The Golden Circle tour is by far the most popular tour in Iceland and a must do if you haven´t done it before.

The first stop is Thingvellir National Park, a location very dear to Icelanders due to the contribution it’s given to our history. It’s also a tremendously important place, geologically speaking, since here it’s possible to see the tectonic plates of two continents, splitting apart. And then, we return to Reykjavik and drop you off at your hotel, hoping you’ve enjoyed private tour just like kids :). It is located around 45 min a long way from the capital city, and this is the essential stop on the Golden Circle Tour Iceland.

Next we visit the mighty Gullfoss Falls. Gullfoss (Golden Waterfall) is a famous waterfall in Iceland offering a marvellous perspective of the beauty and excellence of our nature. Gullfoss is a must-visit part of the Golden Circle Tour Iceland. It is situated in South Iceland on the Hvítá (White) waterway. When you will get near to this waterfall, you will probably feel extremely little. The proportion of water slipping through the stones is astounding! The best thing about this gorgeous fall is that you can see it is overflowing from the top and get a fascinating view. This spot is spectacular, it will definitely make a place in your heart forever.

Next will visit the Geyser Strokkur, which erupts every 5-10 minutes. Have you at any point seen hot spring water spouting out of the earth and rose to a few meters high in the sky? Don’t miss the chance of taking a look at this present nature’s excellent phenomenon in your Golden Circle Tour Iceland.

Then as for other stops we call them secret stops, dependent on the time that we got and the time you have spent on each location, we will never rush you.  Some times we visit the black sandy beach around a river delta.  Then often we go to see the famous Crater Kerið (a small entrance fee applies), then Waterfall Faxi.  Note that to visit Kerið or Faxi requires small visit fee from the land owners.

REVIEW: “Golden Circle - THE BEST!!!”

“Wow, I really can’t even begin to describe how amazing this tour is! Our guide, Guðmundur Yngvi Hraunfjörð, went above and beyond. We covered so much ground!! These tours are long, but the day really flies by. This also provides the best of both worlds if you’re conflicted about Golden Circle vs. Southern Coast […]”

REVIEW: “A true gem of a company”

[…] The combination of lovely guide, off-the-beaten path sites, and small tour size made Discover Iceland’s Spicy Golden Circle tour an excellent value for the money and a great way to spend my 1 full day in the country. […]
