The Golden Circle, Blue Lagoon & Kerið Volcanic Crater
Join this tour to discover the pure power of mother Earth as you explore the area where the American and Eurasian tectonic plates comes together, where you discover the giant waterfall which is the most important for all Icelanders, enjoy the geothermal areas and in the end of the day soak into the Blue Lagoon!
This is the most popular day tour in Iceland. Geysers, The Golden waterfall, Thingvellir and the Blue lagoon is a classic. We want to add something unique to your experience and that’s why we will also visit the big volcanic crater called Kerid. The crater is 270 m wide and more than 55 m deep. There is a lake in the bottom of the crater which gives it a little bit of magic. The lake is almost 14 m deep.
Thingvellir National park is the National shire of all Icelanders. It lies within the belt of volcanic activity and fissures which pass across Iceland, a part of the mid-Atlantic ridge, the junction of the american and Eurasian tectonic plates. It is a nice feeling to stand with your right foot in Europe and the left one in America.
Geysir – the biggest geysers of Haukadalur are Strokkur and Geysir itself, which gives the others their name. Strokkur erups every 5 to 10 minutes, throwing a column of water into the air to a height of 20 to 30 meters.
Gullfoss is one of the most amazing waterfalls in Iceland.
In the end of the day we take you to the Blue lagoon for a a relaxing time in the baths.
Please note that the entrance ticket to the Blue Lagoon is not included and please book the ticket in good advance. We will be arriving in the lagoon at 5 pm so please reserve your ticket at that time. After about 2 hours in the lagoon, we will drive you back to your hotel in Reykjavík.

An excellent tour. Our guide, David was knowledgeable, informative, amusing and allowed plenty of time at each site. We even got to see an extra waterfall and had time to feed some horses. We saw some stunning scenery and were able to make the most of the limited hours of daylight. To end it with the Blue Lagoon Experience made for a magical day out. I would recommend this tour highly.
Wonderful. Stefano, our guide, was knowledgeable and personable as well. The tour was a long day. But it was made enjoyable by our engaging guide, Stefano. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wanted to experience the magic that is Iceland.
I would highly recommend this tour. It was a full day tour that involved travelling in a very comfortable minibus while visiting some of the most beautiful sights of Iceland. The tour guide was very knowledgable and allowed us our own time at each destination. The Golden Circle part of the tour and The Blue Lagoon were equally amazing .While it is a long day, it is completely worth it and it was one of our most favourite parts of our trip!
First class from the moment Roman the driver and guide for the day picked us up. He was very knowledgable on all the interesting sites we visited but also had a vast wealth of knowledge in relation to Iceland’s history which we found very interesting indeed. The Blue Lagoon experience was the perfect relaxing ending to a very memorable day. I would recommend Nicetravel tour company without doubt.
Very well organized in general. We had a very nice and handsome guide, Ross, and he was patient and kind with us - even helping find a pharmacy for a guest who sprained his wrist. The sites were amazing but I wish we had a bit more time at the Allthing - it was cold and everyone wanted hot chocolate and the lines at the gift shop were long so it took a lot longer than we wanted and I felt rushed since I couldn't see it all. A bit more discussion from the driver ahead of time would have helped but it was really our fault for not timing it well. Being able to purchase the Blue Lagoon tickets from the tour driver was also great (as they were sold out for the time we wanted). I only had one complaint, while waiting at the bus stop to be picked up (30 minutes in the cold! with no shelter!) three different NICE buses pulled up but the first two were not for our tour. It would be useful if you could tell the guests either the license plate number for the bus for our tour or more identifying info because it was super disappointing to think you were getting out of the cold because your bus has arrived and it isn't the one for you.
The tour was excellent! The tour guide was prompt and informative! The sites itself were breath taking and had enough time to enjoy each site! The blue lagoon at the end was perfect to unwind and relax after a busy day of sightseeing. I would recommend this tour! To top it all off David showed us his favourite restaurant by the harbour and we enjoyed a delicious cod diner that same evening!
Excellent tour with a very knowledgeable tour guide. We saw amazing sites, and he gave us all the history and information we needed. We even had enough time to stop and pet some horses. Would highly recommend!
Excellent tour with a very nice tour guide. (Too bad it was raining all day.) Loved the scenery and the views. The Blue Lagoon is the perfect ending to a nice day.
I would highly recommend this tour! Our tour guide even took us to an extra waterfall and tried to let us see some Icelandic horses near Kerid.
Superb!!!! Excellent customer service! We missed the bus and they sent a guide to pick us up. We could not have had a better time. Our tour guide, Peter, was phenomenal, a retired merchant ship captain knew everything there was to know about beautiful Iceland and it's many virtues. He was funny, knowledgeable, personable, and took care to make sure that we had a lot of fun. Highly recommend this tour. We will be back for a longer time next time and will definitely take another of your tours!!!!
