Full description
Take an afternoon tour of Iceland’s legendary Golden Circle on an 8-hour day trip from Reykjavik. See the best of the southwest, including the spectacular Geysir area, Gullfoss waterfall, and Þingvellir National Park.

Following a pick-up from your designated pickup location in central Reykjavik, transfer 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 values in 2004. Pass through Icelandic farms on your drive around the Golden Circle.
