Þingvellir National Park in South Iceland has stunning landscapes all around, including fields of lava and fissures of pure glacial water.

See the most celebrated sights of the country on this private day tour of the Golden Circle, with the added option of soaking in the mineral-rich waters of geothermal nature pool Secret Lagoon. This excursion is ideal for travel companions who want to not only sightsee, but experience the natural wonders of Iceland. 

Your journey begins as you get picked up in Reykjavík City, meet your local guide and board your transportation. The maximum amount of passengers is five for each trip, guaranteeing you a personal and intimate travel experience, amongst friends as opposed to strangers. If your group is larger, don’t worry, you can still update to a bigger private vehicle. 

Then, it’s time to begin traversing the incredible sites of the Golden Circle, the most popular sightseeing route in all Iceland. First up is Þingvellir National Park, a stunning valley located at the crest of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, where the continental plates are visibly pulling the Earth apart. 

From Þingvellir, you’ll make your way to the Geysir geothermal area in Haukadalur Valley, where hot springs, fumaroles, mud pools and spouting geysers come together in a first-hand display of the geothermal powers at work beneath our planet’s surface. Then, you’ll visit the king of all waterfalls in Iceland, Gullfoss, where it cascades down two tiers into a dramatic canyon below.

After all this incredible sightseeing, your driver will bring you to the horticultural paradise Flúðir Village, home of Iceland’s oldest swimming pool, the Secret Lagoon, geothermally heated and kept in its natural state. If you opted to during your booking process, you’ll gain entrance to the lagoon, where you’ll soak in mineral-rich waters amongst lava rocks and a small geyser. 

If you decide to skip the lagoon, you can still enjoy the magical surroundings, or enjoy refreshments at the restaurant. Afterwards, your guide will bring you back to Reykjavík City, but not before one last stop, the crater lake Kerið, a pool of turquoise water inside a red volcanic caldera. 

Don’t miss out on this perfect day tour in a private vehicle with a local guide, seeing the sights of the Golden Circle and visiting a natural, geothermal spa in South Iceland. Check availability by choosing a date.
