Pickup included
Pickup begins 30 minutes prior to the tour start time. Please be ready and on the lookout for a green Smartbus. As each driver usually has a few stops to make, it can take up to 30 minutes to finish the pickup service; there is no need to worry if the bus is not there exactly on time. Pickup is available from most hotels, hostels, and guesthouses. In the city center, some areas are restricted to buses, and therefore buses can only stop at nearby bus stops. If you need directions to your nearest bus stop, please visit this website: www.busstop.is. Pickup is not available from Airbnbs or private residences; for these cases, it is recommended you select the nearest hotel address or bus stop and request pickup from there.

Full description

Tour the Golden Circle to discover Iceland’s most iconic sites. Also, enjoy a relaxing dip in the Blue Lagoon. Travel in a bus with Wi-Fi-connected tablets providing a stream of information via a GPS synced audio guide. Take plenty of time at the major stops to marvel at nature and take pictures. Depart from Reykjavik and drive to visit the Thingvellir Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage site home to the largest freshwater lake in Iceland. Continue to the Geysir park, filled with steaming geothermal springs.

Admire Strokkur Geyser as it erupts to heights of 35 meters (115 feet). Then see the magnificent Gullfoss Waterfall, where the glacial meltwater falls 32 meters (105 feet) down into a canyon. Drive back to the capital and take a break in Reykjavik, before heading back on the road for a ride to the Blue Lagoon. Once there, have time to soak in the mineral-rich waters, relax after your day of sightseeing, and reflect on the natural beauty of this island.

So beautiful and peaceful. Went in the evening 6:30-8:30 no crowds. Disregard all the naysayers worth every penny so large plenty of room to wander through the connecting areas, even a swim up bar and another area had facial mud masks. Don't miss the waterfall to get the last kinks out of your shoulders.

Our tour guide was very kind and informative. The tablets were a great tool to listen as we drove along and the tour guide filled in with extra details as we drove. We even got to have a surprise stop to visit Icelandic horses because we were ahead of schedule! The blue lagoon was fabulous and a great way to end the day.

Great day out. In hindsight I would have preferred to have done the Blue Lagoon on a separate tour as we felt pretty tired after being out on the rest of the tour for 7 hours. We then had an hour’s wait back in Reykjavík until our coach departed for the lagoon.
