Description

Experience the most iconic attractions in Iceland, meet the beloved Icelandic horse, and soak in a geothermal spa when you choose this Golden Circle bus tour. Travelers looking for the convenience of a bus tour and the chance to see some of the most impressive sights in Iceland should book this tour today.

Your exciting day starts with convenient complimentary pick-up from one of many locations around the Reykjavik area. The pick-up service is efficient, allowing the tour to get on the road towards your first attraction quickly.

Enjoy the ride in the comfortable mini-bus with air conditioning and Wi-Fi as you make your way to your first stop, the Kerid volcanic crater. This caldera is 557 feet (170 meters) in diameter and features a vivid blue lake at the bottom. 

The next stop on this tour is a delightful addition to the typical Golden Circle tour. You will visit Fridheimar Farm, where you have the exciting opportunity to learn about two things of great importance to Iceland: the Icelandic horse and geothermal-aided horticulture. 

Watch the beautiful Icelandic horses in action as the unique gaits are demonstrated, including the 'tolt' for which the breed is known. Meeting the horses up close is an absolute pleasure, as these small-statured horses have gentle and friendly personalities.

After meeting the horses, you will go to the greenhouse to learn how Icelanders harness green geothermal energy to aid food production. Enjoy a sample of some of the fresh-grown produce before lunch at the on-site restaurant. 

Once you have finished your lunch, it’s time for the magnificent Gullfoss waterfall. One of the most famous waterfalls in the country, Gullfoss is incredibly powerful, and seeing this wonder of nature from one of several viewing platforms is a real treat. 

Next, you will visit the Geysir geothermal area. You’ll be amazed by the bubbling mud pools and steaming fumaroles, but the show's real star is the Strokkur geyser. Every five to ten minutes, this impressive geyser shoots up to 130 feet (40 meters) into the sky, a true sight to behold.

After Geysir is the last attraction on the Golden Circle, Thingvellir National Park. This UNESCO World Heritage site is the only place you can walk between the North American and Eurasian plates. A stroll here is an experience you’ll never forget. 

After a day of exploring some of Iceland’s most beautiful natural attractions, there is nothing more inviting than a soak in a geothermal spa. The Sky Lagoon geothermal spa boasts a tranquil coastal setting, perfect for relaxation and rejuvenation.

This modern facility has an infinity pool looking over the ocean and a sauna with similarly amazing sea views. 

This full-day bus tour is ideal for travelers who wish to see all the top sights on Iceland’s famous Golden Circle route and finish their day relaxing at the luxurious Sky Lagoon geothermal spa. Check availability now by choosing a date.
