Visit the scenic Golden Circle and take a hop-on hop-off bus to enjoy the sights of Reykjavik on this exciting tour of Iceland. This combo tour, which occurs over two or three days, lets you explore the most popular tourist route and the capital of Iceland and is perfect for all ages and the adventurous at heart.

For the Golden Circle day tour, you'll meet your guides and group at a bus stop in Reykjavik. You can also arrange pick-up from a point closer to your hotel. Once everyone is gathered, you'll set out around this beautiful, world-famous sightseeing circuit. 

The Golden Circle tour features the Thingvellir National Park, the Geysir Geothermal Area, and the Gullfoss Waterfall.

Thingvellir National Park has breathtaking gorges, crevices, and cliff faces that riddle the park, which attract a staggering number of visitors annually. The park is easily accessible by the Vallavegur road, which remains passable for most of the year.

The Geysir Geothermal Area is a geological marvel that's an essential landmark for your trip. The Strokkur geyser erupts every four to eight minutes, shooting superheated water up 30 feet (9 meters) in the air from a bubbling pool.

The Gullfoss Waterfall is another popular tourist attraction on the Golden Circle tour. The lasting impression left by viewing this beautiful feature on the Hvita river is one sought after by many tourists visiting the Golden Circle Tour and Iceland in general.

The first step in the waterfall is 36 feet high (11 meters), while the second is 69 feet high (21 meters), surrounded by 230-foot (70 meters) walls of the canyon. In addition to its visual appeal, the waterfall also boasts a rich history of ownership that vividly explains the tenacious nature of Icelandic locals.

After visiting the three main destinations of the Golden Circle, you'll also be visiting Fridheimar Greenhouse Cultivation Center. The center is an excellent place to learn about agriculture in Iceland and the role that geothermal energy plays in growing their food.

The next day, back in the capital, you can view the tourist attractions of Reykjavik from the hop-on-hop-off bus. This sightseeing bus allows tourists to exit when they arrive at an exciting location and conveniently hop back on when they are ready to continue the tour.

The hop-on-hop-off bus traverses most of the famous tourist attractions in Iceland, such as its Art and Maritime museums, shopping malls and streets, cafes, and different harbors to give you an ocean view. Bus tour tickets are valid for 24 or 48 hours, depending on your preferences.
