Tour description

If you ask a local which tour to take for a taste of Iceland near Reykjavík, they’ll likely point you to the Golden Circle. This tour is perfect for anyone who wants to experience South Iceland’s top sights but is short on time. In just 6.5 hours, you’ll dive into Icelandic history at Þingvellir National Park, not just geologically and
historically significant being the location of the oldest parliament in the world. Witness the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates above ground. Marvel at the geothermal wonders of Geysir and be overwhelmed by the majestic Gullfoss waterfall.

We’ll start our journey from Reykjavík and head straight to the geothermal hotspot of Geysir. Here, you’ll be amazed by the Strokkur geyser, which shoots steam and water high into the air every few minutes. (Did you know this is where the word “geyser” comes from?) Next up is Gullfoss, Iceland’s most famous waterfall. The two tiers of water crashing down are a sight to behold, and if you walk down the ladder, you’ll get an even better view! Our final stop is the breathtaking Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO site.

This tour is the most express way to see the Golden Circle in all its splendour, if you are in a rush to see all Iceland has to offer or need a bus tour that starts with a later time than the usual tours, this is the perfect option for you!
