Get ready to experience the best of which Iceland has to offer on this opportune bus tour of the Golden Circle route, crowned with a visit to the wonderful Secret Lagoon. If you only have a limited time for prime sightseeing of the Island of ice and fire, this tour is for you.

After getting picked up from decided locations in Reykjavík City, you will board a bus and head for the one and only Secret Lagoon; a man-made hot spring of natural resources located in the archaic municipality Flúðir. The water stays at 38-40C all year-round.

As you soak in the warm mineral-rich waters and take in the magical scenery, you can reinvigorate yourself before a satisfying day of sightseeing.

The Golden Circle is celebrated for a reason, as you shall see upon visiting its three primary sites of Þingvellir, Gullfoss and Haukadalur.

Þingvellir National Park is a unique terrain of geological phenomena, being located on the very meeting point of the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates. This is a world in constant creation, as the continental drifting apart can be measured in several centimetres each year in the cracks of Almannagjá.

This vast and scenic area of lava rock fields, lakes, fissures and growth is furthermore the location of Iceland’s very first parliament, established on the site in 930 AD. After having learned about the ancient history of this official World Heritage Site, you will head east to the geothermal valley of Haukadalur.

There is where two famous fountain geysers Strokkur and Geysir call their home. Although Geysir is the very namesake of the phenomena, it is mostly dormant these days. Strokkur however, still erupts every 5-10 minutes, so be prepared to witness the earth spewing out boiling water about 20-40 metres into the air.

Next up is Gullfoss Waterfall, the most iconic site in the entire country. These falls are an incredible sight of unharnessed power as the wide glacial river Hvítá plunges down a two-tiered fall into a great canyon. Remember to bring your camera along for all the extraordinary photo opportunities on your journey.

Don’t hesitate in booking this model tour of Iceland’s primary sights and satisfactions. Check availability by choosing a date.

Absolutely love this trip! Secret lagoon definitely was our highlight. Really relaxing and not many people. The guide was so lovely and took us to visit his artist friend. Really personal, it's like having a friend in Iceland, taking us around. I would recommend this trip to any friends who wants to visit Iceland.

This tour was amazing! Most people I know that have visited Iceland drove this route themselves but to have such a knowledgeable and kindhearted tour guide (Simon) made all the difference! To hear the history and stories behind the landscape and culture only added to the experience and we would have missed out on all those details had we driven ourselves. I highly recommend taking this guided tour! Each stop was breathtaking and we completely lucked out on weather - the sun was shining with no clouds in sight! Simon was wonderful to listen to - he explained different geological structures we drove past and was always willing to answer questions (he even told me about some authors and books I should look into!). Thank you Simon for adding such wonderful insight to our Golden Circle Tour!

Was a great experience touring with them. Guide(palli) had good knowledge of the place and intimated well to keep the tourist attentive throughout. He was caring enough to restrict us and watch us in the danger zones

Very good! Very nice and knowledgable guide that took us round the golden circle and secret lagoon. Gulfoss waterfall and the secret lagoon were the best parts of the trip. Recommend to everyone.

This was a great tour we have ever had. Both trips were interesting and awesome. Both guides (matt and Hannes) are professional and joked a lot. The tours' routes were well thoughtful and organised. Have seen many unforgettable places of Icelandic nature. Got much pleasure. Thanks.

This was the highlight of our trip to Iceland! Watching the sun come up at the Kevid crater was pretty magical! What a wonderful way to see all the sites and fit in some time at the Secret Lagoon. Our tour guide Matt was amazing and we really appreciated how interesting he made the tour!

This tour was awesome and we even got to go to the Kevid crater which wasn't listed as part of the tour. The guides know a lot about everything and give great trivia and facts. Iceland is a beautiful island and being able to see it all and experience the geothermal lagoon was such a plus. I surprised my friend with this tour (she told me to book whatever) and she couldn't stop raving about how well it went. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to see all the sights and I would book again if I went back.
