From Reykjavík, you will drive across the Mosfellsheidi Heath to beautiful Thingvellir National Park -- a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a primary site of Iceland's geological and historical heritage. Walk through a massive geological fault to the place where Europe's oldest national legislative assembly, the Icelandic Althing, was established in AD 930. Astonishingly, it convened here in grandiose surroundings every summer for nearly eight centuries.
Your tour continues over the Lyngdalsheidi Heath into the fertile farmlands of the south for a visit to Iceland's most beautiful waterfall -- Gullfoss.
Nearby, you'll also stop at the Geysir Geothermal Area, with many hot springs. The most active geyser spouts every few minutes and is quite awesome in the old-fashioned sense of the word.
A two-course lunch and coffee will be served at a restaurant nearby. Returning through the Grímsnes region, you will also pass Hveragerdi Village, where geothermal water has been used to build an extensive greenhouse industry.
Enjoy the panoramic drive back to Reykjavík via Hellisheidi Heath with a short stop at the Hellisheidi Power Plant .
