Why you should book a Golden Circle tour in Iceland

The Golden Circle is the ideal introduction to Iceland’s spectacular natural wonders. Easily reached with a short scenic drive from Reykjavík, you’ll soon see the glittering jewels in Iceland’s crown, with one “must-see” destination after another.

Þingvellir National Park, the Geysir geothermal area, and the Gullfoss waterfall are all world-famous attractions, and the Golden Circle route takes you to each of these natural wonders in turn.

As well as that, our tour adds another special treat, with a visit to Kerið, a stunning volcanic crater.

If your time in Iceland is short, there’s no better tour for you to take, seeing some of her greatest treasures without a long drive to get there!

What can you expect to see on a Golden Circle tour in Iceland?

ÞINGVELLIR
NATIONAL PARK

A place of outstanding natural beauty, Þingvellir National Park is Iceland’s most historical location.

The Alþingi, the longest-standing parliament in the world, met here for a thousand years. Iceland declared its independence from Denmark here in 1944.
The early Viking settlers held summer festivals, traveling from all over the country here!

Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, you can walk between the huge fissures in the American and Eurasian tectonic plates and learn how Iceland is ripping apart down the Mid-Atlantic Ridge at the same speed your fingernails grow!

HAUKADALUR
GEOTHERMAL
AREA

The next stop on your Golden Circle adventure is the Haukadalur Geothermal Area, where you’ll be thrilled by the sight of superheated fountains of water and vapor shooting high into the sky every few minutes.

Geysir is the Icelandic translation of “to gush”, and this is the place that gives its name to all erupting hot springs worldwide.

It’s right next to the road, so it’s an easy walk between steaming hot pools and multicolored mineral streams.
Stand back and wait for a fantastic display as the explosion of water fills your view, a treat for all the senses and your Instagram!

GULLFOSS
GOLDEN FALLS

Just a short distance from Geysir is the tremendous third treat – the thundering waterfall at Gullfoss!

The name means “Golden Falls” in Icelandic, and you’ll be thrilled to see the sight of a roaring double-drop cascade tumbling more than thirty meters down into a deep canyon.

Fed by Langjökull, one of Iceland’s gigantic glaciers, millions of gallons of meltwater set off sheets of spray in the air. You might be lucky to see rainbows here on sunny days!

There are viewing platforms in several places, so get your camera ready!

KERIÐ
VOLCANIC
CRATER

Before we return to the city, there’s one more special sight for you to see! Iceland is one of the most volcanically active countries in the world, so we’ll show you one of the craters left behind after an eruption!

Kerið erupted over three thousand years ago, leaving a bright blue lake in its crater.
The volcano is now also beautifully streaked with red earth and deep blankets of velvety green moss, making it one of the most colorful craters you can see in Iceland.

Fifty meters deep and more than 250 meters wide, you can walk around the crater to see it from as many angles as you like!

Things to remember when you book a Golden Circle tour in Iceland

The Golden Circle tour covers a 250-kilometer circuit from the city with four stops along the way.

We’ll pick you up in our comfortable coaches, and our expert guides will thrill you with fascinating facts about the Golden Circle, including Iceland’s Viking history. But remember that the Icelandic weather is famously unpredictable, so make sure that you dress in warm clothing and wear good shoes for the short walks at each location.

It’s best to prepare for all weather, so you can really enjoy your day! There are restrooms, restaurants, and cafes at three stops.

Take this chance to discover the world-famous Golden Circle!

Of all the tours you can take in Iceland, the Golden Circle is the simplest, quickest, and easiest way to see the best of Iceland’s natural splendor in one day.

It’s a short drive from the capital city. After we collect you from your accommodation, you’ll arrive at Þingvellir National Park just an hour later!

And the tour is a circuit, so you’ll enjoy new views every minute of your Golden Circle adventure! It’s the most popular tour in Iceland – come and find out why!

While Geysir has fallen silent recently, nearby Strokkur erupts in steam explosions and spray every few minutes, sending superheated water flying high into the sky. Geysir means “gush” in Icelandic, and that’s where the name comes from! If you book a package with stay in Hveragerði you can also admire smaller cousin of Strokkur that erupts every 15-20 minutes.

SÓLHEIMAJÖKULL

Sólheimajökull is a magnificent glacier located on the South Coast of Iceland. It is an outlet glacier that descends from the larger Mýrdalsjökull ice cap. Sólheimajökull is famous for its breathtaking ice formations, including deep crevasses, ice caves, and dramatic ice ridges. 

The glacial environment of Sólheimajökull provides a unique opportunity to witness the effects of climate change, as the glacier has been receding in recent years. This caused new Glacial Lagoon to appear on the map of Iceland, where huge chunks of ice slowly float on its surface.
