The first of which is Þingvellir National Park, the site of the oldest living parliament in the world, as well as being of specific geological importance. Lunch will be in a very special greenhouse...

 

Geysir is next, in the Haukadalur geothermal region, where you will meet Strokkur, a very active geyser that erupts every 5-8 minutes. It is quite a sight (and quite a smell!).

The road takes you around the snowcapped volcano of Snæfellsjökull, visiting incredible locations such as Arnarstapi and the “Most photographed mountain in Iceland” – Kirkjufell.
