Stop 1: Thingvellir National Park
Our first stop is Thingvellir National Park. It is a UNESCO world heritage site and the most significant place regarding Icelandic history. The name Thingvellir in Icelandic means “Parliament Fields”.
The general assembly, the Althing was established here in 930 AD making it one of the oldest parliaments in the world. Thingvellir is also known for its geology and has been a protected area since 1928.
Thingvellir is amongst the very few places on Earth where you can observe a continental drift valley between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates.
Stop 2: Geyser Hot Spring
Our next stop is the famous Geysir hot spring area. It is located in the geothermally active valley Haukadalur. Today the most active is Strokkur, an energetic spouting hot spring, which goes up every 5 minutes or so.
The white column of boiling water forms a beautiful half bubble before it goes up as a super-heated steaming water. It can reach the height of 15-30 m (60-90 feet). Strokkur (the churn) was formed in an earthquake in the year of 1789.
Other interesting hot springs are Blesi and Fata, the former are two large basins separated by the ”blaze” but connected to it is Fata. We also have Konungshver named after King Christian IX king from Denmark.
Stop 3: Gullfoss waterfall
Our next stop is Gullfoss waterfall, one of the most popular tourist attractions in Iceland. It runs down the river Hvítá into beautiful curved three step “staircase”!
It is a very powerful experience to walk close to the waterfall on the west side as on average we have 140 cubic meters per second (80 in winter) falling down the staircases.
When you arrive at Gullfoss parking area, the edge can’t be seen, so it appears as the earth is simply absorbing the waterfall.
Stop 4: Floating in Secret Lagoon
Our next stop is in the Secret Lagoon at Fludir. It is a unique natural hot spring and the oldest swimming pool in Iceland (made in 1891). Its temperature is perfect and the water holds at 38-40 Celsius (100-104 Fahrenheit) all year around.
You will be provided with a unique floating kit (for head and legs) to enjoy floating in the Secret Lagoon. This is an optional activity and done in public opening hours, so sometimes it can be too crowded for the floating experience to be relaxing.
When done floating and enjoying the Secret Lagoon you will boil eggs in Vadmalshver – a natural hot spring – using fishing rods.
Stop 5: Sleeping in a bubble
Our last visit will be at a bubble for a night stay. All the bubbles have a transparent upper half or are fully transparent, so if the aurora is dancing you will have a private show.
We will have all 6x bubbles fully transparent and exactly same. No need to select because all guests will get same type of bubble.
Guided (english) Golden Circle tour on Suburban luxury jeep or similar. Max 6 person per tour. Entry ticket to Secret Lagoon. Floating cap and support for legs. Boiling your own egg in Vadmalshver hot spring, one night in a bubble (2 adults per bubble) and free pickup & drop off in Reykjavik. Breakfast and dinner not included in price.
Price is ISK 59.900 per person (around USD 555 / Euro 527 per person @currency rate 2. March 2017)
We have one secret bubble location at the moment. At the moment we are only selling tour based on availability of the bubbles in this forest. We will add more availability as soon as we have finish setting up more bubbles.
TYPE OF BUBBLE
Until 10. June we have 4x UFO bubbles available and 2x fully transparent bubbles but after 10. June we will have 6x fully transparent bubbles. All the same. Both types fit for 2 adults. The UFO bubbles have a round mattress with diameter of 2.4 m. The fully transparent bubbles have a double bed.
MIN NR OF PASSENGERS
We have a minimum number of 4 adults for the tour to go. You can book below for 2 adults but if the minimum number of 4 will not be reached one week before departure date, we will cancel the tour and refund the money 100% back to your credit card. Also we can not accept bookings from 1 or 3 travelers. We only accept bookings from 2, 4 or 6 passengers.
Availability of this tour is primarily based on the availability of the bubbles. They have been very popular and we only have 6x bubbles to use. This means you need often to book many months ahead as we often get fully booked very fast.
Be treated like a president
We just bought two new Suburbans for this tour only. Each has 6 seats so we can max have 12 passengers for 6 bubbles each day. These trucks are the same as US presidents have been using for decades minus we dont have the bullet proof version!
