See the famed sites of the Golden Circle, and some extra hidden gems, on this private day tour from Reykjavík. To top it off, you will also have an opportunity to bathe in the geothermally heated waters of the Blue Lagoon.

The tour begins in Reykjavík, where your guide will pick up you and your group. Without having to stop for anyone else, you will embark on the Golden Circle route.

The first stop on this trail is Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that sits directly between the North American and Eurasian Continental Plate edges. The landscapes within, of lava fields, springs and ravines, are stunning, and the history is fascinating; Icelanders founded their parliament here in 930 AD.

Next up is the Geysir Geothermal Area. Located in Haukadalur Valley, this is the site where Iceland’s most famous geysers can be found. While the area’s namesake is inactive, its cousin Strokkur erupts to heights of over thirty metres. You’ll see it go off several times, as it blasts a column of water into the sky every five to ten minutes.

The final major site of the Golden Circle is the Golden Waterfall, Gullfoss. A two-tiered feature that plunges into an ancient valley, Gullfoss is a defining landmark in Iceland’s landscape and brings joy to any who look upon it.

Though most tours would return to Reykjavík here, you are only halfway done. You will get to see more lesser-known waterfalls in the area, as well as an ancient crater lake called Kerið, where azure waters contrast spectacularly with the surrounding crimson rocks.

You will then head to a local farm to taste the dairy products available, particularly the national yoghurt-like cheese Skyr, and arguably the best ice cream in the country.

Finally, you will head to the village of Fluðir, where the Secret Lagoon awaits. This is the oldest swimming pool in Iceland, heated by geothermal waters, and is the perfect place to unwind at the end of a long day of sightseeing. To add to the perfect scene even more, there is an adjacent hot spring area with a little active geyser you can walk around.

With a full day of adventure complete, you will return to Reykjavík.

Add some extra adventure and excitement to your Golden Circle tour. Check availability by choosing a date.
