Head to the geothermal area of Haukadalur to visit Geysir—the original geyser—or its ever-reliable counterpart, Strokkur, which erupts every few minutes. Here you can see bubbling mud pots, boiling pools and other geological phenomena before making the short drive to your next stop, the majestic Gullfoss (Golden Falls). Considered as one of Iceland’s main attractions, this mighty glacial cascade plunges into a 70-metre deep canyon, creating a beautiful cloud of mist and, of course, a spectacular spot for photos.
Today you also have the opportunity to go snowmobiling on Langjökull glacier (optional; not included). For a relaxing way to end the day, we recommend visiting the warm pools and sauna at the Fontana Baths by Laugarvatn.
