The Golden Circle and Hvítá River Jet Boat Tour

Capture the spirit of Iceland during this full day Golden Circle tour from Reykjavik. Step on board our all new bus fleet, equipped with WiFi connected computer tablets in each seat. In each seat you will also find a USB Charger.

On the tablets you can use our GPS Sensitive In Bus Audio Guide available in several languages so if you wish to know interesting facts about Iceland and the places you will visit on the tour while you travel, in a language you are comfortable with, that is very possible! Our onboard guide will also happily answer any questions you might have about our peculiar country.

On this tour you will explore Þingvellir National Park’s mossy expanses and deep fissures. The surrounding area is the birthplace of the world’s oldest existing parliament and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The next stop is at the world famous Geysir Hot Springs, home of the the on and only original geyser, Geysir, which both lends the English language its word for hot exploding springs  and is Iceland’s most iconic natural attraction. Here the ground trembles and steaming hot water spouts spectacularly skywards from the famous Strokkur geyser every few minutes.

Our third stop is the Gullfoss waterfall, the most impressive cascade in Iceland. Here a powerful glacial river cascades down 32 meters on two levels and into a narrow canyon with a thunderous roar, which makes for spectacular photos.

The last stop on this Golden Circle tour is at the river banks of the glacier river Hvítá. You'll get to enjoy the beautiful river from a completely different perspective. The 40 minute Jet Boat ride guarantees an adrenaline rush for all ages! Speed through a narrow basalt canyon and be exhilarated by 360 spins on the milky white river. The piercing colour of the water surrounded by the lava canyon is a breathtaking contrast of nature.

This is indeed the perfect end to an amazing day of sightseeing – an adrenaline rush set in a beautiful location!
