Full description
Iceland beckons and invites you to discover its many joys and exquisitely breathtaking sights with this Golden Circle Tour and Northern Light Tour. The Golden Circle Tour is a full day of non-stop excitement and fun, beginning in Reykjavik. Thingvellir Park is the first stop on the way, then you head to Geysir, where you can see hot geysers spouting high into the air at regular intervals. You will then experience Gulfoss waterfall before visiting the Kerid volcanic crater. Return to Reykjavik in the evening between 4-5 PM. Rest a while, freshen up, enjoy a leisurely dinner, and then get set for the Northern Lights tour (weather permitting). The Golden Circle tour would be incomplete without a Northern Lights tour for which Iceland is so famous. If the skies are clear and the conditions are just right, you are in for a jaw dropping spectacle. Some guests are so enamoured that they spend the entire night out there, lost in the wonder of creation.

An awesome day tour of the Golden Circle, and then a magical night seeing the Aurora Borealis. Our tour guide was very good with explaining the tour stops and finding the perfect location to see the Aurora. An unforgettable experience!
