Tour 13 – The Golden Highlights of the South: 7 days of riding
This tour through varied landscapes takes us to the most popular attractions in the south of Iceland. We leave from Vellir and follow paths between lava and hills to the Valley of Horses. Through soft grass, we proceed to the beautiful and shimmering Lake Thingvallavatn. We visit the ancient site at the Thingvellir gorge, where Icelanders gathered from 930 to hold their parliament.
We ride across the heather and continue to the hot springs at Geysir. We proceed to the fierce, giant waterfall Gullfoss, with Langjökull glacier in the background. We cross lava fields to Thjórsá, Iceland's longest river, and visit the Waterfall of the Thieves. We ride through an Icelandic forest to the still active volcano Hekla, where we complete our tour riding alongside the volcano.
