Tour description

Embark on a 7- to 8-hour Golden Circle guided tour, departing from your Reykjavik hotel. Travel by comfortable minibus and experience one of Iceland's most popular day tours, which gets its name from the three places visited, some of Iceland's biggest attractions: Thingvellir National Park, Geysir geothermal area, and Gullfoss waterfall.

Starting at 8am get picked up from your Reykjavik hotel and get ready for a 7- to 8-hour guided tour of Iceland's Golden Circle. This route is the most popular for visitors to Iceland and it takes in three of the most spectacular natural sites in Icelandic nature.Accompanied by a local guide, travel by comfortable minibus and make the most of a 1-hour stop — and multiple photo opportunities — at each site along the Golden Circle. Marvel at the raw power of Gullfoss, one of the world's magnificent waterfalls. Get up close to an erupting hot spring at the Geysir geothermal area; a natural phenomenon where a spouting hot spring called Strokkur erupts every 5-10 minutes. See the meeting point of two continental plates and learn about the world's first parliament — the Althing, established in 930 —  at Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Food and beverages are available for purchase at two of the sites and you can relax in the knowledge that the minibus will drop you off where you began, at your own Reykjavik hotel, around six to seven hours later.
