After being picked up from your central Reykjavik hotel, meet your guide and small group of no more than 15 people, and head north to explore the popular Golden Circle sightseeing route.

Kick off your adventure with an attraction often left off Golden Circle tour itineraries – the magnificent Kerid Crater Lake. Gaze out over the dramatic volcanic crater, which measures an impressive 886-foot (270-meters) wide and 180-foot (55-meters) deep, and marvel at the glittering crater lake at its heart.

After taking plenty of photos, jump back in the bus and continue to the Thingvellir National park, where you’ll get the rare opportunity to walk right on the meeting point of the American and Eurasian tectonic plates. Learn about the shifting of the plates and their influence on Iceland’s volatile volcanic landscapes from your guide as you admire the views, then hear more about Iceland’s history as you visit the site of the world’s first parliament.

After a break for lunch (own expense), the photo-worthy landscapes continue, as you stop by the Geysir geothermal area to see geysers including Strokkur and Geysir, the geyser after which all others are named. Stick around long enough to watch the Strokkur geyser erupt (around every 10 minutes), spurting a column of water up to 98 foot (30 meters) in the air.

Make a final stop at the mighty Gullfoss waterfall, one of Iceland’s most visited sights, before returning to Reykjavik, where your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.

Nice Travel, not Knowledgeable Travel

We took the Golden Circle tour and were very disappointed. Our tour guide, Pablo, was "nice", but nothing more than a driver. The only information he provided at each site was to point at it and say “here it is, be back to the bus...More
