Discover the much-loved Golden Circle attractions in a single afternoon by booking this magical six-hour tour. Those eager to see Thingvellir National Park, Gulfoss Falls, and Geysir geothermal area should book this year-round trip today.

This six-hour Golden Circle tour immerses you in the beauty of Iceland. A minibus will take you on your adventures, stopping to let you capture the very best of Iceland. Think gorgeous geysers, breathtaking waterfalls, and an irresistible chance to step into history with Thingvellir National Park. 

This tour leaves Reykjavik, the capital city, at approximately noon. Your first destination is Thingvellir National Park, an area of stunning beauty, geological, and historical significance.

Dive into Iceland’s history at Thingvellir. Founding in 930, it’s the site of the longest surviving parliament. The valley boasts superb panoramic views and sits by the Oxara river. Thingvellir has several historical sights for you to capture on camera. 

Thingvellir National Park is also geologically unique. It’s the only place globally you can stand between two tectonic plates. The gap becomes a little more prominent each year as the Eurasian and American plates slowly move further apart.

The tour’s second stop is the Geysir geothermal area, which will surely be another highlight of your vacation. Geysir in Iceland means “Gusher.” While the Great Geysir, responsible for providing the English word “geyser,” is inactive today, nearby is Strokkur, another erupting hot spring. 

Strokkur erupts large quantities of superheated water every eight to 10 minutes, so you won’t need to wait long to see this fascinating phenomenon. The entire landscape around Geysir seems otherworldly, with boiling mud pits and steaming fumaroles. 

The Gullfoss waterfall is your final stop for this tour, a beautiful attraction you won’t want to miss. Also known as the “Golden Falls,” one theory says it received its name from the reflection of the sun glistening through the falls. 

Gullfoss is on a bend of the Hvita river, which stems from the second-largest glacier in Iceland, Langjokull. Its multi-step cascade and rugged natural surroundings are perfect for photo-taking opportunities.

After an incredible day up close to nature, your driver will take you back to Reykjavik. Here you can spend the evening as you wish. Grab a delicious meal at one of the top-rated restaurants, or check out the vibrant nightlife at the city’s clubs and bars.
