Full description
Take yourself on the Golden Circle Classic, a full-day tour that brings you close to some of Iceland's most beautiful natural sites. This popular excursion introduces you to some of the best known historical sites and natural phenomena in Iceland, all with the commentary of a knowledgeable guide. Begin with a visit to Þingvellir National Park, where the Icelandic parliament Alþingi was founded in the year 930 AD. Þingvellir is geologically remarkable and the tectonic plate boundaries form a breathtaking scenery. Then head to the beautiful waterfall Gullfoss and walk toward the edge to feel the mist of the glacial water on your face. From there, journey toward the geothermal area around the incredible spouting hot springs of Geysir and Strokkur, before traveling back to Reykjavik.

Great experience! I missed the initial bus and with a quick email, they turned around and stopped for me. Great pacing of the tour and amazing sights. Straight forward guide and very informational I recommend going on this tour if you’ve never been to Iceland, the spots we visited were amazing

Good tour with Gray Line Iceland! All the information was provided by email in advance and the arranged pick up on time. Our guide was really friendly and gave as a lot of information about the tour and the Icelandic life in general. Thingvellir national park was impressive, same as Gullfoss waterfall. Perfect sunny day!

The tour was good, my only criticism was that there was not enough tine at each stop On a good day it would be difficult to see everything and have time for a drink, a sandwich or a visit to the loo When it us snowing hard and in 45 mph winds
