a day or two. Planning your trip around a particular region will cut down your travel time and save your time in transit.
What is the best month to visit Iceland?
Given that summer temperatures do not rise much above 16°C, the best time to visit Iceland is between the months of May and September. Gullfoss Waterfall is also at its most impressive at this time of year, and the midnight sun is visible in the country’s north. Travel outside of the summer season and you may find the country’s museums and hiking routes, such as the Laugavegur Trail, closed. However, the period between November to February does have the bonus of being the season of the Northern Lights, and major attractions such as the Blue Lagoon remain open all year round. Find more information here.
How do I plan a 15-day trip to Europe?
If you are planning to visit multiple countries, you should prepare a tentative list of destinations you are interested in. If it is your first trip, stick to major cities and cultural centers for the sake of simplicity and convenience. Also, be flexible and optimize your travel time and budget. Be open to changing your itinerary depending on schedules and ticket prices.
Is Iceland expensive to visit? How does the credit card system work? Do I need to carry cash in hand?
Iceland is one of the most expensive countries in the world to visit, although there are ways to keep costs down, such as by renting a camper van. Overall, visitors should be looking at a daily per-person budget of between USD 100 and USD 200. Most hotels, restaurants, and shops accept credit cards from major providers, and there are no minimum purchase requirements. Since cards are the preferred method of payment, you should be okay even if you avoid carrying cash completely, although having some for emergencies is always a good idea.
Where to travel in Europe?
Europe has swathes of spectacular landscapes, a rich history, and vibrant cultures. Therefore, deciding on the best travel destinations on the continent can be difficult. However, you can narrow down on highlights by choosing one overarching theme for your trip.
If you are looking forward to immersing yourself in art and history, then Italy, Spain, and France should be on the top of your list. Head for Switzerland, Norway, or Croatia if nature is what you love the most. For beaches and water sports, you will be hard-pressed to find better destinations than Greece, Portugal, and Montenegro.
Having said that, you can also diversify your itinerary by mixing and matching different elements of the same country. Italy tops the charts not just for its medieval monuments and Renaissance art but also for coastal scenery and sun-soaked beaches. Similarly, Spain is a foodie paradise as much as it is an architectural hotspot.
