Full description
Set off on the experience of a lifetime with this breathtaking tour of Iceland’s famous Golden Circle. This is your chance to walk between continents, get up close to a gushing geyser and feel the phenomenal power of a roaring two-tier waterfall. As well as that, you’ll also visit a dazzling multi-colored volcanic crater and warm yourself in the soothing waters of the spectacular Sky Lagoon. Your memorable Golden Circle tour will begin with a short drive from the city to Þingvellir National Park (Thingvellir). You’ll discover a dramatic rift valley where the American and Eurasian tectonic plates pull apart along the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Here you can walk between two continents and visit the site of Iceland’s Viking parliament, which met here for a thousand years! The next stop on your journey is the Haukadalur geothermal area. The most spectacular spot is the hot spring, Geysir, which is Icelandic for “gush”. This is where you’ll find Strokkur, an “old faithful” that sends boiling water spouting high into the air every few minutes! It’s a thrilling place, where you’ll feel the raw power of nature rumbling under your feet! Gullfoss is next, a short drive further inland. This glorious waterfall thunders over two tiers into a deep ravine, powered by meltwater from the second-largest glacier in Iceland. The “Gold Falls” are a magical sight, with several viewing platforms to enjoy - look out for rainbows on sunny days! Before we return to the city, we have one more special sight to enjoy - the colorful volcanic crater at Kerið. This stunning 3000-year-old crater is streaked with red rocks, dark green mosses and a blue lake, which makes Kerið very memorable. Your Golden Circle adventure will end with an extraordinary experience - a visit to the Sky Lagoon! One of Iceland’s newest geothermal spas, you’ll enjoy a soothing soak in an incredible 250-foot-long heated infinity pool with a swim-up bar and ocean views. You’ll have the opportunity to select one of two options with different access levels - the Pure Pass or the Sky Pass.

Eddie was an amazing tour guide! He was super knowledgeable, added humor and history to our experience and took us to so many places to enjoy! He squeezed in extra stops along the way to show us everything the Golden Circle had to offer! We had a blast seeing all the beautiful stops and I would highly recommend doing this tour!

Guide was great! Very knowledgeable. It’s a long day and there’s not a lot of time to spend at each place, that’s my only complaint. If I were to do it again, I’d like to spend more time looking at the tectonic plates. Be aware that bathroom facilities are few and far between. The Sky Lagoon at the end of the day was incredible! So, glad we chose that instead of Blue Lagoon.

A great combination of activities with a wonderful driver and guide - very knowledgeable and informative commentary about each of the sites (he didn’t tell us his name or wear a name tag so regret that I can’t recommend him specifically!). Sufficient time at each stop for viewing and short walks - it didn’t feel rushed. The Sky Lagoon geothermal and 7-step ritual was a great way to relax and warm up at the end of a rainy and cool day.
