Tour description provided by Viator

See Iceland's natural wonders on this 10-hour tour from Reykjavík to the Golden Circle. Visit some of Iceland's most famous tourist spots, including Thingvellir National Park, the warm showers of Strokkur geysir, and the powerful Gulfoss waterfall, before embarking on a thrilling off-road buggy adventure.
Around 9am, dressed in warm clothing and sturdy footwear, get picked up near your centrally located Reykjavík hotel. Jump aboard the minibus and get ready for a 10-hour adventure into Icelandic nature. Bring a packed lunch with you or some money to purchase food along the way. Set out along the Golden Circle, Iceland's most popular tourist route. At Haukadalur geothermal area, get your camera ready for a shot of  Iceland's most active geyser Strokkur, which erupts every 5 to 10 minutes. Then, drive around 10 minutes to Gullfoss, a powerful waterfall plunging more than 105 feet (32 meters) into a canyon. Next, stop at Thingveller National Park, site of the Althing, the national parliament of Iceland, which was established here in 930 making it one of the world's oldest parliaments. Also at Thingvellir, experience the unique sight of two continents; it is the meeting point for the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates. After seeing some of Iceland's best sights, strap on your helmet, get into the provided waterproof gear, and get your adrenaline pumping as you jump aboard a 2-seater buggy for an off-road adventure, following your guide along the less-trodden dirt roads and tracks in the wild. After getting your heart racing, relax on the return journey to Reykjavík. Please note: A minimum age of six years applies for participants on the tour, and all adults require a driving license to drive the buggies.
