Embark on an exciting, personalized journey to see erupting geysers, epic waterfalls, and a rift that lets you walk between two continents at once. This private guided tour is the perfect one-day adventure for travelers eager to explore Iceland's Golden Circle.

Your tour will start at your designated pick-up point in Reykjavik, where you'll meet your professional guide. Then, you'll begin your journey riding in the comfort of your private transport as your guide takes you to the wonders ahead.

After taking a scenic drive across Iceland's south, you'll arrive at Thingvellir National Park, where the Eurasian and American tectonic plates are pulling apart. This movement forms the striking rift valley between the two continents.

Walking through the valley is an otherworldly experience as you can see the edges of the continents jut out in massive cliffs around the area. You will find beautiful forests, unusual lava fields, and sparkling springs between them.

This valley is also a historic site where the Vikings founded the world's longest-running ongoing parliament in 930 AD.

Along the Golden Circle is also the Geysir Geothermal Area, where you'll find the Great Geysir, the geyser that is the very namesake of all others worldwide. The feature lies dormant now and has been for decades, but there are other active ones in the area you can enjoy.

The most notable of these is the geyser Strokkur, which erupts every five to ten minutes, shooting boiling water up to almost 100 feet (30 meters) high. You'll be able to see it go off several times before you move on.

On this Golden Circle tour, you'll also stop at one of Iceland's most iconic and beloved sites, the magnificent Gullfoss waterfall. Also known as the Golden Falls, the powerful sprays form a mist around the falls that project a lovely display of rainbows on sunny days.

Another waterfall you'll see is named Faxi. While not as powerful as Gulfoss, Faxi is a very serene and relaxing sight. You can slow down and take in the beauty of the falls while reflecting on the trip so far.

Once you've seen all the majestic offerings of the Golden Circle, your private transport will take you back to your chosen drop-off location.

Don't miss out on the incredible sights and experiences of this epic private tour of Iceland's Golden Circle. Check availability now by choosing a date.
