Discover some of the most famous natural attractions of the land of fire and ice by joining this eight-hour private tour of the Golden Circle. This exclusive experience offers the convenience of a private tour and guide, allowing you to explore amazing waterfalls, geysers, rift valleys, and more at your own pace. 

Your day trip in Iceland begins with a convenient pick-up from your accommodation in Reykjavik. From the moment you step into the spacious vehicle, you'll enjoy a personalized and seamless experience, free from the hassle of coordinating with large groups.

In addition, a private tour offers more privacy and flexibility. You won't need to wait for other travelers, and you can customize your itinerary to suit your interests and preferences.

Your private excursion is tailored just for you, whether you want to spend more time at a particular site or make an unscheduled stop.

A friendly, English-speaking guide passionate about sharing Iceland's beauty and history will lead your tour. You'll gain deeper insights into each destination, hear fascinating stories, and have the opportunity to ask questions anytime.

For the next eight hours, the guide will take you on a scenic journey through the Golden Circle. This area is Iceland's most popular sightseeing route because of its diverse attractions and proximity to Reykjavik.

Your first stop is the Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here, you'll witness dramatic geological formations caused by the separation between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates.

As you stroll Thingvellir, you'll visit the Oxararfoss waterfall, the Almannagja gorge, and the Thingvallavatn lake.

Next, you'll visit the Geysir geothermal area, home to the famous Strokkur geyser. Strokkur erupts every 5-10 minutes, shooting heated water up to 66 feet (20 meters) into the air, an incredible sight to witness.

This area is also dotted with steaming hot springs and bubbling mud pots, creating a surreal and mesmerizing landscape.

Your journey continues to Gullfoss, one of Iceland's most iconic waterfalls. Known as the "Golden Falls," Gullfoss features a spectacular two-tiered cascade that plunges into a deep canyon.

Gullfoss has several viewing points where you can admire its water flow or take stunning photos. If your visit falls on a sunny day, you may see rainbows above its heavy mist.

To enhance your experience, you can customize your excursion with additional stops on the Golden Circle. Just note that some of these stops may incur additional charges.

You can visit the Kerid crater, a volcanic crater lake with colorful slopes, or relax at the Laugarvatn Fontana spa for a soothing geothermal bath. 

Alternatively, you can enjoy a unique experience at the Fridheimar farm and restaurant, where tomatoes are grown year-round in geothermal greenhouses.

Whether you include additional stops on your itinerary, the unforgettable experience ends with a convenient drop-off back to your accommodation in Reykjavik.

Experience the best of Iceland's Golden Circle on this private tour, designed to provide an intimate and memorable adventure. Check availability now by choosing a date.
