Our day tour to the Golden Circle begins with our fast and efficient pick up service. You simply need to wait at your hotel or at one of the designated pick up points and let us take care of the rest. Once we have all our guests we will set off from the city and journey to our first major destination.
Kerið volcanic crater will be the first stop we make. Kerið is one of many crater lakes located in this area. It became a popular destination due to it's vivid red lava rock that contrast with the aquamarine waters created by the mineral composition in the surrounding soil.
Our next stop is at Gullfoss waterfall. Gullfoss, translated as the Golden waterfall, is a large waterfall that drops a stunning 32m over two stages. It is fed from the white river which originates from Iceland’s 2nd biggest glacier. The area is intertwined with a mixture of history and myth surrounding plans to build a hydroelectric dam that ultimately fell through due to the efforts of one girl and her protests to preserve the nature.
After the waterfall we will make our way to the Geysir Geothermal area. The area gets its name from a specific hotspring known as the “Great Geysir” a large geyser in the area that that gave us the English word ‘Geyser’. Geysir itself is no longer able to erupt without assistance, but luckily there is still activity here to be seen and Geysirs sister hot spring Strokkur still erupts frequently. There is also a large visitors centre here and a great spot for you to buy some lunch.
The last stop on our tour is Þingvellir (Thingvellir) National Park. This is the site where the world's first parliament was formed when the old Viking group leaders decided to join together on a yearly basis to discuss the events and laws of the land. This area is also notable as being the location where the Eurasian and American tectonic plates are separating from each other creating the Silfra fissure, a popular diving spot.
End the day at the famous Blue Lagoon (admission ticket not included, requires pre-booking personally), where you'll enjoy bathing in the relaxing geothermal waters. After approximately 2 hours we will depart from the Blue Lagoon and finish the day off with drop off in Reykjavik.
