Visit some of the best known historical sites and natural phenomena in Iceland on the Golden Circle tour. and experience one of Mother Nature’s greatest showstoppers – the magical phenomenon known as the Northern Lights.

Golden Circle Tour:

Visit the geothermal area around the incredible spouting hot springs of Geysir and Strokkur on the Golden Circle tour. The Great Geysir gives its name to all the hot springs in the world. Though Geysir is hardly active anymore, the very impressive, Strokkur erupts every 4-8 minutes and shoots a column of water up to 40 metres up in the air.

Continue to the picturesque waterfall Gullfoss ('Golden Waterfall'), located in the canyon of Olfusa river. Explore the waterfalls edge, experience the the forces and beauty of untouched nature and feel the mist of the glacial water on your face. The waterfall gives the illusion of falling straight into an abyss, but in reality, it falls into a crevice which is 32 metres deep.

Proceed to the Þingvellir National Park, a place of fascinating geology and picturesque landscapes. The Mid - Atlantic Ridge – the boundary between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates is clearly visible here. Gaze with awe at the line where Iceland is slowly being pulled apart as North America veers west and Eurasia moves east. Þingvellir is also a site of great historic interest, its plains playing host to the Icelandic parliament Alþingi, founded in the year 930 AD.

You will arrive back in Reykjavík around 18:30. You will have a few hours to spend before you join our Northern Lights tour.

    The only reason for 4 stars, is because the Northern Lights haven't yet happened, due to unfortunate weather! The rest has been absolutely awesome!
