Overview
The Golden Circle takes in some of Iceland’s most impressive natural attractions, but the full route can take a long time to complete. On this express tour, travel in comfort by air-conditioned coach and head straight to the top sights of interest with your guide. Explore the UNESCO-listed Thingvellir National Park, visit Gullfoss waterfall, and delve into the Haukadalur geothermal area. This tour includes pickup and drop-off in central Reykjavik.
What to Expect
Take a seat aboard your air-conditioned coach in central Reykjavik and then head out of the city into the UNESCO-listed Thingvellir National Park to begin your tour. Along the way, listen as your guide sheds light on the Icelandic national parliament—the oldest in the world, founded here in the year 930.

First, visit Gullfoss waterfall—where the powerful torrents of the Hvítá River have made their mark on the rugged landscape. Here, spend time exploring at your leisure and capture the impressive scenery on camera.

Next, head onward to the Haukadalur geothermal area—widely considered among Iceland’s top natural attractions. Watch the hot springs of Geysir and Strokkur shooting hot steam and water high into the air and gain insight into the region’s geothermal activity from your guide.

When your time in Haukadalur comes to an end, return in comfort to central Reykjavik to conclude your tour.
