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.

Really can't say enough good things about this tour! So well organized, seen the most beautiful sights. We got more than enough time at each sight. But without question our guide Jouna was the star of the show. We learned so much from her extensive knowledge of Iceland. Her humour and wit all added to the day also!

What in incredible day this was. If you're looking to do the golden circle tour would 100% recommend the 2 additional parts with the crater and the lagoon tour. you see so much throughout the day and have a good level of relaxation time. Our guide was amazing, she mentioned at the start that she was recovering from illness so had a sore throat still so massive hats off to her for talking through the tour which i can imagine was hard. she had loads of information to give us and knowledge to share and it was just an incredible day.
