Golden Circle and Northern Lights | Live Tour with Audio Guide in 10 Languages

Come along for two essential Icelandic experiences: sightseeing around the Golden Circle, and hunting for the Northern Lights. This tour should appeal to all those who seek to immerse themselves in Icelandic nature and witness one of the world’s greatest wonders.Your tour starts at Reykjavík Terminal where you will meet up with your guide or you will be picked up (available at extra cost) from outside your accommodation to board a bus that is part of a brand new fleet and has Wi-Fi, a tablet for each guest, and an audio guide which provides commentary in 10 different languages. Of course, there will also be an expert guide on board to help you with any queries.The first stop is Þingvellir National Park. This is the most important historical site in Iceland, where early settlers founded their first parliament in 930 AD. This parliament continues to this day in Reykjavík, making it the longest-running, ongoing institution of its kind.Þingvellir is located in the valley between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. Iceland is the only place this rift comes above sea level, and nowhere is it more apparent than here.The next stop will be the Geysir Geothermal Area in the Haukadalur Valley. This area is renowned for its hot-springs, most notably its two geysers. Geysir itself no longer erupts regularly, but its neighbour Strokkur blasts water up to 20-metres (65 feet) high every five to ten minutes.Once you have seen it erupt several times, you will move onto the third and final stop of Golden Circle, Gullfoss. This is a magnificent waterfall, falling in two tiers from a height of 32 metres (105 feet) into an ancient canyon. You can witness the majesty of these falls at a viewing platform right beside where the water is dropping.With the three sights of the Golden Circle complete, you will return to Reykjavík where you'll have a few hours to unwind before you are picked up again for the Northern Lights hunt. Once you set off on your Northern Lights hunt, there are no set destinations; your guide will follow the weather online and direct your driver to the spots with the least cloud cover. They are experts at finding the Northern Lights and know all the darkest, most secluded viewing locations.Watching the auroras descend from the stars is a magical experience. If you want to take some photographs, your guide can help you with the settings of your camera. There will also be tripods on board which you can use to get the best results.After a three-hour hunt, you will return to Reykjavík. If you are not lucky enough to catch the lights, you will get another try for free.So do not hesitate. Jump aboard for a tour that combines two incredible, essential Icelandic experiences.

Golden Circle and Northern Lights | Live Tour with Audio Guide in 10 Languages

Come along for two essential Icelandic experiences: sightseeing around the Golden Circle, and hunting for the Northern Lights. This tour should appeal to all those who seek to immerse themselves in Icelandic nature and witness one of the world’s greatest wonders.Your tour starts at Reykjavík Terminal where you will meet up with your guide or you will be picked up (available at extra cost) from outside your accommodation to board a bus that is part of a brand new fleet and has Wi-Fi, a tablet for each guest, and an audio guide which provides commentary in 10 different languages. Of course, there will also be an expert guide on board to help you with any queries.The first stop is Þingvellir National Park. This is the most important historical site in Iceland, where early settlers founded their first parliament in 930 AD. This parliament continues to this day in Reykjavík, making it the longest-running, ongoing institution of its kind.Þingvellir is located in the valley between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. Iceland is the only place this rift comes above sea level, and nowhere is it more apparent than here.The next stop will be the Geysir Geothermal Area in the Haukadalur Valley. This area is renowned for its hot-springs, most notably its two geysers. Geysir itself no longer erupts regularly, but its neighbour Strokkur blasts water up to 20-metres (65 feet) high every five to ten minutes.Once you have seen it erupt several times, you will move onto the third and final stop of Golden Circle, Gullfoss. This is a magnificent waterfall, falling in two tiers from a height of 32 metres (105 feet) into an ancient canyon. You can witness the majesty of these falls at a viewing platform right beside where the water is dropping.With the three sights of the Golden Circle complete, you will return to Reykjavík where you'll have a few hours to unwind before you are picked up again for the Northern Lights hunt. Once you set off on your Northern Lights hunt, there are no set destinations; your guide will follow the weather online and direct your driver to the spots with the least cloud cover. They are experts at finding the Northern Lights and know all the darkest, most secluded viewing locations.Watching the auroras descend from the stars is a magical experience. If you want to take some photographs, your guide can help you with the settings of your camera. There will also be tripods on board which you can use to get the best results.After a three-hour hunt, you will return to Reykjavík. If you are not lucky enough to catch the lights, you will get another try for free.So do not hesitate. Jump aboard for a tour that combines two incredible, essential Icelandic experiences.
