Private 5-Hour Golden Circle Sightseeing Tour with Reykjavik Transfer
Enjoy a private experience discovering Iceland’s top attractions plus a few bonus sites on this five-hour tour from Reykjavik. Travelers keen to see the much-loved diverse natural wonders of the Golden Circle sightseeing route and other nearby gems should book this tour now.
Today’s excursion begins with pick-up from Reykjavik in a private vehicle. Over the next five hours, you’ll check off a few of Iceland’s must-visit bucket list attractions with an unforgettable Golden Circle tour.
Because this is a private tour, there’s no waiting around for other travelers, and you can maximize your time at each location. First up, your driver will take you to Thingvellir National Park, the first of three Golden Circle attractions.
Thingvellir is a location of breathtaking beauty and an excellent place to appreciate waterfalls, trees, and rugged natural terrain. It’s also rich in history as the home to Althingi, the longest-surviving parliament globally.
Yet another outstanding feature of Thingvellir is its geological significance. The National Park is the only place you can walk between two continents. The Eurasian and North American tectonic plates gradually separate a little more each year, a fascinating phenomenon to consider while you stroll here.
The second Golden Circle attraction you’ll visit today is the Gullfoss waterfall, known as the “Golden falls.” On sunny days, a rainbow may shine in front of the falls, creating a beautiful effect. Whether you see a rainbow or not, Gullfoss is a stunning natural treasure you won’t want to miss.
The final Golden Circle attraction is the Geysir geothermal area in the Haukadalur valley, a superb contrast to Thingvellir and Gullfoss falls. Geysir’s landscape has boiling mud pits, fumaroles, and geysers, an otherworldly spectacle.
This geothermal area got its name from the Great Geysir, a dormant geyser. However, you can rest assured you’ll witness some awe-inspiring geothermal activity here. Strokkur is the show’s star, erupting with a dramatic spray of water every 5-10 minutes.
Your private excursion today offers more than a standard Golden Circle tour. You’ll also see two geothermal power plants, Hveragerdi village, Skalholt cathedral, and Kerid crater.
The Kerid crater is another impressive natural gem. Travelers can take a short walk up to and around the top. When you reach the top, you’ll look down to see a beautiful crater lake filled with turquoise water. Make sure you have your camera ready to capture the perfect shot.
Don’t miss this memorable five-hour private tour of the Golden Circle, Kerid crater, and more. Check availability now by choosing a date.
