The Golden Circle
The Golden Circle is among Iceland's most popular routes, and you'll get to experience it for yourself on this scenic tour. Your Reykjavik tour takes you to some of Iceland's incredible natural attractions that will provide you with memories that will last a lifetime. If you want to make the most of your time in Reykjavik, book your tour now.
The popular tourist route needs no introduction. The loop is home to a number of attractions including Strokkur, Gullfoss, and Thingvellir National Park. Strokkur is an amazing sight to behold: The geyser shoots up a water column up that reaches almost 100 feet! This occurs every 4-8 minutes, so you'll have plenty of chances for a photo. Another stop is Gullfoss, the majestic Iceland waterfall with a drop of more than 100 feet; you can stand next to it for a quick photo. You will also visit Thingvellir National Park, where you'll be able to see exactly where Eurasian and American tectonic plates pull apart little by little each year. At your next stop, Fridheimar Greenhouse Cultivation Centre, you will learn all about growing organic vegetables and the role of Iceland's geothermal heat in the process.

This is a comprehensive tour with highlights of the most important sights in the region - with the exception of a swim in the geothermal waters. The waterfalls are spectacular as are the geysers, hot mud pits, hot springs and the geologic wonder of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge rising to the surface. The ride through the countryside coupled with the expert narration is well worthwhile. Bring good walking shoes!

Wonderful excursion. Guide was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and who would not enjoy the wonder at each stop. Bus was full, but comfortable and free wifi!

Our ship was late and we missed the scheduled tour departure time. We called the tour company and they efficiently rebooked us on a later tour! The tour itself was great although the weather wasn't the best. The guide was excellent. The bus was comfortable (and had wifi too). Highly recommended!

excellent tour ; well conducted and well versed tour guide; plenty of free time also which is sometimes rare on tours; very nice bus as well and driver; we had difficulty locating the bus after getting off ncl jade due to large number of buses and there was no one with a sign for our particular bus; there were many reckvik excursion buses there and we weren't sure which one was ours; need a guide closer to where we come out of the entrance gate; we enjoyed our tour and would take it again with the shore excursions group from direct line;

The waterfalls were beautiful and it was an easy walk to good viewing points. We could also see a glacier from there. The geysers were fun and we enjoyed the way the area was open, with minimal signage and safety fencing. Nice to be treated like we're not idiots! Thingvellir National Park was amazing! We loved seeing the tectonic plate rifts and hearing the history and geography of the area. The walk from the bottom of the trail to the top was long and a bit steep, which was hard for some of the people on the tour. It was worth the walk , though, and our driver even told us where the free bathrooms were. This tour was an excellent value!
