Private 9-Hour Golden Circle Tour From Reykjavik With Optional Secret Lagoon or Blue Lagoon
Be captivated by Iceland's famous Golden Circle as you visit its fantastic attractions: Thingvellir National Park, the Geysir geothermal area, and the Gullfoss waterfall. If you want to go on a private adventure to witness the best of Iceland's magnificent landscapes and learn more about its rich history and culture, then this tour is for you!
The trip will start from Reykjavik, where you will be picked up and introduced to your friendly and knowledgeable guide. You don't need to worry about other guests, as this is a private tour. You will then drive out of the city's limits towards the 190-mile (300 kilometers) route known as the Golden Circle.
Your first stop is the Thingvellir National Park. This extraordinary place carries Iceland's valuable history and showcases the country's incredible terrains.
Thingvellir's many fissures, gorges, and lava fields will amaze you. Be ready to experience the national park's breathtaking landscapes created by continental drift, volcanic activity, and glacial water.
On this trip, you'll discover that Thingvellir National Park sits on top of a rift valley and is one of the few places on Earth where the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, which separates the North American tectonic plates, is visible above ground.
You'll also learn during your trip that Thingvellir National Park is where Iceland's first parliament was established, and it's the only national park in the country that has been given UNESCO heritage status.
After exploring Thingvellir, you'll move on to your next location, the Geysir Geothermal Area.
Here you will witness the Strokkur geyser spouting jets of boiling water from the ground. This mighty eruption of Geysir's neighbor happens every few minutes, so you don't have to worry about missing such a spectacular geothermal show.
Geysir hot spring is well-known for giving all geysers in the world their name, and you will see this beautiful natural wonder up close on this tour.
You'll then travel the short distance to Gullfoss waterfall.
Iceland's second-largest glacier, Langjokull, feeds this stunning feature. The fall's glacial water flows into the river Hvitva and surges down into the ancient Gullfossgjufur canyon, creating an incredible sight to behold.
Finally, after exploring the three attraction sites of the Golden Circle, it's time to relax by taking a dip at one of Iceland's geothermal pools. Choose between the famous Blue Lagoon or Secret Lagoon and conclude your tour with a nice bath in the relaxing geothermal waters.
The Blue Lagoon is renowned for its azure waters and healing qualities. The Secret Lagoon is closer to the Golden Circle and is fed by a natural geothermal area with a geyser.
