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.

Pick up on time, quick swap over at the bus station and then set off. We chose the 9am slot which I recommend with the daylight hours as the sun was just rising at the first stop and just setting at the last. Everything on the trip was absolutely incredible and a must see, I’m in awe. Tour guide was knowledgeable and had so many interesting facts!

Amazing experience! The guide (a lady with blue hair - so sorry I’ve forgotten your name!) was absolutely amazing and gave such an insight into the places we visited and much more. She was so interesting and made the trip. Driver was also fab - felt very safe and comfortable.

We had an amazing time and experience. Weather was quite windy at the end, but it was fun nonetheless. We took 10.30am tour. I will recommend earlier trips, so you have more daylight. Our guide Sikki was Amazing and a great sense of humor. Driver Ate was very good as well. Highly recommend it. They also stop at more places weather permitted.
