Hop aboard this full day minibus tour around the famous Golden Circle route and explore and discover Iceland's mesmerising natural landscapes for yourself. You'll not only travel this favourite trail, but you'll make a couple more exciting pit stops along your way back, to guarantee you have an unforgettable experience. 

Once you have been picked up from your preferred location in Reykjavík, you will make your way to the stunning Þingvellir National Park. This is where Iceland's first parliament was established and is today identified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

You will get the chance to explore the park at your own pace, learning more about the sites' cultural importance to Icelanders, and see firsthand Silfra fissure, the beautiful underwater canyon dividing the Eurasian and North American continental plates.

Soon after, you will be driven to Gullfoss, one of Iceland's most popular waterfall, situated on the rafting river Hvítá. Fed by Iceland's second largest glacier, Langjökull, the river Hvítá plunges down into an ancient canyon, creating the spectacular falls in the process.

From Gullfoss, you'll make a stop at Geysir, in Haukadalur Valley. Here, the geyser Strokkur erupts every few minutes, reaching heights between 15-20 metres. Giving you plenty of chances to get a great photo. 

You will make a stop at a farm in Efstidalur valley. The place is commonly known as the "Ice Cream Farm" as they produce great tasting ice cream from the milk from their cows. There, you'll have a chance to sample this delicious frozen treat while watching the cows relax in the barn.

Before you return to Reykjavík, you will make a final stop at the crater lake Kerið.

Around 3,000 years ago a volcanic cone emptied in an eruption and collapsed into its own magma chamber, which later got filled with water, creating this stunning crater lake. You'll have the option of walking along the rim of the crater, seeing how the red walls of Kerið contrast the azure blue water.

In addition, this tour offers a more private and comfortable service. It is operated using a minibus with a maximum of 19 people. This provides more comfort and tranquillity when compared to a large coach. The minibus is also equipped with wi-fi and the tour guide will be playing Icelandic music along the way for your enjoyment.

If you're looking to explore Iceland's Golden Circle in comfort (with some added extras), look no further than this fantastic minibus tour. Come and experience nature in all its amazing glory! Check the booking availability by choosing a date

I absolutely loved this tour! It was great that they could pick me up right in front of my hostel and the bus was extremely comfortable. (I also really enjoyed the music). tour guide was very knowledgeable and extremely friendly. Driving was smooth and the sights were breathtaking! And the ice cream was a huge bonus. Seriously the best ice cream I've ever had. So glad I did this.

#teamtroll We booked the golden circle route through Troll Expeditions, which provided a relaxing and happy experience ending our last day’s trip in Iceland. As the distance to Geysir and Thingvellir National Park was quite near, the whole schedule was easy and relax, the driver as well as guide picked us up one by one at corresponding hotels, every time this young guy got off the bus and introduced himself to tourists politely which was quite impressive. Meanwhile, I was also impressed by the Icelandic music played by the cute guide during the journey, every song reminded you of goodness and happy moments, which all together strengthened your feeling to Iceland and the Iceland summer. The best moment among this trip: - free but super yummy ice cream (soooo nice! 120% recommend!) - close contact to animals! (Piggy, baby goats, horses and cows!) - Icelandic music on the way! - the cute and warm-hearted tour guide! (Thumbup!)

It was a fun tour with all the great attractions, creamy ice cream, and cute icelandic horses. The only suggestion I have is maybe a little bit more time allowed at each location so we wouldn’t feel too rush. Other than that, it was great!!

This was a wonderful tour. Our guide Robert was very knowledgeable about the terrain and all of our questions relative to Iceland. We saw all the best sights and had just the right amount of time at each. The bus was small and comfortable and made the tour very personal. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Iceland.

Golden Circle Tour was on point. The tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. He was gracious enough to add a special stop to show us a geothermal spot on the edge of lake where locals place bread dough in a container and buried in black sand for 24 hours. The 100c steam cooks the bread but unfortunately, there was non to sample. Great time, great guide, and I recommend it to all.

This tour was awesome! The guide was friendly and knowledgeable, the farm was an awesome experience and stop, and the horses were adorable (and so soft)! Pick up was prompt, and the guide was very good about keeping time even when some people returned late from the stops

We had a fantastic time on this full day trip. The places we visited are breathtaking even on a wet and windy spring day! The guide had loads of interesting stories and bits of information. He was great with my young son. The farm visit was fun for the family and nice to try some locally made ice Cream. Can not recommend this tour enough.

We loved this day trip! It was the highlight of our visit to Iceland. Our guide Vala was so awesome! She was energetic and friendly, timely and courteous, and full of interesting information about the sites, language, people, and customs of Iceland. The landscapes and stops were amazing -- beautiful waterfalls, erupting geysers, lava fields, and lots of lots of windy weather. We loved seeing the cows at the ice cream stop and loved having the chance to feed some Icelandic horses at another quick stop. Highly recommend this trip!

Hendrik was a great guide. He was knowledgeable about the sights and was an excellent driver in some very challenging road conditions.

Thorstenn was a fantastic guide and made the tour really fun. What a great personality. We went on April 1st and he even made a fake stop to play an little April Fools prank on us. We picked this tour because it packs the most into the day and I can't recommend it enough. Even with all these stops, it was so well-paced. We didn't feel rushed at all and Thorstenn made two extra stops for us - one at a scenic overlook and one at a little corral of Icelandic horses where we bought a little cup of horse candy for 200 kr to feed these beautiful animals. I like listening to the playlist he curated for us to mentally revisit the trip. We plan to return to Iceland for a summer trip and will do this tour again to see how much the landscape changes from snow to greenery.
