Tour description provided by Viator

This is an ideal tour for those who want to see the two most visited places in Iceland in one day.  The Golden circle named by the Golden waterfall or Gulfoss. On the same route we will visit Thingvellir national park which is located in the middle of the Euroasian and American tectonic plate. Enjoy a walk between both plates down to valley where the oldest democratic parliament is based.  We will stop at Geyser hot spring and enjoy one of Icelands most visited tourist attraction, geyser Strokkur which blows up every 6-8 minutes. Next stop will be place such as Kerið crater, Hveragerði town. From here we are heading to Reykjanes peninsula and finally catch the Blue lagoon (entrance fee not included). This tour is nearly always private. Even if we have two or more bookings for same day, tour still will be highly privately so customers have enough time to research wonder of Icelandic nature.
