Full description

See the best of southwest Iceland on an 8-hour Golden Circle tour by bus 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, before returning to your original starting point in Reykjavik.

The chaotic bus pick up situation in other reviews can’t be avoided as many tour bus companies pick up from the same area, be patient!! The chaos comes from tourists with poor listening skills when the passenger names and correct tour bus is announced. Perfect weather for this tour, with everything covered in snow from the storm the day previous. You could see for miles and then landscapes were breathtaking with Iceland’s blue light and winter sun. Siggi (tour guide) and Atti (bus driver) kept us entertained the whole way on the long drive between sites and made you feel like you had made some new Icelandic friends! Since the weather was so nice we were granted several extra stops, and our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the local areas and geology. Absolutely recommend this tour. From Christian and Mandy (aka girl who lies to avoid associating self with American tourists ;))

Really enjoyed this trip! Our guide Goodnee was very informative and helpful. We also had an extra stop to see some Icelandic horses which was a bonus. The weather wasn’t great so we couldn’t enjoy some of the view points as visibility was poor. I know the weather can’t be helped so the only reason this trip isn’t getting 5* is because of time. It felt like some of the view points were rushed. Anyone elderly or struggling with mobility would have found it difficult to get round each view point in time to make it back to the bus.
