Full description
See the best of southwest Iceland on an 8-hour Golden Circle tour 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.

    Highly recommend doing a tour in Iceland if you're only there for a few days. We did this tour of the Golden Circle and loved it! Our guide HBO was super knowledgable and really made the trip as enjoyable as it was. The sites you see on this tour are amazing, we loved Gullfoss waterfall in particular. Make sure you pack waterproof clothing as the weather conditions can be harsh.

    Amazing experience and such a friendly tour guide! The overall tour was on time, makes plenty of stops for food and bathroom breaks, and allows for enough time at each spot to marvel at the scenic attractions, take pictures and walk around a bit. The tour guide was also exceptionally informative about Iceland’s history and landscapes, while adding humor to make the entire experience enjoyable!

    The bus was a bit crowded but we managed to get the front seats, which offered an excellent view. The guide Anna was quite knowledgeable about all the sites and even offered us information about self trips around town. Definitely good value for money if you want a lot in a short time.
