Full description
See the best of southwest Iceland on an 8-hour Golden Circle tour from Reykjavik. Visit the spectacular Geysir area, and go to the cascades of Gullfoss Waterfall. Discover where the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates meet in Þingvellir National Park. Travel to the geothermal area of Geysir. Marvel as the active hot spring of Strokkur spouts steaming water 30 meters into the air every 8 minutes. Continue to one of Iceland’s most iconic features at the Gullfoss Waterfall (“Golden Falls“). Feel the spray of the waters of the glacial River Hvítá as it plummets down into a 32-meter deep crevice. Next, enter Þingvellir National Park, where the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates are pulling apart at a rate of a few centimeters per year. Þingvellir was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its cultural value in 2004, and is the site of a stunning rift valley and the Rock of Law - the first Viking parliament. Marvel at the volcanic crater at Lake Kerið, and pass through the Icelandic farms of the south on your drive around the Golden Circle.

    Simon, our guide and driver were very friendly and kind. He had lots of knowledge about everything regarding the tour. The weather was terrible so he kept the bus warm and allowed hot drinks on the bus. He also was kind enough to drive us all the way to our door step due to the heavy rain. Thank you Simon!!! We enjoyed touring with you.

    Our guide "Fin" was fantastic, aside from the geographical wonders of Iceland (that are amazing) his constant commentary whilst driving from place to place was both informative and also filled with humour. The small bus was very comfortable, the group was small (I think 17 people). I'd highly recommend this tour.

    A great day even although it seemed we were getting on and off the bus loads of times. Guide was very knowledgeable. Driver was excellent as we hit a blizzard trying to get down from the hills but he coped well. Saw everything that was included in tour itinerary. One minus point is we could not charge phones etc as no plugs on board. As the tour lasts 8 hours this was a bit disappointing
