Gulfoss Waterfall Iceland

The second tour that Special K and I took in Iceland was the Iceland Circle Tour. It covers approximately 300 kilometers looping from Reykjavik into central Iceland and back. The tour started in Reykjavik where we travelled to the Thingvellir National Park, home of the Iceland’s ancient Viking Parliament. We walk across the fault line that separates the North American plate from the Euro Asian Plate. The tour continues up to the magnificent Gullfoss waterfall cascading down over lava rock. We then head to the great Geyser and the Strokkur geyser that erupts in 3 to 7 minute intervals spouting boiling water to a height of 30 meters.
