Golden Circle Tour in Mini Bus

Experience Iceland’s Golden Circle on this full-day excursion from Reykjavik. This guided minibus tour visits many of the country’s most famous scenic destinations, including Gullross waterfall, Geysir hot spring, Thingvellir Valley, glacial rivers and the town of Hveragerdi. Hotel pickup and drop-off makes for a hassle-free day trip, and a small tour-group size means you’ll get plenty of personal attention. 

What to Expect
Pick up from your Reykjavik hotel or guesthouse happens at 9am (be ready by 8:30am). Your guided minibus tour of Iceland’s Golden Circle takes you to dramatic landscape, glacial rivers and Iceland’s three natural jewels: Geysir hot spring, Thingvellir National Park, and Gullfoss waterfall.

The first stop, Thingvellir National Park, offers an introduction to Icelandic history with a visit to the foundation site of the the Viking Parliament, the oldest existing parliament in the world. You’ll also witness Iceland’s unique geography at the rift between the European and American continents.

From Thingvellir Valley, the tour continues to Iceland’s crown, the scenic “Golden Waterfall” of Gullfoss and the Geysir hot spring. The nearby Strokkur geyser provides a fountain show for onlookers by blowing steam into the air several times an hour.

Your tour ends with drop-off at your departure point.

Loved the size of this tour; bus was small enough that we weren't waiting for and with throngs of people but large enough to defray the cost of a private tour (bus seats about 16). Our guide was a true local and shared tons of...More
