Join this small group Golden Circle tour to see some of the most popular tourist attractions in Iceland. Hop aboard a minibus and visit Þingvellir National Park, Geysir geothermal area, and Gullfoss waterfall. This tour is perfect for those who wish to see Iceland's most iconic attractions in comfort.

After being picked up in the morning, your first stop of the day will be Þingvellir National Park. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is important to Icelanders, not just historically and culturally but also geologically.

Þingvellir or “Parliament Plains” is where Alþingi, the national parliament, was established in 930, making it the oldest, on-going parliament in the world.

The geology of Þingvellir is unique because the area is not located on the Eurasian nor the North American tectonic plate, but in a rift valley between the two, and as the plates move apart, cracks and canyons are created in the region.

From there, you'll visit the famous Geysir geothermal area, where hot springs and geysers are abundant. There you can find the famous hot spring Geysir that the word 'geyser' is derived from, as well as the picturesque geyser Strokkur which erupts every 5-10 minutes, reaching a height of 15-20 metres.

Last, but not least, you will visit Gullfoss or the “Golden Waterfall”. This mighty cascade is located in the glacier river Hvítá witch originates in Langjökull glacier, Iceland’s second biggest glacier. You'll see as the water rushes down in two 'steps' into an ancient canyon.

The thundering noises from the waterfall will surely echo in your ear as you return to your minibus and head back to Reykjavík, filled with memories that will last you a lifetime.
