Jump aboard this popular Golden Circle sightseeing tour around Iceland's most popular attractions, all from the passenger seat an intimate 4x4 Toyota Land Cruiser, ensuring a personalised holiday experience.

The Golden Circle is the most popular sightseeing route in Iceland. Over this 300 km loop, you are given the opportunity to visit three of the best-known tourist attractions in Iceland; Geyser geothermal area, Gullfoss ("The Golden Falls") waterfall and Þingvellir National Park. 

But it is not only these "Big three" that makes this tour such a great option for hungry explorers; there are a great number of waterfalls, caves, craters and geothermal areas to take your time. This makes this route the perfect for a full day tour. 

You'll be picked up at your Hotel or Guesthouse in the Reykjavik area around 8:30 am. Our first stop is Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site situated on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Here, you can walk beside the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates, standing exposed from the earth.

From there, you'll be taken to Haukadalur geothermal area, home to the hot springs, Geysir and Strokkur. The former now lays dormant (even though it lent its name to geysers across the world), whilst Strokkur erupts routinely every five to ten minutes, often shooting water 25 m into the sky. 

After appreciating Haukadalur geothermal area, you will be driven a short distance to the picturesque and powerful waterfall, Gullfoss. This fantastic and iconic natural feature drops cascading water into a 32 m deep gorge. 

On our way back to Reykjavik, you will make 2-4 other stops at certain attractions chosen on the day. These stops could take place at majestic waterfalls, volcanic craters, geothermal areas or short hiking into the beautiful Icelandic nature.
