Golden Circle Classic Day Tour from Reykjavik

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Following a morning meetup at Reykjavik Terminal or pickup at your hotel (depending on the option you selected), board the climate-controlled coach and embark on the Golden Circle tour of Iceland's most remarkable natural landmarks. Along the way, learn about the history, ecology, and geology of the area through the onboard audio guide, available in 10 languages. 

    In Thingvellir National Park (Þingvellir), see the fields of verdant moss and the gash in the earth where the Eurasian and American tectonic plates are pulling apart. Learn about this UNESCO World Heritage Site, home to the world's oldest existing parliament, founded by the Vikings.

    Stop at the Geysir geothermal area, home to the Strokkur geyser, which erupts with a 98-foot (30-meter) column of boiling water every 4 to 8 minutes. Continue to Gullfoss, one of Iceland's most impressive waterfalls, where the Hvítá River cascades over three precipices into a 105-foot (32-meter) crevasse. 

    Conclude the tour at your original departure point.
