Discover the natural wonders of Iceland's Golden Circle on this awe-inspiring day tour from Reykjavik. This eight-hour guided itinerary takes you to some of Iceland's most iconic landmarks along the popular sightseeing route, including the Thingvellir National Park, the Geysir geothermal area, and the Gullfoss waterfall. 

Your adventure begins with a convenient pick-up from your accommodation in Reykjavik or the nearest tour bus stop. From there, you'll board a comfortable coach designed to ensure a pleasant journey as you explore the Golden Circle.

The coach offers spacious seats and free Wi-Fi onboard, allowing you to relax and stay connected. As you travel through the stunning Icelandic countryside, you'll enjoy views from the large windows, making every moment of the journey enjoyable.

A knowledgeable English-speaking guide will lead your tour. With their local expertise, you'll gain deeper insights into each destination, learn fascinating facts, and hear interesting stories about the sites you visit.

The tour's first stop is the Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This historic park was the founding site of the Althing, the oldest parliament in the world, established in 930 AD.

Thingvellir is also unique for its geological significance, as it lies between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. Walking through the Almannagja gorge, you'll witness the dramatic rift valley formed by these shifting plates and enjoy magnificent views of Thingvallavatn lake, one of Iceland's largest natural lakes.

Next, you'll visit the Geysir geothermal area, known for its hot springs and geysers. The star attraction here is Strokkur, a geyser that erupts every 5 to 10 minutes, sending boiling water high into the air.

As you explore the area, you'll also see bubbling mud pots and steaming vents, creating an otherworldly landscape.

The last attraction you'll visit is Gullfoss, one of Iceland's most famous waterfalls. Gullfoss, which translates to the "Golden Falls," features a two-tiered cascade measuring 105 feet (32 meters).

As you approach the falls, you'll hear the thunderous water and feel the refreshing mist on your face. You'll have ample time to take in the beauty of the falls from different angles and learn about its history and significance from your guide.

After you have explored the Golden Circle, the guide will drop you off in Reykjavik, marking the end of this experience.
