The Golden Circle is Iceland’s number 1 tour and a must do when in Reykjavik.

Itinerary

You will be picked up from your hotel/guesthouse at 0830h (08:30am) and taken on a guided coach tour of Reykjavik’s famed Golden Circle.

The tour will visit the following places:

Gullfoss waterfall: This is the queen of Iceland's waterfalls, tumbling down a deep gorge.

Geysir hot spring area: You can walk around the world-famous Geysir area, a geothermal field where hot springs are in abundance, geysers explode and pools of mud bubble.

The Geysir Museum: This is a main feature of this area, an informative multimedia exhibition that vividly shows how the forces of nature shaped the country and the people.

Þingvellir National Park: This is the place of the most historic events in Iceland and exceptional beauty. Þingvellir is the original site of the oldest existing parliament in the world, the Alþingi. The Great Atlantic rift is clearly visible, a rift which is slowly pulling Iceland apart along tectonic plates.

The tour returns to the starting point after approximately 8 hours.

Reviews

The tour was wonderful, my daughter in law had a wheelchair and there was no problems. Everything was assessable even though it was hard going pushing it up hills, but still... Mrs S A Palmer

This is a must see tour, we got to see everything we wanted around the Reykjavik area. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and the organisation was perfect.... Mr Barnaby J Upton
