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.

Reviewer: Jack
The actual tour was wonderful and in comfortable coaches. The initial administration/organization was not very smooth. I had a printed voucher was collected by one bus and taken to a second bus to join the tour. I was not advised that I still had to turn in the voucher at a ticket counter before boarding bus #2. A long wait at the ticket counter.

Reviewer: Carol Murphy
Great tour and guide who pointed out all the attractions as advertised. The Golden Circle tour is one of the most popular tours of the area and is an especially great deal from Shore Excursions Group with the Costco discount.

Reviewer: Marc Kanne
We were very fortunate to have a guide that not only knew much about the sites we would visit on the Golden Circle, but had a very good understanding of the culture, history and economics of Iceland. Perfect tour to experience the beautiful areas around Reykjavik.
