Full description
Experience Iceland’s 2 most visited natural attractions, the Golden Circle and the Blue Lagoon, in one day on a comfortable and convenient minibus tour. Departing Reykjavik, your first stop is at Thingvellir National park, the point at which the Eurasian and American tectonic plates converge. Amble through the stunning, lake-filled area, hopping back and forth between continental boundaries, and view the spot at which Icelandic parliament was held from 930-1798. Afterwards, you’ll head to the Geysir hot spring. Home to a variety of geothermal pools which reach temperatures upwards of 200 degrees, the main event of the area is the Strokkur geyser, which erupts a plume of boiling water and steam up to 100 feet in the air every few minutes. In the Geysir area, you can grab a bite to eat if you so desire, before heading to Gullfoss, the mightiest and most breathtaking of all Icelandic waterfalls.  Next on the docket is the Kerid volcanic crater, which dates back to an eruption that occurred over 3,000 years ago. Gaze down into the deep blue waters, surrounded by vibrant red rock. Your tour ends with a stop at another of Iceland’s most iconic sights, the Blue Lagoon. Luxuriate in the warm, geothermal waters, making use of an included silica mud mask. After taking in the stunning scenery and basking in the colorful water, you’ll head back to Reykjavik, having experienced some of Iceland's foremost natural beauty.

    This is wonderful and very enjoyable experience. Our tour guide Baldur is very good and knowledgeable. It's important to dress in layers and bring waterproof/windproof jacket that you can put on/off depending on the location and weather because the weather very much changeable. Blue lagoon experience is really great, service & the facility is amazing although we had a comfort ticket only. Iceland is very beautiful country and plenty of activities

    A brilliant day out. Our guide was Baldur, ex psychologist and a man of knowledge and tales. He made the day what it was with several scenic detours along the way. The stops we made were very beautiful with just the right amount of time at each stop - we saw the waterfalls, geysers, crater and finally the blue lagoon - well worth a visit and a great end to the day. As our hotel was outside of the pick-up zone the company even sent a driver to pick us up unlike other companies where you have to get a taxi to the pick-up points. The best tour of our trip. Highly recommended.

    This was an excellent, informative tour! We only had 3 days in Iceland and wanted an all-encompassing tour and this one fit the bill! A full-day tour (12 hours) included major sights along the Golden Circle and ended with a spectacular Blue Lagoon experience. Brian, our drive was excellent and courteous - giving us detailed history and explanations of everything we saw. Highly recommended!!
