Tour Description

On the day of your scheduled tour, we will pick you up from your chosen bus stop or hotel in Reykjavík and embark on an unforgettable adventure through Iceland's most famous route – the Golden Circle.

Thingvellir National Park

One of the most remarkable natural wonders in the world is located at Thingvellir National Park, where visitors can witness the results of two drifting tectonic plates: the  North American and Eurasian one; few places in the world offer a better and clearer view of this massive geographic activity. The national park is also home to Iceland's largest natural lake, and hosts a great variety of fish and bird life, reason why it is often referred to as “The Galapagos of the North”! Thingvellir is steeped in Icelandic national history, serving as the site where the parliament was first established in 930 AD. “Thingvellir” translates to “Parliament Plains”. This makes the park an essential destination for those interested in Icelandic culture and history.

Bruarfoss Waterfall- Included from April 1st

This waterfall is truly a hidden gem located into Iceland's secret breathtaking landscapes, often referred to as "Iceland’s Bluest Waterfall".

Compared to other waterfalls, its size can appear quite small and its cascading waters through lava rocks create a scene of unique serenity into your soul!

Its silky waters create a surreal landscape picture, and its sapphire blue colours generate a unique contrast with the dark of the lava rocks they slide through, and the bright green of the moss surrounding the area. It's a picturesque location perfect for nature lovers and photographers seeking for deeper insight into the Icelandic untouched nature.

Geyser Geothermal Area

The Geysir geothermal area hosts many powerful hot springs. Among them is Strokkur, a geyser that shoots up to 35 meters every 5-10 minutes. The word Geysir, which nowadays describes an erupting hot spring, comes from "Geysir," the oldest erupting hot spring, dormant now,  that inspired the name for all the other geysers in the world.

Gullfoss Waterfall

Our last stop before the adventure comes to an end, is towards one of Iceland’s most majestic waterfalls: The Golden Waterfall! 

The melting water of Langjökull, Iceland's second-largest glacier, cascades into a deep canyon to create the awe-inspiring "Golden Falls." On clear days, you can even catch a glimpse of Langjökull in the distance, with the mist from the waterfall creating a beautiful rainbow effect. This is an ideal spot for a breathtaking photo opportunity!

Kerid Volcano Crater- Included from April 1st

Kerid is a volcanic crater known for its vibrant contrast of colours.
The approximately 6.500-year-old volcanic crater in South Iceland is undoubtedly the perfect Golden Circle detour.

Imagine yourself standing above a volcanic crater with unique red volcanic rocks going down a slope measuring 270 meters in circumference, 170 meters wide and 55 meters deep...
With most of its caldera still intact, this shallow lake has an easy hike around the rim of the crater to enable visitors to get a closer view.
The aquamarine shade of blue water is a result of the minerals from the surrounding soil. Apart from the walls of red volcanic rocks, the lake is surrounded by vibrant green moss.

Kerid is part of the Western Volcanic Zone that includes the Reykjanes peninsula and the Langjökull Glacier, making it one of the three most recognisable volcanic craters in Iceland.

Back To Reykjavík

Our return to the Reykjavik capital area is planned for approximately 5 pm; however, the schedule order and return time may be subject to changes based on weather and road conditions.
