Maximize your holiday in Iceland and see waterfalls, unique geological formations, and hot springs by joining this private tour of the Golden Circle from Reykjavik. Travelers who want to see some of the most breathtaking sites in the land of fire and ice will enjoy the itinerary of this private excursion.

For your convenience, this day tour in the Golden Circle begins with a pick-up from your hotel in the Icelandic capital. You'll meet your knowledgeable local guide in Reykjavik, who'll serve as your driver and primary source of information for the next nine hours.

The Golden Circle is a famous tourist route in Iceland, spanning 190 miles (300 kilometers). Travelers frequent this area because of its proximity to Reykjavik, making it an ideal location to see many attractions in just one day.

Your first stop is Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site with historical and geological significance. As you explore, you'll immediately notice the dramatic landscape, with its rugged cliffs and vast open plains marking the rift between the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates.

Two notable features of Thingvellir are the Oxararfoss waterfall and the Almannagja rift. While Oxararfoss is known for its beautiful cascade and rocky bottom, Almannagja boasts a breathtaking gorge with a well-maintained trail.

Besides its natural beauty, the Icelandic park has a remarkable history that remains vital to Icelanders. The guide will tell you more about this before moving to your next stop.

Leaving Thingvellir behind, the journey takes you to the Geysir geothermal area, home to the famous Geysir and Strokkur geysers. While in this area, you'll notice that the field is crisscrossed by steam vents and mud pits rising from the ground. 

Get your cameras ready because, every few minutes, Strokkur shoots a column of boiling water up to 66 feet (20 meters) into the sky. It's an awe-inspiring sight you won't want to miss.

After witnessing the geothermal power of Strokkur, your next destination is the magnificent Gullfoss waterfall. Gullfoss, also known as the "Golden Falls," is a true natural wonder, with its glacial water at 105 feet (32) meters plunging into a rugged canyon.

This Icelandic waterfall has multiple viewing decks you can experience for the best view. On a clear, sunny day, you may see a rainbow shooting above its mist.

Before returning to Reykjavik, the guide will take you to Fludir village to visit the Secret Lagoon. The lagoon is the oldest swimming pool in Iceland and an ideal location for a relaxing geothermal bath. 

Entrance to the natural pool is already part of your package. However, you're encouraged to bring your bathing suit and towel if you don't want to rent on-site.

After a satisfying time in the Golden Circle, you'll drive back to Reykjavik, marking the end of this private sightseeing tour.

Visit the Gullfoss waterfall and dip in the Secret Lagoon's relaxing waters on this nine-hour Golden Circle tour. Check availability now by choosing a date.
