See all the highlights of the famous Golden Circle route with a more personal touch.

See Iceland’s three most famous attractions that make up the popular Golden Circle on our Golden Circle tour – Thingvellir national park, Gullfoss waterfall and Geysir hot spring area in a small group setting with some added flare. This is the perfect way to spend a day in Iceland as you will be exploring some of the most beautiful sites the country has to offer. We will also stop at some more “off the beaten track” spots, for example, the Hellisheiðarvirkjun Power Plant, Efsti-dalur farm, the stunning Faxi waterfall and the crater Kerið and we’ll even stop and say hi to some horses on the way!

On your journey, be amazed by gushing geysers, powerful waterfalls, and historical sites. Visit a World UNESCO Heritage site where the tectonic plates meet and explore the best Iceland has to offer.

From Reykjavik you will drive towards Iceland’s three most famous attractions that make up the popular Golden Circle. The Golden Circle is one of the most popular routes visitors take in Iceland.  Consisting of three major attractions, you will have enough time to take in the magnificent landscape and the rich history that is found at every footstep.

Þingvellir e. Thingvellir national park is strongly rooted in the Icelandic history and is famous for numerous reasons. The national park is home to the magical Silfra fissure where the tectonic plates drift apart. The waters, pond, and fissures are extraordinarily clear and the history of the place is endless. This UNESCO world heritage site is a place that should not be missed.

Geysir hot spring area is located in Haukadalur valley. It’s where the Geysir which all other geysers are named after is located and the area is filled with steam and magical geothermal phenomena. The most active geyser currently is Strokkur. It goes off every 4-10 minutes and treats us to a show that gives you that tingly feeling in your stomach.

Gullfoss or the Golden Falls is next up on the itinerary. It’s one of the most powerful waterfalls in Iceland. It has been a local’s favourite since the Viking times and now it’s your time to explore it.

The extra stops will be at:

Hellisheiðarvirkjun Power Plant will be the first stop that will be made on this tour. It is the largest geothermal power station in Iceland and the largest single-site geothermal power plant in the world. Learn about the development of geothermal energy in Iceland and how the energy is used presented in an accessible and fun way through informative and entertaining multimedia exhibits.

Kerið is a volcanic crater lake. Craters are usually formed by volcanic explosions, but research has shown that this might not have been the case for Kerið. The crater was formed when a cone volcano erupted and emptied its magma reserve. The cone has since then collapsed into its magma chamber and by that created a crater. Due to the formation, the colours are very different and unique.

Skálholt is one of Iceland’s most historical sites, located on the South Coast. It was the epicenter of culture, politics and learning in Iceland for over 700 years. Explore the replica turf house, which was Iceland’s heritage building style.

Faxi waterfall is up next. This beautiful blue fall is a quite hidden and for that wonderful reason, not a busy site. This stunning location is covered with birch and has a sweet charm about it. This is one of those waterfalls you would stare at all day.

Efstidalur farm is a perfect stop after the Golden Circle.  Efstidalur is a family farm located close to Laugarvatn lake. With an ice cream barn at the farm, you can enjoy different flavors of ice cream produced from the milk of the cows living at the farm. It really doesn’t get more local than this and the taste of the ice cream is otherworldly!

Laugarvatn is a small village with a population of only about 200 people. It’s known for its natural warmth and hot springs. It’s also home to the stunning lake Laugarvatn which many of the hot springs are connected to. One of which is the Vígðalaug which was used as a baptism pool when the Icelandic nation became Christian.
