What to expect

Golden Circle and Blue Lagoon Tour allows you to witness the wonders of continental drift at Thingvellir National Park, feel the raw power of nature unleashed at Geysir and the Gullfoss waterfall, marvel at the red earth Kerid volcano crater and bathe in the iconic waters of the Blue Lagoon, with all admission costs included in the package.

Thingvellir National Park

The day begins with a scenic drive out of Reykjavik, heading towards the majestic Mount Esja and into Iceland’s heartland – Thingvellir National Park, a natural spectacle without parallel. Here, the American and Eurasian tectonic plates are tearing apart, little by little each year, giving you the unmatched opportunity to have your feet standing on two continents at the same time.

Geologically enthralling, Thingvellir is also significant in the cultural and historical life of Iceland, as it was the site of the oldest surviving Parliament in the world, established by the Vikings in 930AD. Laws were passed, disputes were settled, festivals were held, and the Icelandic nation was ruled from here for nearly a thousand years. Iceland declared its independence from Denmark here in 1944. It is now listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, thanks to its rich cultural history and the stunning natural environment that lies all around.

Geysir & Haukadalur Geothermal Area

After enjoying the experience of Thingvellir, you will travel onwards to the world-famous hot spring, Geysir. On our way there, we will pass through the small village of Laugarvatn, which sits next to a beautiful lake of the same name in a geothermally active area called Haukadalur. The plumes of super-heated vapor billowing into the air in this area are used by the locals to bake rye bread in the ground!

Known throughout the world for its power and beauty, Geysir has become a synonym for this fantastic show of nature. Strokkur, another hot spring, sits nearby and is very active, reliably erupting to heights of up to 30 meters every few minutes. It’s possible to get quite close to Strokkur too, but it’s wise to check the wind direction first! Streams of super-heated water trickle all around, leaving intriguing colorful residues behind. While we are in the Geysir area, you will also have time to buy lunch or some snacks or shop for souvenirs at the adjacent service station.

Gullfoss - The Golden Waterfall

Gullfoss is a double drop waterfall with a cascade of more than 30 meters, producing endless sheets of spray as more than a million gallons a minute of water crash down into a narrow canyon. Gullfoss is a natural marvel at any time of the year. There are several viewing perspectives, depending on the time of your visit, which will give you the chance to fully experience the thundering power of this magical waterfall. Setting off countless rainbows on sunny days, and equally stunning when it’s partly frozen in the winter, it is now a protected site having nearly been converted into a hydroelectric power plant a few decades ago.

Kerid Volcanic Crater

These three amazing attractions complete the classic Golden Circle tour, but to add even more value and wonder to your experience, we will also stop at the dramatic red earth Kerid volcanic crater. Three thousand years old and more than 50 meters deep, a walk around this crater and lake with its colorful mix of mossy greens and red earth hues is a visual highlight for you and your camera. Bjork once played a concert here too. Our tour continues towards the Grindavik as we make our way to the Blue Lagoon, enjoying a beautiful drive through the rugged Reykjanes peninsula, admiring vast lava fields, cone volcanoes and stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean before we arrive in the town of Grindavik.

Blue Lagoon (admission included)

It is now time for you to get prepared for the most relaxing part of your day! You will spend the rest of your day relaxing in the iconic naturally-heated water and enjoying the fantastic facilities there in the world-famous Blue Lagoon. The Blue Lagoon is extremely popular and sold out on most dates, but as our tour includes all admission tickets, you can start looking forward to enjoying this unique spot as soon as you have completed your booking.

After spending two hours at the Blue Lagoon, it will be time to head back to Reykjavik’s bright lights, where you can reflect on a fantastic day and enjoy the rest of your night in the capital city.
