Private 10-Hour Golden Circle and Kerid Crater Tour with Transfer From Reykjavik
Enjoy a day of sightseeing at Iceland’s top attractions by booking this incredible 10-hour private tour of the Golden Circle. Those eager to experience the outstanding beauty of Thingvellir National Park, Gullfoss Falls, and Geysir geothermal area should book this private day trip now.
Because this is a private tour, it’s completely customizable. A standard private tour visits Thingvellir National Park, Gullfoss Falls, Geysir Geothermal, and Kerid Crater. You can add Secret Lagoon bathing, snowmobiling, the Fontana spa, the Blue Lagoon spa, or snorkeling for an extra fee.
This tour starts with pickup from your choice of Reykjavik locations. Your driver will then take you to the first of today’s attractions, Thingvellir National Park. You can traverse a beautiful natural landscape dotted with water-filled ravines, birch trees, and moss-covered rocks here.
Not only does Thingvellir National Park boast excellent scenery, but it’s also a geographically and historically significant place. The park is famous for a few reasons, the first being that it’s home to the oldest surviving parliament globally.
Secondly, the Eurasian and American tectonic plates are slowly moving apart, making this the only place you can walk between two continents. More recently, Thingvellir has made the spotlight as one of the filming locations for the Game of Thrones series.
Next, you will visit the Geysir geothermal area, an otherworldly landscape of steaming fumaroles and boiling mud pits. You only need to wait a few minutes to see the impressive Strokkur geyser explode in the air. This geyser can reach up to 130 feet (40 meters).
Your third stop is Gullfoss falls, also known as the “Golden Falls.” A few theories explain how it got this nickname, one of them being from the golden-brown color of the water on sunny days. The sunshine also produces a rainbow before the falls, creating a perfect photo opportunity.
The fun continues after checking the Golden Circle attractions from your bucket list. Now it’s time for any optional extras you have booked, such as bathing in a top-rated geothermal spa or zooming across a pure white landscape on a snowmobile. If no add-ons are booked, there’s still one more natural wonder to see today.
Kerid Crater is too good to miss when you’re on a Golden Circle tour. Take a leisurely hike up this volcanic crater and peer into the scenic lake that sits inside it, a superb photo opportunity. Walk around the top of the crater and down to the lake if you choose to. Finally, your driver will take you back to Reykjavik for the evening.
