See the best of Iceland with this private six-hour Golden Circle essentials sightseeing tour. If you are new to the country and want a half-day of easy sightseeing in Iceland with a professional guide, this tour is for you. 

This half-day Golden Circle tour starts when your tour guide picks you and your family or friends up from your hotel in Reykjavik at a pre-arranged time. 

You will spend the day with your expert guide and driver in a comfortable, air-conditioned car. As this is a private tour, you'll have plenty of opportunities to ask any questions you might have along the way.

As you leave Reykjavik, you'll notice the change of scenery. The Golden Circle is Iceland's most famous sightseeing route, full of stunning scenery.

During the trip, you'll stop at a UNESCO site, Thingvellir National Park. Here you can take an easy-level guided walk and explore the park's beautiful nature. 

The Mid-Atlantic Rift divides Iceland, and some parts lie on the North American tectonic plate while others are on the Eurasian plate. At Thingvellir, you can see the edges of both plates. 

Thingvellir is the most active stop on your journey, although you'll be able to get out and explore several other places. Once you've finished your hike and explored the national park, it's time to get back in the car and continue to your next destination. 

Continuing along the Golden Circle route, your guide will take you through the Geysir geothermal area of southern Iceland, complete with hot springs and geysers. You will have the opportunity to watch Strokkur, Iceland's most active geyser, erupt with a magnificent spray of water. 

The final stop on your trip is the Gullfoss waterfall. A stunning 105 feet (32 meters) tall, the waterfall is split into two stages and makes for a dramatic display. The first cascade is shorter at 36 feet (11 meters) tall, with the more significant drop being 69 feet (21 meters) high.

Once you've felt the waterfall's spray and taken in the majestic sight of it, it's time to head back to Reykjavik with memories that will last a lifetime. 

This private Golden Circle tour is customizable. You can personalize it by adding an activity such as snowmobiling or snorkeling or combining it with another tour. 

Don't miss the chance to see the essential sites of the Golden Circle sightseeing route in Iceland with this private six-hour tour. Check availability now by choosing a date.
