Spontaneously erupting hot springs at Geysir, the Gullfoss Waterfall, Thingvellir National Park... Discover the incredible natural landscapes of Iceland on this complete tour of the famous Golden Circle.
Golden Circle Tour Itinerary
On the day of your tour, meet your guide at the central meeting point in Rekyjavik, ready to begin your tour of the Golden Circle, a region of southern Iceland famous for its numerous spectacular natural sights.
You'll head east in the direction of Geysir. As the name suggests, this area is home to extensive geothermal activity and a number of geysers. Amongst steaming hot springs, you'll discover Strokkur, one of the most famous geysers in Iceland, which launches a 15 to 20 metre-tall (49 to 66 foot) column of boiling water into the air every 10 minutes... don't get too close!
Continue on your route around the Golden Circle to Gullfoss Waterfall, a large cascade that plunges to a depth of more than 30 metres (over 100 feet). Strolling alongside the waterfall, you'll feel the cool breeze rising off the water as you admire one of Iceland's most stunning scenes. After exploring Gullfoss, you'll take a break for lunch (not included).
With recharged batteries, you'll head to your next stop, Thingvellir National Park, which has been designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. As well as being an incredible natural space, Thingvellir was the location of Icelandic parliament between 930 and 1798. You'll see Thingvallavatn, the largest natural lake in Iceland, at the location where the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates join.
After enjoying free time to discover this impressive volcanic landscape at your own pace, you'll make the return journey to Reykjavik.
Please note, on Mondays and Thursdays at 10:30 am, this tour is carried out with a Spanish-speaking guide. The rest of the days and times have an English-speaking guide.
On occasion, the lunch break may take place near Geysir instead of at Gullfoss Waterfall.
When making your reservation you'll see a list including the majority of the hotels in Reykjavik. Next to the name of your hotel, you will find the nearest meet point. As the majority of the streets in the centre are not accessible by bus, you will need to make your way to a nearby location, indicated as a "bus stop" and with a number.
The bus is adapted for foldable wheelchairs, however please bear in mind that this excursion visits natural sites which are not always accessible to people with reduced mobility.
