Join this small-group afternoon Golden Circle tour where you will have the chance to experience and explore the top three locations in Iceland: Þingvellir National Park, Geysir geothermal area, and Gullfoss waterfall. Those visiting this land of fire and ice should not let this tour pass them by.
The Golden Circle route is by far the most favoured sightseeing tour in Iceland as it includes some of the most renowned and exciting attractions in the country. You'll be picked up from Reykjavík by your professional driver and guide and taken on a journey of these remarkable sites.
This six-hour guided tour will start with Þingvellir, one of Iceland's three national parks. The park has an incredible history as it is here where the nation's parliament was founded over a thousand years ago. However, it is not just the rich history that attracts visitors but the park's visual beauty. Þingvellir is situated close to volcanos and is sprinkled with lava rock and moss.
You'll be enjoying the wonders of the park while walking between two continents, as the park is located between the two tectonic plates, the North American plate and the Eurasian plate. Your guide will be going through the extraordinary history of Þingvellir while showing you the wonders of the park, including a short hike up to Öxarárfoss waterfall.
The next stop is the Geysir geothermal area in Haukadalur valley. Here you'll be able to see the geyser, Strokkur, throw fuming hot water high up in the air every ten minutes or so. Along with this rare natural phenomenon, you'll also enjoy the sights of hot pools, fumaroles and clay pots.
It is now time for the grand finale. The final stop of the Golden Circle tour is Gullfoss waterfall or 'The Golden Waterfall'. Power and beauty are combined in this spectacular cascade as glacial water from Iceland's second largest glacier, Langjökull, plummets down in two tiers into an ancient canyon.
