Full description

Embark on a bus tour of Iceland’s legendary Golden Circle and soak in the thermal waters of the Secret Lagoon. Explore the southwest, including the spectacular Geysir area, Gullfoss Waterfall, Kerið Volcano, and Þingvellir National Park.

After pickup in central Reykjavik, the day's first stop is at the Kerið Volcanic Crater. Here you can circle the crater top along a winding path and descend into the crater to reach the lake at its center.

Next, head to the Secret Lagoon where you'll have 1.5 hours to unwind in the thermal waters and admire the peaceful surroundings.

Continue to the active hot spring of Strokkur and watch it spout steaming water 30 meters every 8 minutes. Arrive at Gullfoss Waterfall and feel the spray of the glacial Hvítá River as it plummets down into a 32-meter-deep crevice.

Next, visit Þingvellir National Park, where the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates are pulling apart at a rate of a few centimeters every year. Þingvellir was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2004.

Our guide Omar was friendly, fun and full of knowledge about the area. He is obviously very proud of his island country and loves to share stories. My only complaint, and it’s a small one, is they we would have enjoyed another 10 minutes in the geyser area. Overall a great tour and an excellent experience.

Brilliant experience, the weather was against us but Devin (not Kevin lol) and HBO made it an amazing adventure. My only gripe is the fact they ask you to be half an hour early for pick up but then turn up late anyway. Nevertheless wouldn’t hesitate to use them again

Pick up was at 8am prompt. David was very pleasant and informative all day, taking us to our various destinations and making sure everyone was back safe and on time. We were given a decent amount of time to wander around the sites and to go to the Secret Lagoon which is in the middle of the trip when I had assumed it would be at the end, but that was a very minor issue!
