History and Hot Water
Reykjavík – Nesjavellir – Thingvellir – Reykjavík
Guided tour of the Nesjavellir geothermal power plant, source of some of the geothermal energy used to heat Reykjavík and the surrounding area, followed by a drive around the shores of Thingvallavatn, Iceland's largest lake, to Thingvellir historic site of the Old Icelandic Parliament. Today a national park, this priceless natural treasure, with its canyons, chasms and river, is an adventure in itself. Further surprises await on the return trip to Reykjavík, including the massive explosion crater Kerið, the colourful birch woods at Thrastarlundur, and the garden village of Hveragerði, with its hot springs and greenhouses.
