Tour Description

Itinerary

The guided tour starts with our fast and efficient pick-up service, where we will come to pick you up from either one of the hotels in the center of Reykjavik or one of the designated pick-up stops across the city. With everyone on board our comfortable minibus we will then depart from the capital, and begin our exciting road trip with an experienced, knowledgeable driver tour guide.

 

① Thingvellir National Park

About 45 minutes drive from Reykjavik you will find Thingvellir National Park, a location that holds both geological and cultural significance, which became a UNESCO heritage site in 2004.

Thingvellir is home to the exposed section of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, the divergent rift between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates, which means you will be standing in between two continents, right here, in Iceland. The Öxarárfoss waterfall cuts through the ridge with a beautiful drop from 13 meters (42.65 ft) high up, which you will visit as you walk down the path.

The world’s first parliament was established in Iceland, right here in Thingvellir, in 930 A.D. While you are at the viewpoint of Hakið, enjoy the breathtaking, panoramic view of the entire area. The Þingvellir Church was consecrated in 1859, with a simple, elegant appearance, which adds a historic, cultural atmosphere to the natural landscapes. The Almannagjá fissure is close by, with clear glacial water running down deep of the lava walls. The water originated from Iceland’s second-largest glacier, Langjökull, which has passed through the porous lava fields beneath.

Your driver guide will pick you up further along the Rift Valley.

 

② Geysir Geothermal Area

An active geothermal region, the Geysir area is an hour-drive away with many features to see. Steam vents, bubbling pits, warm ponds, with varied colors, and the greatest highlight of the area, the Strokkur geyser erupting every 5-10 minutes up to 20 meters (65.62 ft) high in the sky, a natural spectacle indeed. And the Great Geysir is a quiet, blue depth of water nearby. A visitor center is right next to the area with shops and several lunch options.

Safety is important, so a reminder to  visitors to only walk along the path,  as the steamy pits and sizzling water is boiling at extremely high temperatures underneath your feet.

 

③ Gullfoss Waterfall

The next highlight of the Golden Circle Route is the astonishing Gullfoss Waterfall, also known as the “Golden Waterfalls,” a magnificent, wide drop that first runs down 11 meters (36 ft), then 21 meters (68 ft), roaring to the depth of the canyon, with cliffs rising to 70 meters (230 ft). You will feel its forceful presence when you approach the waterfall and admire the stunning visuals and intriguing history. Gullfoss’s river is fed by the Hvítá river, or white river, originating from the Langjökull glacier.

 

④ Kerið Volcanic Crater Lake

The remarkable crater lake, Kerið, is yet another popular attraction on Iceland’s Golden Circle Route, famous for its greenish lake water and colorful crater appearances on the slopes. Kerid crater was formed around 3000 years ago during a volcanic eruption during which the volcanic chamber collapsed onto itself, after the burning magma depleted. Its shape is a perfect inverted cone, and a pathway was built for visitors to see the site. A bonus fun fact is that the Kerid crater has been a popular concert venue for many years!

 

⑤Blue Lagoon

After our visit to all the major points of interest in the Golden Circle of Iceland is complete, we head to the Blue Lagoon, or ‘Bláa Lónið’ in Icelandic. The wonder is famous for it’s milky blue water that’s rich in silica, algae, salt, and other minerals with great healing benefits to the skin such as preventing premature aging.

A fulfilling adventure to explore the beautifully designed surroundings, sometimes you can even see the Northern Lights in winter’s sky at the Blue Lagoon. Since the opening of the lagoon area in 1987, the Blue Lagoon’s therapeutic reputation has traveled the globe, attracting millions of visitors.

Your admission ticket is included in this full-day tour to Golden Circle and Blue Lagoon, all you need to do is to pack your swimsuit for the relaxing soak. After approximately 2 hours in the geothermal spa, we will head back to Reykjavik, which takes about 45 minutes to drive.
