Discover some of the most spectacular natural wonders southern Iceland has on offer with a fully guided tour that packs in whitewater rafting, magnificent Gullfoss waterfall and geothermal spectacles in the volcanic Golden Circle region. Gear up with a wet suit, helmet and life vest then join experienced guides on a thrilling rafting adventure across Hvita river rapids through narrow Bruarhlod gorge and past towering rock pillars — you can even jump from a canyon cliff into cool river waters. Back at base camp, unwind with a hearty lunch and warm up in the sauna or hot tub. Then behold the power of thundering Gullfoss: Iceland’s most famous waterfall, gushing glacial waters some 104 feet into the Hvitargljufur gorge, is nothing short of breathtaking. Travel along the Golden Circle route to see the geothermal hot springs and geysers of the Haukadalur valley before entering Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO-listed rift valley located between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates.
