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.

Tour with breathtaking landscapes to say the least. Too bad only for the rain at the point where you could see the geysers, but otherwise it's really worth it!!! Driver ( Piotr) and especially the guide ( Emily) very nice and helpful. If I have to find a flaw, perhaps the stops are a little too fast, but otherwise nothing to say

the sites visited are magnificent. we took the tour bus. no interaction with the guide and the driver except to give us the departure times at each site. the driver spoke just to tell us not to be late and to leave the bus clean because it was the northern lights at night so he didn't have time to clean his bus. we found that the times were badly distributed because staying 01:30 in Geysir while on this site there is almost nothing to see, it's a shame. if we had to do it again we would surely do it by mini bus or super jeep.

Super recommended tour, it was a beautiful sunny day that allowed us to enjoy those magnificent landscapes and not suffer from the cold. The stop to pet and feed the Icelandic horses was much appreciated. Well organized with stops at various points of interest, which lasted just enough time to enjoy the landscapes and take some photos. Given the beautiful day, I would have extended the one to the pingvellir national park a little more, which deserves a lot. In general beautiful experience.
