Blue Lagoon Transfer & Golden Circle Express | Day Tour to the Famous Sites

Based on 21 traveller reviews

This best value combination tour not only saves you money, but time too, so you explore the most of Iceland during your stay.

You'll start the trip with a visit to the mineral-rich Blue Lagoon geothermal spa, where you can soak in warm blue waters in the middle of a black lava field. Afterwards you'll head back to Reykjavik towards the Golden Circle tour.

The first stop on the Golden Circle is Thingvellir National Park. Thingvellir is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, situated on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. There you will walk between the two continents of America and Europe.

Next stop is the majestic Gullfoss waterfall in the popular rafting river Hvita. It falls down 32 meters into the river gorge and you can go close enough to feel the water spray on your face. This is Iceland's most famous waterfall and definitely one of its most beautiful also.

The last stop on the circle is Geysir geothermal area, with its hot pools and the hot springs Geysir and Strokkur. The former no longer erupts but the latter is a mighty one and a sight to behold, erupting every 4-8 minutes and reaching an average height of 15-20 meters, sometimes even as high as 40 meters.

Súper lindo todo lo del tour! El tiempo en el blue lagoon perfecto para tomarse una bebida y disfrutar del agua y alistarse para el resto de las cosas!

I liked this tour a lot. It was a standard tour of the golden circle that allowed me to see all the major sites. The tour guide gave a plentiful amount of information which was nice, and even told us information that was beyond the golden circle. The time at each stop was enough, especially since it was cold outside. Geyser was beautiful, as well as the waterfall. ALSO, the amount of time spent at the blue lagoon was absolutely perfect. I was able have enough time to get ready, relax, and pack my things before leaving. I loved this tour and would recommend this to anyone who wishes to visit the golden circle.

Fantastic. Everything I was hoping for and MORE! As educational as it was beautiful. Our tour guide Darren and his driver, Khali were great. Everything was extremely punctual and I would highly recommend booking this trip.

Great trip from 6 until midnights. What a magical country

Everything went smoothly. We took the Express Tour. We started our day at 6:30 AM and we're back in downtown Rejkavik at 7:30 PM. The tour is worthwhile and was sold out, so make sure and book ahead. Everything runs like clockwork. I had enough time at each stop except Blue Lagoon. I felt extremely rushed at the Lagoon and with a 4 hour stop, only had time for 2.5 hours in the lagoon waters. Darren is a very informative and interesting speaker and the highlight for my husband was driving past Game of Thrones filming site, even though it was not part of tour, you will see it out bus window. If you are able to book Blue Lagoon separately on your way to or from airport, I recommend that instead, but for us that was not possible due to our flight times. Book Blue Lagoon tickets early as they are not inluded in this tour and all slots will sell out.

Overall, I really enjoyed everything about this tour. You have to purchase your entrance to the Blue Lagoon separately and I would suggest the earliest slot in the day since it gets quite busy later on.

Book the trip but forgot to book the blue lagoon ticket in advance. When we arrived blue lagoon just find out its too late to book online for the ticket. So we can only book the blue lagoon ticket next day and the bus ticket again. Afternoon golden circle trip is nice. A lot of nice pics were taken there.

We did not realize that this price did not include entrance to the lagoon. We drove all the way out there not knowing if we would be allowed in. Fortunately we got in but it was a worry the whole ride. Other than that, excellent bus, good trip, would recommend.

This was an excellent day tour. The Blue Lagoon was a wonderful experience. The Golden Circle was full of visual pleasures of the landscape. Our tour guide was very helpful and knowledgeable of the history of Iceland. We only wish we could have had more time at each stop, but that is to be expected at a day tour.

If you are going to Reykjavik for the first time, I think the golden circle tour plus blue lagoon is a good choice. You are able to experience the essence of the beautiful nature of Iceland without spending too much time on transportation. The guide will introduce the history and fun facts about Iceland when we are on the bus which helps us to better appreciate the landscape. The tour is suitable for children and elder people in the family as it is not physically demanding. Last but not least, the price is reasonable.

The golden circle has so many beautiful attractions it is hard to describe it here. I want to go on this tour again. The relaxation time at the Blue lagoon really made this trip worth every minute and penny. If you can do one tour in Iceland you should combine these two trips in one with this tour. I hope you have a great time like i did!
