Join this small-group minibus tour and discover the highlights of Iceland's famous Golden Circle sightseeing route. Travelers who want to see the Gullfoss waterfall, Geysir geothermal area, and Thingvellir National Park with an experienced local guide will love this full-day excursion from Reykjavik.

The adventure begins in the Icelandic capital, where your expert local guide will collect you from your accommodation or a nearby bus stop.

You'll board the minibus and meet the other guests joining you on the tour. This trip is a small-group experience, meaning you can enjoy more hands-on time with your guide.

The driver will take you out of the city to the day's first stop, Thingvellir National Park. The park is an important historical site. Iceland's first parliament, the Althingi, was formed here over 1,000 years ago.

Your guide will explain the area's geological and cultural significance, and you'll have time to explore the landscape inside the Mid-Atlantic Rift.

Next, your journey continues to the Bruarfoss waterfall. This beautiful, sapphire-blue cascade isn't usually part of Golden Circle tours, so you can enjoy this bonus stop on your route.

People often say that Bruarfoss waterfall is Iceland's bluest waterfall. It makes an excellent photo stop, so make sure your camera is fully charged.

From here, your group will continue to the Geysir geothermal area to see the mighty Strokkur geyser.

Strokkur erupts every five to 10 minutes, giving you plenty of opportunities to photograph the incredible natural display. Watch as hot water bursts into the air in a dramatic eruption.

The penultimate stop on your tour is the magnificent Gullfoss waterfall, which gives the Golden Circle route its name. "Gullfoss" translates to "golden falls."

This impressive two-tiered cascade is one of Iceland's most powerful waterfalls. On sunny days, a rainbow appears above the spray, creating a mesmerizing view for visitors.

Most Golden Circle tours end here, but your guide will also take your group to the Kerid volcanic crater. It's a fantastic place to learn more about the volcanic activity that shapes Iceland's diverse landscapes.

The Kerid crater has bright red walls and a serene blue lake. You can walk around the crater's rim to get a closer look at the unusual volcanic cone. Your expert guide will answer any questions about its formation and the reasons behind its bright colors.

After a memorable day, your guide will take the group back to Reykjavik on the comfortable minibus. You can use the onboard Wi-Fi to send photos to friends and family or make plans for the evening ahead.

Don't miss your chance to explore the highlights of the Golden Circle sightseeing route on this full-day small-group tour. Check availability now by choosing a date.
