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.

My husband and I took this tour and enjoyed it very much. The guide had a lot of information for us, and we were happy to have enough time at the waterfall, and the walk along the two tectonic plates.

Despite the rain this was a great trip. It was a little hard locating the bus also. Our guide was very good and we learned a lot. Would recommend this tour to friends.

We saw incredible sights outside of Reykjavik and this strip is a traveller's must to develop an appreciation for Iceland outside the city: treeless rocky vistas; geysers; spectacular falls; glaciers in the distance; the Mid Atlantic ridge where two tectonic plates (North American and Eurasian) uniquely meet above ground so you can see it, and watching people scuba dive in the transition waters; visiting with "locals" in the shops who LOVE their country despite the winter darkness and cold and rain and wind and snow. Wow! My Southern California eyes saw their "quiet" country through their passionate eyes and it changed my perspective, and me, for the better. What unwitting ambassadors! We took this trip from the cruise port on our one-day stop in the country. It was a long day but the bus was comfortable and the guide was terrific and so very rewarding. I can't wait to return!

This tour was very well organized and took us to the highlights of the Golden Circle (Geysir Hot Springs, Gulfoss Waterfall, Thingvellir Park and rift valley), as well as a stop at the extremely interesting Fridheimar farm greenhouse (an amazing highlight of the tour!). Our guide was well informed, the pace of the tour was appropriate, with adequate time at stops to enjoy what they had to offer. I strongly recommend this tour!
