For those who are short on time or don’t want to rent a car during their visit to Iceland, a bus tour of the main sights is a fantastic option. This small-group tour with a maximum of 18 guests allows you to quickly, safely, and affordably see the Golden Circle and Blue Lagoon.
Your day starts with meeting your experienced guide at one of the designated hotels and pickup spots around Reykjavik. Once your group has all boarded the minibus, it is time to head out of Reykjavik towards the Golden Circle route.
The first stop on the route is the awe-inspiring Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO world heritage site and the location of the world’s oldest still-active parliament. This historical area is also a geological wonder, as it is where the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates meet and one of the only places in the world where the Mid-Atlantic ridge is above water.
After Thingvellir, you will make your way to the Geysir geothermal area, home to the now-still Great Geysir, which gave its name to geysers worldwide. This active geothermal area is home to boiling mud pots, steaming fumaroles, and the very active Strokkur geyser, which erupts every five to ten minutes and reaches heights of up to 65 feet (20 meters).
The magnificent Gullfoss waterfall is your next destination on the Golden Circle and one that is beloved by visitors from around the world. This iconic and powerful waterfall features a double drop, with the first being 36 feet (11 meters) and the second being 69 feet (21 meters).
Finally, you will visit the unique Kerid volcanic crater, created over 3,000 years ago when an erupting volcano collapsed in on itself. Your entrance fee is included in the price of the tour, allowing you to enter the crater area to view the teal water and colorful slopes that make this spot so famous.
After a day of exploring the Golden Circle, it is time to relax. Your guide will take you toward the Reykjanes peninsula, where the world-famous Blue Lagoon geothermal spa is located.
The Blue Lagoon is famed for its geothermally heated milky blue waters filled with beneficial minerals such as silica and salt. Your tour includes the Comfort admission ticket and allows you to enjoy around two hours of soaking away all your worries in this beautiful location.
