The Golden Circle is Iceland’s number 1 tour and a must do when in Reykjavik.
You will be taken on a 300km round trip which showcases the power and beauty of Iceland’s natural environment. You will visit an active Geysir, experience the ferocity of the Gulfoss waterfall and visit Þingvellir National Park which is steeped in both history and beauty.
This version of the Golden Circle tour includes entrance to the Geysir Museum. This unique, interactive museum aims to provide visitors with an insight into nature’s most dramatic and intriguing phenomena.
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.
