Itinerary

  • The tour begins from your Reykjavík accommodation and the ride towards The Golden Circle begins with an expert English speaking guide.

    The first stop is the Pingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Apart fromoffering a fantastic view, it is also the site of Iceland's first parliament. Pingvellir is where the Eurasian and North America tectonic plates slowly separate, forming huge rocky rifts in the ground creating an impressively broad valley. Learn as the guide indulges you in local folklore, geographical and historical significance of these formations.

    The next stop is the infamous Geyser where geothermal hot springs make for dramatic eruptions. The spouting Strokkur erupts high into the sky about every 10 minutes and is a spectacular sight. Take this opportunity to walk alongside natural hot springs and be sure to stay within the restricted safe area!

    You will also be visiting the beautiful Faxi waterfall in located in the Golden Circle area.

    The Golden Circle wraps up at the Gullfoss waterfall site where you can feel the mist of glacial water on your face at Iceland's largest waterfall. The waterfall plunges into an enormously deep ravine creating a breathtaking site as the rivers worth of water spills into the abyss every second.

    After the drive around the Golden Circle, unwind in the natural hot pool called Secret Lagoon. This blue lagoon presents a perfect opportunity to be one with nature in this outstanding pool, surrounded by a magical landscape.

    Enjoy a soothing dip even when it’s freezing outside. The picturesque surroundings and the steam rising in the air gives the Secret Lagoon a surreal feel. There are several geothermal spots nearby and a little Geysir which erupts every 5 minutes. During the winter season, the Northern Lights often give a great light show above. Enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime experience of relaxing in the warm water and watching a lightshow above!

    Post a nice hot bath, head back to Reykjavik over the Hellisheiði Pass where the tour comes to a close.
