Join this fantastic minibus tour exploring the famous Golden Circle sightseeing route, with stops at Þingvellir National Park, the Geysir geothermal area and Gullfoss waterfall, as well as a visit and soak at the luxurious Secret Lagoon. This is the perfect tour opportunity for visitors looking to balance brilliant sightseeing with some holiday relaxation!

You will begin the day's adventure by being picked up from your accommodation in Reykjavik before being driven approximately forty minutes to Þingvellir National Park, Iceland's only UNESCO World Heritage site. Here, you will the dramatic Almannagjá, the exposed North American tectonic plate, as well as read about the park's important place in Iceland's political history.

After Þingvellir National Park, you will head to the Haukadalur geothermal area, home to the popular hot springs, Geysir (now dormant) and Strokkur. Strokkur erupts once every 8-10 minutes to the height of 15-20 meters, causing a fantastic visual display and a worthy photograph. There are also a number of bubbling mud pools and steam vents to see at Haukadalur before moving on to your third stop on the Golden Circle.

The dramatic waterfall, Gullfoss ("Golden Falls"), is at the river Hvítá, which itself originates from the glacier lake at Lángjökull, about 40 km north. It's one of the most majestic tourist attractions in Iceland, a must-see for all those visiting the country; over two rocky crags, water cascades a staggering 32 metres into the gorge below.

At the end of the tour,  you will take a natural and unique bath at the Secret Lagoon, the cheaper and more intimate cousin of the world famous Blue Lagoon Spa. The pool’s beautiful surroundings, complemented by clouds of rising steam, give the pool a truly magical atmosphere.

The warm water stays at 38-40 Celsius all year and there are several geothermal spots in the area, as well as a little Geysir which erupts every 5 minutes. After your time at the Secret Lagoon is over, you will make the return journey to your accommodation in Reykjavik. 

So why the delay? Hurry now and join this fantastic tour combining the fantastic attractions of the Golden Circle sightseeing route with a stop at the relaxing spa, the Secret Lagoon. Check availability by choosing a date.

    It was an amazing trip with awesome bus driver and amazing and frendly guide :) they told us everything about iceland and even when they are not originaly from Iceland they live there long time. They told us funny stories about living in iceland, but they know a lot about history and culture too. Great is that its not a big bus, so i will go only with a few people and its much more frendly atmosphere. Big plus for me is that in bus is free wifi because if you want to post something on instagram you can do it directly on board :) Thanks to them i fall in love in Iceland and this is not my last trip with D-travel :)

    Puedo decir que mi experiencia con Dusan y Lucie en Islandia fue genial, son extremadamente amables y con gusto te llevan a diversos lugares, te explican todo. Los tours están perfectamente planeados, incluso se adapta la agenda de acuerdo al clima, para poder disfrutar aún más las maravillosas vistas en Islandia. I can say that in my experience with Dusan and Lucie on Iceland was great, they are extremely kind and they enjoy taking you everywhere, explaining everything. The tours are perfectly planned, even it's possible to adapt the agenda according to weather forecasts, so you manage to get the best possible experience the wonders from Iceland.

    If you are blessed to be on this breathtakingly beautiful island and looking for some reliable and friendly tour guide then look no further. With D-Travel you are in the right and safe hands. Driver Dusan is really cool and friendly. Lucia the tour guide is truly a professional and on top of that she has a lot of knowledge about the Iceland, its history, people, places and culture. But both of them share the same admirable passion for what they are doing. I have used their service once but definitely not the last time. I can only recommend them and let me assure you that you are not going to regret it if you decide for D-Travel.

    Dusan and Lucie are one of the best guides i have ever met :) I have visited Iceland during February, however there was not always sunny weather, i can 100% recommend it. On Golden Circle & geothermal area you can see beautiful waterfalls, geysirs (which erupts pretty often) and many others of the incredible nature of Iceland. I am planing to visit it again during summer :)

    My experience with Dusan and Lucie was a very positive one, as they showed their passion for Iceland, its culture, as well as its natural highlights. It was a great trip in great company and I learnt a lot on the way. I will definitely consider visiting Iceland again in their company, on one of my future trips.
