Indulge your senses with the best of Iceland when you join this eight-hour Golden Circle tour with local farm visits and food. Those who would like to experience the culture of Iceland by enjoying its delicious food while relaxing will enjoy this full-day Golden Circle tour. 

Your unforgettable day begins when your guide picks you up at your hotel in Reykjavik, making the start of your fun-filled private tour convenient. For one day, you’ll go on a sightseeing tour of the essential sites in Iceland, visit some of its farms, and learn more about its local food and production. 

While sightseeing in Iceland, you may encounter strong winds, rain, and other weather events. For maximum comfort, it’s best to wear weather-appropriate and weatherproof clothes. You’ll also be taking short walks of up to 15 or 30 minutes on hills and stairs, so equip yourself with sturdy and comfortable footwear. 

Your first stop for this private tour is the Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO site full of breathtaking views and historical places. Thingvellir sits between two continents and has a visible rift showing the boundaries of these continents. 

After spending some time in Thingvellir, you’ll visit the dairy farm at Efstidalur to eat and refuel. You’ll have the chance to taste one of the best-tasting ice creams in Iceland and perhaps the world here. The same family has operated the farm since 1750, allowing you to taste authentic Icelandic food. 

Your next stop is at the famous Geysir geothermal area, where you’ll see geysers and its most famous attraction, Strokkur. This geyser erupts every five to ten minutes, so you’re sure you can witness this unique phenomenon. This short gap also allows you to get perfectly timed pictures of the geyser’s eruption.  

Next to visit is the Gullfoss waterfall, also known as the “Golden Waterfall.” The waterfall is an important site in Iceland, as its story is almost as inspiring as its mighty waters. In the 1920s, it became a symbol of environmental preservation after a father and a daughter prevented using the waterfall as fuel for a hydroelectric plant. 

If tomatoes make you think of Italy instead of Iceland, get ready to be surprised. You’ll have a chance to taste the best tomato soup in the country when you visit Fridheimar farm and take your lunch here. The farm is open to tourists and travelers all year round.

After a delicious lunch, you’ll be back where you started, at your accommodation, where your guide will drop you off with a full belly and heart. 

This journey is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to explore the countryside of Iceland and its culture. It’s a private tour that will give you a unique perspective into the Golden Circe and its many wonders. Moreover, since this is a private tour, you can add extra activities, such as snowmobiling or snorkeling, for an additional fee. 

Book your private eight-hour sightseeing tour of the Golden Circle for up to six people, featuring the local food and farm visits to make it truly unique. Check availability now by choosing a date.
