By Reykjavik Excursions

  • Combine two bucket list activities into one fantastic, fun-filled day
  • Explore the Golden Circle route and its remarkable landmarks
  • Visit the idyllic Friðheimar greenhouse cultivation centre and learn how to grow delicious tomatoes in an eco-friendly way

Our fabulous combined tour is the classic Golden Circle route with a sustainable twist! Visit some of Iceland’s most stunning sights and the idyllic Friðheimar greenhouse cultivation centre all in one spectacular day!

What to expect?

The tour starts with a visit to the Fridheimar greenhouse, where we learn about the magical methods of managing pests by using biological controls. We also learn how to grow delicious tomatoes in an eco-friendly way with the aid of geothermal heat, which Iceland has in abundance. If you feel like it, as an optional extra, you can try their delicious tomato soup or Bloody Mary.

After Fridheimar, we stop at the Geysir geothermal area. The Stokkur geyser shoots a column of water up to 30 meters (98 ft.) into the air every 4-8 minutes in a thrilling display of nature’s forces.

The visit continues with Gullfoss waterfall, created by the Hvítá river, which tumbles and plunges into a crevice some 32 m (105 ft.) deep.

We also visit the historical and geological wonder that is Thingvellir National Park. Here the American and Eurasian tectonic plates are pulling apart at a rate of a few centimetres per year. Thingvellir is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
