Highlights
11-hour Golden Circle, Kerid crafter, and Blue Lagoon tour from Reykjavik 
A guide offers history and geology facts you wouldn’t learn on your own
Small-group tour of 19 or fewer people guarantees a memorable experience
Hassle-free round-trip transportation from your Reykjavik hotel or accommodation
What to expect
Begin your tour with pickup from your hotel or accommodation in the Reykjavik area. Meet your guide and small group and hop on your climate-controlled vehicle. Set out toward the Golden Circle, hearing about Icelandic history, geology, and culture from your guide en route. Head to Thingvellir National Park, where you learn about how it lies within a volcanically active area. It's also home to the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, where the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates meet. Straddle two continents while you walk between the plates. Hop back on the bus for the journey to the lake-filled, 3,000-year-old Kerid crater. Stop to marvel at its magical-looking lake and colorful slopes. Next, visit the surreal Geysir geothermal area on foot, stopping at bubbling ponds, steam vents, and Geysir and Strokkur geysers. The next destinations are Gullfoss waterfall and the iconic Blue Lagoon. Choose to head inside the lagoon spa (own expense) if you’ve pre-booked admission. Enjoy a soak in the steamy waters while admiring surrounding lava fields. After roughly two hours at the lagoon, relax during the journey back to Reykjavik, and finish with a drop-off at your hotel.

A great day trip from Reykjavik
Aug 2021
This tour was very informative and entertaining, both for the things we saw and the facts and stories that Reynir told us during the trip. The stops were well-timed and we saw everything at leisure. Saw some breath-taking waterfalls, a geysir, and also learned about baking bread inside lava. Definitely would recommend this tour!

Interesting for the whole family
Jul 2021
This was an excellent way to see a lot of different highlights of Iceland in a day, since we had a short time frame. We were lucky enough to have clear (but still cold) weather which made the waterfalls sparkle and the Blue Lagoon look even more magical. The Blue Lagoon was truly incredible and a must-do experience, even though you need to pay extra. Follow their instructions and book it in advance - when we got there, many people were trying to get in but it was fully booked. Our group just sailed through, the facilities are very nice. It was great to do the Blue Lagoon last, as it really was the highlight, and made you all relaxed for the drive back, but the other parts of the tour were really interesting too.

Great trip

Fantastic trip. Magnus Gunnison was a great tour guide. He was informative, humorous, shared interesting stories, Icelandic music, history, geological facts, agricultural facts etc. he made our trip and was super considerate of his passengers needs. He is a gem and no he didn’t pay me to say that. 👍😊

Nice Tour, but go on your own.
Aug 2021
The Golden Circle is one of those must-see trips from Reykjavik, and Nicetravel ehf did a good job. Thingvellir National Park and the crater were a little underwhelming, Gullfoss and the Geysir were great. There are some unplanned stops like petting and feeding horses, so if they keep this up, bring a few hundred ISK to buy horse candy. Buy a premium upgrade to the Blue Lagoon separately, but do it early because they sell out.

If I had to do it over again, I would have rented a car from Reykjavik and gone in on my own, it's an easy day trip and you can decide how much time to spend at the Lagoon on your own.
