First, we travel inland to the National Park and Rift Valley of Thingvellir where the edges of the Eurasian and the North American tectonic plates can be clearly seen and the first viking settlers established their parliament or High Council in 930 AD. We then go further inland to visit the Geysir Hot Spring Area, a large geothermal field featuring Strokkur which is Europe´s only erupting geyser. A short drive from there is the breath taking Gullfoss Waterfall, Iceland´s largest two-stepped waterfall situated in a glacial river, flowing from the massive glacier Langjökull. We then head to Hotel Selfoss which is actually built on the bank of the same river a bit further downstream not far from the southern coastline. The hotel is located in a great area for witnessing the Northern Lights given the right conditions and aurora activity level.
