Take a spin around the most famous sites in Iceland on this afternoon Golden Circle! This tour is for anyone who loves the countryside, natural wonders and has only a short time to maximise in Iceland. The Golden Circle is absolutely a must-see in order to understand the history and culture of the nation.

You’ll be picked up at your designated pickup location and driven down the beautiful south coast to three vital sites: Þingvellir National Park, Gullfoss waterfall and Geysir geothermal area.

Þingvellir National Park is a gorgeous example of Iceland’s varied volcanic terrain, as well as a site that holds tremendous cultural meaning. It was here in this place that the world’s first parliament was founded more than 1000 years ago. You will also see how the valley is carved delicately between the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, edging gradually onto the shores of Þingvallavatn, the largest natural lake in Iceland. While here, you can walk between two tectonic plates. 

On your next stop, you’ll see Gullfoss waterfall, in which glacial runoff pours down the two-tiered fall into the canyon below. The speed and power of the river Hvitá makes it a favourite place for those who love river rafting.

Geysir geothermal area is home to the first geyser discovered in the West. All other geysers in the world are named after it. The Great Geysir, active for more than 10,000 years, is currently at rest, but nearby Strokkur explodes with activity every 10 minutes or so, blasting water into the air as high as 40 m (131 ft).

Seats fill quickly on this very popular tour in Iceland! Don’t miss your chance to experience the famous Golden Circle and you too can experience some of the best Iceland has to offer. Check the booking availability by choosing a date.
