Tour description provided by Viator

Explore the unique volcanic and arctic nature of Iceland. This Golden Circle Afternoon tour is a shorter version of the Grand Golden Circle tour and a great way to get out of the city for an afternoon.
The Golden Circle Afternoon tour takes you to the most popular sights where you can experience the three highlights of the south west of Iceland. The Geysir geothermal area, the most active hot spring Strokkur is spouting steaming water up to 30 meters into the air every 8 minutes. Gullfoss, or the “Golden Falls“, is an iconic waterfall of Iceland, located in the glacial river Hvítá. The water plummets in two steps down into the 32 meters deep crevice. Þingvellir National Park is a historical and geological wonder, where the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates are pulling apart at a rate of a few centimeters per year. Þingvellir was accepted on the UNESCO World Heritage list for its cultural values in 2004.
