The other-worldly terrains of Iceland are one of the pinnacles of our Geo-Tourism Holidays. The entire island is volcanic in origin and the evidence of this fascinating creation can be found throughout the country. Visit the renowned Golden Circle and observe the rift between tectonic plates. This captivating phenomenon offers the incredible chance to experience the chasm between two of the planet's hidden foundations. The rift is found in the Þingvellir National Park and during your visit, you can explore the intriguing geological history of this magnificent location and discover how the iconic formations you witness today are the result of volcanic activity during the last ice-age! The Golden Circle is also home the Geysir Springs where geology enthusiasts can witness water spouting high into the air. Indeed, the highest jet recorded was an amazing 100m! And if you're looking for a water attraction of a different kind, don't miss the amazing Gullfoss Waterfall.

An exploration of Iceland and encounters with its myriad of geological features is both humbling and fascinating in equal measure as you delve into the history of the world’s activity, and discover its effects today. This experience is only enhanced by the chance of witnessing yet another iconic natural wonder; the Northern Lights.
