Full description

See the best of southwest Iceland on an 8-hour Golden Circle tour by bus 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, before returning to your original starting point in Reykjavik.

We highly recommend this guided tour- it was a fantastic day out and a trip everyone could enjoy. Our guide Tom and the driver, magic (yes that’s his name… so he says!) we’re absolutely brilliant and really did make us feel welcome. Tom was incredibly informative and made everything really fun for the group. His energy kept the spirits high and he gave us the perfect amount of time at each stop to enjoy the views. There are plenty toilet and refreshment stops and you are never on the coach for too long which was great given the time you are out. We were out for just under 9 hours and honestly was worth far more than the price we paid. Thank you!

This is a good / traditional / must-do tour. Sites visited are very nice and this is a good option if you want to explore them at a good value for money. As with any big tour, be prepared to not spend too much time at each site, wait at the bus and deal with other passengers, according to your luck. Would recommend.

Tom and Magic has just the right amount of story telling and rest time. My son and I missed the bus and the puked over and waited for us and made us feel very comfortable. The tour was very through …from geysers to waterfalls to craters! Stunningly beautiful. We managed a 6 mile walk through the journey so don’t let an 8-hour bus ride make you think it’s all sitting.
