“I just wanted to let you know how happy we were with the travel package you and co-workers put together. We had no problems at all with the accommodations, and everything went quite smoothly with the vouchers. The inns were comfortable, and the car arrangements also went well. The extra time near Lake Myvatn allowed me to have a wonderful horseback ride and practice the "tolt" at Hestasport. Thankfully the storms didn't interfere with travel too much.

It was a bit of a challenge communicating back and forth for the planning aspect, with the time and date differences, but we had a great trip and enjoyed Island a lot, amazing place! Thanks for your help.”

“We were completely delighted with our guide Torfi on the Golden Circle minibus tour. He was thoughtful, courteous, clearly communicating about each stop before so we would know what to expect. He was so knowledgeable about so many details of Iceland. From his personal experience being born and raised here to his complex detailed geologic knowledge made understandable, we were eager listeners. He patiently answered all our questions, time and again.

Our party of three would recommend him with the highest praise. We were comparing notes with friends on a different bus and by far we had the best experience.

And he was an excellent driver!

Thank you Torfi!”

Tour Highlights

  • Lake Þingvallavatn is the largest natural lake on the island. Þingvallavatn’s most fascinating feature are the fish that inhabit the lake, especially the Arctic char and the brown trout.
  • Almannagjá gorge is a one of the most breath-taking sights in the park and an important geological point. The dramatic gorge represents the eastern edge of the North American Plate.
  • Silfra is the name of the volcanic fissure that occupies the space between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. Due to its unique geographic positioning, it has become one of the most attractive snorkeling sites in the world.
  • Öxarárfoss is a majestic waterfall formed by the River Öxará. This lush fall cascades over two platforms before creating a dramatic 13-meter drop.

Travel Tips

  • There are no proper lodgings found in the Thingvellir National Park; however, you have the option to stay two designated camping sites, one in Leirar and one in in Vatnskot by Lake Þingvallavatn. Permits for camping and fishing can be acquired at the Information Center upon your arrival. If you visit Iceland during the summer months, then take advantage of a fantastic phenomenon called 'midnight sun' where the sun doesn't disappear until late hours of midnight to explore more areas of the National Park. 
  • Thingvellir National Park is located about 40 kilometers north-east from Reykjavik. During the summer season (from June to September), daily tour buses operate from the BSI Bus Terminal in Reykjavik to the park.
  • Game of Thrones fans will be delighted to hear that several spots in the park, including Almannagjá gorge and Lake Þingvallavatn, served as filming locations for the show.
