Travelers eager to explore Iceland's most famous natural wonders and relax in natural geothermal pools with stunning views should book this tour now.

This full-day tour begins with a pick-up from your Reykjavik accommodation or the nearest bus stop between 8:30 and 9 a.m. You'll greet your friendly guide and travel in a comfortable minibus with free Wi-Fi and USB chargers next to every seat.

With a maximum of 19 guests, this tour offers a small-group experience, allowing plenty of interaction with your guide. When everyone is on board, you'll head to your first destination.

Your first stop is the striking Kerid volcanic crater. This natural marvel, known for its vividly colored landscape, boasts a width of 885 feet (270 meters) and a depth exceeding 180 feet (55 meters). At its heart lies a tranquil lake, its deep blue waters contrasting starkly against the crater's fiery red hues, creating a picturesque scene straight out of a storybook.

Next, you'll discover the awe-inspiring beauty of Gullfoss, one of Iceland's most iconic waterfalls. Here, witness the power of nature as the waterfall dramatically cascades down 98 feet (30 meters) in two stages, creating a mist that dances with rainbows under the sunlight.

Your adventure continues to the Haukadalur valley, a geothermal wonderland home to the famous Strokkur geyser. Watch in amazement as Strokkur erupts, sending a spectacular column of boiling water up to 98 feet (30 meters) into the air every few minutes, showcasing the earth's raw power.

After marveling at the geysers, enjoy lunch at a local cafe or restaurant. This meal is an excellent opportunity to taste Icelandic cuisine (at your own expense), with the time and location of the stop adjusted based on the day's conditions.

The tour's next stop is Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site with immense historical and geological significance. Here, you can walk between the American and Eurasian tectonic plates, a testament to the ongoing geological forces shaping the land of fire and ice.

As the day winds down, the tour takes a scenic route to Hvalfjordur fjord, leading you to the Hvammsvik Hot Springs. Arriving just late in the afternoon, you'll immerse yourself in the rejuvenating waters of eight geothermal pools, complemented by a steam room. Your tour includes premium admission with a towel and welcome drink, perfect for unwinding after a day of exploration.

Departing from the spa early evening, you'll reflect on the day's adventures as you journey back to your accommodation in Reykjavik.

Don't miss the chance to experience an exquisite blend of Iceland's natural splendor and relaxation on this 11-hour small-group tour, visiting the Golden Circle attractions, Kerid crater, and the Hvammsvik hot springs. Check availability now by choosing a date.
