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

This is amazing trip, and all credit goes to the driver guide. He introduced a lot along the way, selected the icelandic music carefully, and allocated good enough time for each activities. The bus is nice too with wifi signal strong.

The Small Group Golden Circle Tour was excellent. The guide was very knowledgeable and personable. He was able to gather us at the pier and we were on our way promptly. Each stop was well-timed and we were able to see everything that we wanted to. It really was an unforgettable experience, getting so close to the falls, seeing the plates and where Mother Nature showed us just how powerful she can be. and of course, ice cream (not on the farm, but good enough). The Geysir was probably my favorite stop, and of course, if we could have watched the water spraying out for several hours, I would have been very happy, unfortunately, lunch got in the way. All in all, a fantastic trip, I cannot recommend this tour enough with this tour company.

Lots of great stops in this mini-tour. Troll Expeditions was prompt and our guide, was both friendly (funny) and knowledgeable. We had plenty of time at each stop so we didn't feel rushed and got back to Reykjavik with plenty of time for a fun evening.

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!)
