Premium Small-Group Golden Circle Day Trip from Reykjavik
US$99.90
Overview

Enjoy a personalized experience of Iceland’s majestic Golden Circle on this small-group, 8-hour tour from Reykjavik. Alongside your guide, you’ll tick off top Iceland attractions including the Geysir Geyser, Gulfoss Waterfall, and Thingvellir National Park, where the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates collide. Plus, sample local delicacies at Efstidalur farm and gaze at the vivid blue waters of Kerid crater lake. Hotel pickup and drop-off in Reykjavik are included.  

What to Expect

Your tour begins at your Reykjavik hotel, where you’ll board a Wi-Fi equipped minibus between 9am and 9:30pm. Over the course of your tour, you’ll discover the highlights of the Golden Circle, a 185-mile (300-km) route home to spectacular natural landmarks.

The first stop is Thingvellir National Park, where the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates collide. Marvel at vast landscapes littered with rock formations and geysers before feasting your eyes on the Geysir Geyser, whose boiling mud pits and erupting geysers create an incredible sight.

Then, stop at Efstidalur farm to sample Icelandic delicacies and learn about traditional agricultural practices. See, too, the colossal Gulfoss Waterfall, whose powerful torrents of water plunge into a deep crevasse 105 feet (32 meters) below.

The final stop is Kerid, a crater lake filled with milky blue water that cascades down black and red rocks. Spend a while capturing photographs here before embarking your vehicle and arriving back in Reykjavik between 5pm and 6pm.

Worth the extra

The small size of the group gave a much more personalised tour. The farm stop was well worth doing for an insight into a working business. The stop at the horses was fun too as long as you're well wrapped up in March, when we...More
