Final stop at the Bubble Hotel for the evening

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.


Our next stop on this Golden Circle Iceland tour 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.


Our next stop is Gullfoss waterfall, one of the most popular tourist attractions on this Golden Circle Iceland tour. 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.


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.

When done bathing, enjoy the beautiful landscape- see the natural geysirs heating the lagoon and the nearby greenhouse.


Our last visit will be at a bubble for a night stay. All the bubbles are transparent, so if the aurora is dancing you will have a private show.

We will have all 9x bubbles fully transparent and exactly same. No need to select because all guests will get same type of bubble.

All bubbles are located a short walking distance from our service house, which contains two toilets, two showers, and a self-service kitchen.
