Along the way, we will make stops at other interesting places such as Kerid Crater lake and the geothermal town of Hveragerði. It's about time to open your sense of adventure!

We'll visit many exciting places but they are all close by so don’t worry, we'll have enough time to enjoy everything!

We'll head over to the geothermally active valley of Haukadalur, where we'll see the famous Geysir and many hot springs. Witness Strokkur Geyser, which spouts every five minutes and projects steaming water up to 30 m (100 ft) high! 

After hitting the road again, we'll make a short stop to look at Icelandic horses, which are a common sight in the countryside of Iceland.

Gullfoss waterfall side view on Golden Circle tour

Next up is Gullfoss, the most famous waterfall in Iceland in the river Hvíta. Stand close to the cascade and feel the mist of glacial water on your face. The power of Gullfoss is simply inspirational. Around this time, it should be lunchtime, so we'll stop at a local place for food.

To complete the Golden Circle, we end our tour with a visit to Thingvellir National Park. The area holds great historical importance and has many remarkable geological features. The Eurasian and American tectonic plates meet here, and Althingi (the Icelandic parliament) was formed on these rocks in 930 AD, making it the oldest parliamentary site in the world. Thingvellir was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2004.

The geothermal town of Hveragerði is best-loved for its countless hissing hot springs and greenhouses. Sometimes called "the earthquake town," Hveragerði experiences minor tremors once in a while. Take a short walk and check out an earthquake exhibition in Sunnumörk Shopping Center free of charge.  

Your Golden Circle small-group sightseeing tour starts with pick-up from your selected location in Reykjavik at 8:00 a.m. Please note, that the pick-up can take up to 30 min.

Check out our list of designated pick-up points here.

Another unforgettable attraction on the Golden Circle route is Kerid crater lake, formed 3000 years ago. Once you get to see it from above, you'll understand why it's sometimes referred to as "The Eye of the World." This name was given to the lake because of its appearance: the aquamarine-colored lake enclosed by red volcanic rocks creates a surreal view that might remind you of an eye.
