  • Relax in an air-conditioned coach on this Golden Circle tour
  • Head directly to top attractions including Gullfoss waterfall with a guide
  • Panoramic views over the rugged Icelandic countryside scenery
  • Hassle-free round-trip transport from 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. Fees at all national parks are included in the cost of this tour. When your time in Haukadalur comes to an end, return in comfort to central Reykjavik to conclude your tour.

The tour was incredible with amazing views and history. The tour guide was really good and friendly. The only suggestion is to add a guided part during the Parliament Filds were the tour guide explain and show were the Parliament was as it is difficult to see it.

Every step of the way was more amazing then the last. The waterfall is amazing and the National Park is so different than what we have in the states. Went with my adult daughter she said it was the best tour of her life. She loved the blue lagoon
