Join this full-day minibus tour as part of a small group around Iceland’s famous Golden Circle route. Explore and discover Iceland's most mesmerising natural landscapes and attractions for yourself. You'll not only travel this popular trail, but you'll make a couple more exciting pit stops along your way back to capture some hidden gems, 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. It’s a wonderful site to explore including the history of the Alþingi, the view of the dramatic continental faultline rift, Þingvellir’s church and the stunning Öxarárfoss waterfall.
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. You’ll be able to stand in the middle of 2 continents between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates.
Soon after, you will be driven to Gullfoss, one of Iceland's most popular waterfalls, situated on the rafting river Hvítá. Translated to ‘Golden Waterfall’, the sheer size and power make Gullfoss an incredible spectacle to witness. Fed by Iceland's second-largest glacier, Langjökull, the river Hvítá plunges down into an ancient canyon, creating the awe-inspiring falls in the process.
From Gullfoss, you'll make a stop at Geysir, in Haukadalur Valley. Here, the geyser Strokkur erupts every 5-10 minutes, spouting to heights between 15-20 metres. Make sure you keep your finger hovering on your camera shutter to capture this amazing experience in a picture or video.
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. If you’re lucky you may be able to get a quick snap of some of the stunning Icelandic horses which are always curious about new visitors.
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 to give you a greater experience of Iceland’s culture. Be prepared to ask any questions about Iceland’s history, culture and nature as your guide will be excited to answer them.
