Come along on a journey to the most renowned sites in Iceland on this all-day tour of the most popular places in the whole country. A Super Jeep will pick you up in style in Reykjavík and spirit you out of the city to see the magnificent Golden Circle, on this tour perfect for any enthusiasts of nature.

The Golden Circle includes three fabulous locations: Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Geysir geothermal area and Gullfoss waterfall. At Þingvellir, in addition to the history of the site, where a parliament was founded in approximately 930 AD, there is also Drekkingarhylur ('The Drowning Pond'), where women accused of practising witchcraft were drowned in the Middle Ages.

For natural wonders, there is the famed Almannagjá Gorge, which marks the divide between two continental plates, drifting ever so slightly apart each year. The sparkling waters of Silfra fissure, a popular spot for diving and snorkelling, mark the north shore of Þingvallavatn, Iceland’s largest natural lake.

Next, you’ll visit Geysir geothermal area, an exciting attraction with bubbling mud pots, hissing steam vents, roiling fumaroles and, of course, the geysers themselves. Though Geysir, the most famous, has gone mostly silent in recent decades, its neighbour Strokkur is quite the show-off: it erupts approximately every 10 minutes, hurling water as high as 40 m (130 ft) into the air.

The final stop on the Golden Circle is the mighty Gullfoss, a waterfall whose power puts the quintessential babbling brook to shame. Take the paved path right down to the waterfall and feel the vibrations in your feet and the spray on your face as it churns beneath you.

After a lunch break in the town of Selfoss, you will be taken to the famous Blue Lagoon to relax away the exertions of the day in the silica-rich water with its soothing, skin-softening properties. Just remember to book your ticket to the lagoon beforehand. You’ll then return to Reykjavík just in time to partake in the bustling nightlife of the city.

Don't miss these famous locations. Check availability above by pressing by choosing a date.

Awesome tour and really enjoyed spending the day with our tour guide who managed a few additional stops and was very flexible in terms of travel arrangements and explaining the history of Iceland and sharing details around growing up. Would recommend this tour for anyone. Johann also would be happy to personalize beyond the description if you had a unique need or desire.

My husband and I had a wonderful experience with Johann while visiting Iceland. This tour is only a bit more expensive than the bus tours and we thought it was worth every penny. It was just the three of us on the tour. Johann, who was born and raised in Iceland, was very knowledgable about the history of Iceland as well as the stops that we made. My husband and I tend to not linger much at sites, so we got through most of the stops on the tour pretty quickly. Johann was able to take us to some additional unscheduled stops, such as a black sand beach, a fishing village, and we also got to see the Icelandic sheep as they were being herded down from the highlands that day. We had a tasty lunch at a little cafe and even got a little extra time at the Blue Lagoon because Johann got us there early. At first I was a little hesitant to book this tour because of the one hour time at the Blue Lagoon, but he told us not to rush ourselves and we were ready to get out of the water after an hour anyway. Johann picked us up and dropped us off right at our hotel, and we appreciated his stories and he made great conversation. I had sent him a few questions by email prior to our trip and he responded quickly. I'd recommend this tour to anyone interested in seeing the Golden Circle and learning more about Iceland, and if you are on the fence between a large bus tour and this one, DEFINITELY take this tour instead.
