Combine sightseeing with excitement on this Golden Circle tour that concludes with a riveting jet boat ride on the glacier river Hvítá. Afterwards, you can choose to relax in the Secret Lagoon at Flúðir, making this adventure the perfect combo for all travelling thrillseekers.

Your journey begins as you get picked up in Reykjavík City, and whisked away on a guided tour of the Golden Circle, where you will visit the most celebrated sights of Iceland. First up is Þingvellir National Park, a scenic and stunning valley sitting on the crest of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, where visible cracks and fissures showcase the very moving of the earth’s crust.

Then, it is off to the geothermal valley Haukadalur, where bubbling mud pools, mystic steam vents and spouting geysers dot a sulphurous landscape. Visit the legendary Geysir and watch as the geyser Strokkur spews boiling water high in the air every few minutes.

Afterwards, it is time to make your way to the most beloved attraction of the land, the mighty waterfall Gullfoss. See how it plunges down two tiers into a dramatic canyon below. This magnificent cascade is fed by the glacier river Hvítá, the venue of your next adventure.

After all this quintessential sightseeing of the land of ice and fire, it is time for you to stop looking and start participating in Iceland’s wild nature, as you jump aboard a zippy jet boat and hold on tight as you race down Hvítá’s rapids.

You will not only experience a surge in your adrenaline on your thrilling ride but have the chance of admiring the stunning scenery around you, seeing the canyon from below, rich with rock formations, vegetation and birdlife.

After this adventurous outdoor experience, you have the chance to opt for a reinvigorating soak in the Secret Lagoon in the nearby Flúðir Village. This naturally kept swimming pool is a local favourite, where the water is rich in minerals, and the surroundings include lava, steam vents and a miniature geyser.

Don’t hesitate in booking this fantastic tour to get your fix of sightseeing, excitement and relaxation, all in one adventure-packed day. Check availability by choosing a date.
