Want to stay off the paved road while you enjoy the Golden Circle? Don‘t feel like milling around in a massive bus, with 50 other people? Join the Golden Buggy Circle and bring sightseeing to a whole new level!
You will be picked up from your pick-up location in the city and drive for 20 minutes to base camp, where you will be fitted with the gear you need for this awesome journey. Then you continue for another 30 minutes to Þingvellir National Park.
You will have time to enjoy the park's beautiful scenery, learn all about its rich history and interesting geology before it is time to strap in!
The buggies are waiting for you at the National Park, and after a short safety briefing, you drive into the wild, following mountain tracks for the ultimate driving experience in hauntingly desolate landscapes.
These gravel roads are only open during the summer months and we would be very surprised if we met anyone en route, except of course at two of the most popular tourist destinations in Iceland; Geysir and Gullfoss.
Geysir hot spring area, in Haukadalur, has few bubbling mud pools and one spouting geyser named Strokkur which erupts regularly every 8 to 10 minutes, sending hot water flying 15-20 meters high up in the air.
The oldest accounts of hot springs date back to the 13th century, when earthquakes in the area caused significant changes in the landscape, creating several new hot springs. Changes in the activities of the geysers are strongly related to earthquake activities, which are incredibly common in Iceland.
Gullfoss waterfall is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Iceland. The wide Hvítá river, stemming from glacier Langjökull, rushes southward, flowing down into a wide curved three-step cliff and then abruptly plunges in two stages. Mostly known for its beauty, Gullfoss waterfall has become one of the most popular tourist attractions in the country, and should not be missed.
You will now take a similar outback route back to Þingvellir, where your coach is patiently waiting to take you back to Reykjavik.
