Description

Experience the best of Iceland's Golden Circle on this exciting super jeep tour, including a bonus Silfra snorkeling adventure. Thrill-seekers who want to check off three of the most popular natural attractions in the land of fire and ice should book a spot on this private tour today.

This eight-hour private excursion in the Golden Circle opens with a convenient pick-up from your hotel in Reykjavik. You'll meet your English-speaking tour guide here, who will enrich your day with trivia, stories, and other interesting information about Iceland.

Opting for a private tour grants you the flexibility to set your pace, explore at your leisure, and delve deeper into Iceland's natural wonders. You also don't have to wait for other tour joiners. Instead, the guide will immediately take you to your exciting destinations.

To spice things up, your tour is conducted on a super jeep, ensuring comfort and safety while navigating Iceland's diverse terrain. With room for up to six guests, you'll experience the thrill and versatility of this unique vehicle as you embark on a sightseeing trip.

First on your itinerary is the Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site renowned for its unique geological wonders. Here, you can walk through the spectacular Almannagja gorge, formed by the North American and Eurasian plates moving apart. It offers the unique experience of walking between two continents.

The park also hosts Thingvallavatn, the largest natural lake in Iceland, and the historical Althing, the world's oldest parliamentary institution.

One of the day's most thrilling highlights is a guided snorkeling tour in Thingvellir's Silfra fissure. This experience offers a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in one of the world's most breathtaking underwater environments. 

An otherworldly underwater landscape will surround you as you dive through the unbelievably pure water, equipped with drysuits and snorkeling gear. Colorful lava rocks, deep ravines, and exceptional visibility of up to 325 feet (100 meters) will welcome you below.

Continuing your Golden Circle tour, you'll journey to the mesmerizing Geysir geothermal area, a geologist's playground and a photographer's dream. While the Great Geysir is mostly dormant, the nearby Strokkur geyser is a reliable performer, erupting every five to 10 minutes to 66 feet (20 meters).

The last feature of the scenic route is the awe-inspiring Gullfoss waterfall. Gullfoss, also known as the "Golden Falls," is a breathtaking two-tiered waterfall on the Hvita river. As you approach this attraction, you'll witness its wide cascade before vanishing into a 105-foot (32-meter) deep canyon.

After a remarkable day exploring the Golden Circle, the guide will drive you back to your hotel in Reykjavik, marking the end of this eight-hour adventure.

See the Gullfoss waterfall, snorkel through the Silfra fissure, and ride a super jeep on this private tour in the Golden Circle. Check availability now by choosing a date.
