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.

      A full day with full commentary throughout - informative and factual for the most part. There was an early stop for coffee, pastries, ice cream, etc. and other opportunities to buy food during the day. All the sights we visited - including the crater - were spectacular. I'm not someone who can just look at an awesome sight and just snap a few Instagram shots. I need to take it in for a little while and take photos afterwards, so it felt a little rushed sometimes but for most people not like me, it was probably fine.

      This tour hits several “must see” highlights in Iceland. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of this bus tour. The sights seem are amazing on their own and really capture the beauty of Iceland. Our guide Simon was phenomenal and it never felt like we were herded from place to place. His knowledge of the area was immense and his love of his country came through at each of the sites! Highly recommend even if you are not typically a tour person.

      Simon, our guide and driver were very friendly and kind. He had lots of knowledge about everything regarding the tour. The weather was terrible so he kept the bus warm and allowed hot drinks on the bus. He also was kind enough to drive us all the way to our door step due to the heavy rain. Thank you Simon!!! We enjoyed touring with you.
