Description

The Golden Circle Classic is our bestselling day tour! See the world famous erupting geyser & hot springs, experience the magnificent Gullfoss Waterfall and follow in the footsteps of the Vikings of old as you walk down the lava canyon where the American and Eurasian continents are literally pulling apart in Þingvellir. And all this in only eight hours!

Step on board one of our new buses, equipped with WiFi connected computer tablets in each seat. On the tablets you can use our GPS Sensitive In Bus Audio Guide, available with a choice of 10 languages.  Aboard will also be a local host, that will happily answer any questions you might have about our peculiar country. In each seat you will also find a USB Charger.

The tour starts with a stop in Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site listing and the birthplace of the oldest existing parliament in the world. This is also where the gigantic tectonic plates of America and Eurasia have pulled apart and the resulting rift valley is right there before your eyes on the shores of Iceland's biggest lake.

Visit the Geysir Hot Springs, the home of the one-and-only original geyser and Iceland's most iconic natural attraction. Here the ground trembles and steaming hot water spouts spectacularly skywards from the famous Strokkur Geyser every few minutes. Now for a leisurely walk down to Gullfoss Waterfall, which is an awesome sight to behold. Here a powerful glacial river cascades down 32 meters on two levels and into a narrow canyon with a thunderous roar.

Simply put, if you only do one tour in Iceland, then this should be the one!


Reykjavík Terminal

The starting point for Reykjavik Sightseeing Tours. Reykjavik Terminal, Skógarhlíð 10, 105 Reykjavik.



Þingvellir National Park

Located on the northern shores of lake Þingvallavatn, Þingvellir is the national pride of Iceland and our first National Park. It is, for one, a key location in Icelandic history as the oldest existing parliament in the world first assembled there in 930 AD. Þingvellir has for this reason been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.               
Besides being a location of historical significance, Þingvellir is also protected as a national park due to its unique geology and natural features. Almannagjá is a canyon formed between two tectonic plates, a visual representation of continental drift.

Laugarvatn

Laugarvatn is a lake and small town in the south of Iceland. The town has a population of about 200, and lies predominantly along the west side of the lake.

Geysir Hot Springs

The most iconic Iceland natural site, the Geysir hot springs are home to the orginal erupting geyser.

A favorite stop along the Golden Circle is the highly active Geysir Hot Spring Area with boiling mud pits, exploding geysers and the lively Strokkur which spouts water 30 meters (100 ft) into the air every few minutes. The newly opened Geysir Center offers exhibits and informative presentations year round.
The area became active more than 1000 years ago and comprises more than a dozen hot water blow holes. Although Geysir is less active these days, it did lend its name to hot springs all over the world.

Gullfoss Waterfall

A powerful and inspiring place. There the glacier water thunders down 32 meters in three steps and into a narrow canyon with an breathtaking roar and grandeur.

Gullfoss is a waterfall located in the canyon of Hvítá river in southwest Iceland. Gullfoss is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Iceland. The wide Hvítá rushes southward in three steps into a narrow canyon with a breathtaking roar and grandeur.
