"We did a Golden Circle tour and our driver/guide Audur was excellent! Despite an occasionally rainy and cloudy winter day, she gave us a great tour! She was very informative, telling us lots stories along with information about each site we visited. She got us safely to every stop along the way, keeping us warm and happy! Every site we visited was fun and we left with terrific photos..."


Tour Description

Strokkur geyser erupting

Strokkur geyser spouting water

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

The Golden Circle Complete

At Extreme Iceland we prefer to operate tours by minibus in smaller groups. This gives us the opportunity to deliver the personal service we feel you deserve.

Gullfoss Falls The Golden Waterfall

Gullfoss Falls - The Golden Waterfall

Crater Kerid

Our first stop is at Kerið, a volcanic crater lake. First it was thought that Kerið was formed by a huge volcanic explosion (as is usual for volcanic craters), however research now tells us this was probably a cone volcano which erupted and emptied its magma reserve. The cone collapsed into the magma chamber and created the crater lake bordered by strongly coloured red volcanic rock.

Friðheimar Greenhouse

A rare interactive, tomato greenhouse experience - in Iceland! Tomatoes like you’ve never had before! Friðheimar will prove it is not impossible to grow these fruits in Iceland, despite the long, dark winter! Upon your visit, you will see how this is made possible in this cold climate, by creating warm Mediterranean conditions! At Friðheimar you will get to see the processes that go into maintaining greenhouse horticulture. You will also get to enjoy the special experience of entering a greenhouse with the fresh fragrance of fresh tomato plants. Fridheimar also manufactures various delicious jams and chutneys.

Geysir Geothermal Area

We head over to the geothermally active valley of Haukadalur where we will see the famous Geysir and many hot springs. We will also see Strokkur geyser, which spouts every five minutes or so and projects steaming water to a height of about 60-100 feet.

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

Almannagja canyon Thingvellir National Park

Almannagja canyon, at Thingvellir National Park

Gullfoss Waterfall (The Golden Falls)

Next up is Gullfoss the most famous waterfall in Iceland in the river Hvíta. It’s power is inspirational and we can stand so close to it that we feel the mist of glacial water on our faces. Around this time it should be lunch time so we will stop at a local place for food.

geysir geothermal area

Strokkur, the geyser erupts every 6-10 minutes

icelandic horse golden circle tour iceland

We will stop for a meet & greet with some Icelandic Horses

Thingvellir National Park and Öxarárfoss waterfall

To complete the Golden Circle we end our tour with visit to the National Park Thingvellir. 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. There’s a beautiful waterfall nearby as well, in fact Öxarárfoss and Thingvellir have been designated UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Nice tour in the open air

5 by Golubtsova Irina April 4, 2019
"Nice tour in the open air: a piece of history, impressive volcanic crater, beautiful scenery at Gullfoss waterfall and Thingvellir National Park, spectacular Strokkur and collecting stones at the geotermal area, time for shopping and lunch, funny horses, who like apples. Unfortunately we have not visited Faxi waterfall and Efstidalur."

Excellent Tour Guide

5 by MT March 29, 2019
Our tour guide is attentive to her guests. For example, spend time to introduce herself & group friends and willing to talk with her guests. My friend and I have had a great experience in Iceland as met our excellent tour guide.

Best Tour of Our Trip!

5 by Victoria Randell March 15, 2019
This tour was a highlight of our trip. Our tour guide was knowledgable and friendly. We had plenty of time to see all the stops on the tour and learnt a lot too. Would highly recommend for anyone looking for a slightly more in depth golden circle tour.

Nice tour

4 by Kelly T February 26, 2019
We had a nice time. I would have rather stopped at a greenhouse - hydroponics- maybe one with a restaurant. Instead of eating at the geyser- too crowded. And getting ice cream was ok- nothing to see.

Thanks Johan!!

5 by Anja and Lisa and Emma from Berlin February 19, 2019
"Thanks to Johan, our lovely and always friendly tour guide, we learned so much about the island, Iceland, the landscape, the weather, the everyday life, even some jokes and fun facts: more people speak Clingonic then Icelandic... ?‚ We loved the tour!"

Nice tour in Iceland, I saw many interesting things which will be on my memory for a long time. I can recommend everyone who is curious the icelandic world.

Excellent tour

5 by Christie B December 30, 2018
This was an excellent tour. It was well organized and well run. I especially appreciated our fantastic guide, Yannis, who did a stupendous job. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the various sites we visited. He was courteous, kind, and very friendly. He gave us excellent explanations that helped us enjoy the sites more fully. We had a fantastic time!

The plus is definitely for your guide

5 by Tom December 19, 2018
"Ragnar can only be described as legendary. His candar never ceased to be upbeat and involved in the moment - even with sleepy tourists on board. Would have been great to get out and walk around in nature a bit more, but that's difficult with winter daylight hours and a busy tour schedule"

Golden Cirkle Superior is a must

5 by Birgitta November 12, 2018
We were at this tour 4 november and we enjoyed it very much. Our tourguide was entertaining us during the tour with nice stories from Iceland. We will visit Iceland again in summer. Thank you.

outstanding

5 by Janneke November 9, 2018
This was an outstanding trip. Our guide was fabulous - personable, interesting and friendly. In spite of minus 10 deg with the wind chill and a sideways wind that cut into us at the Gullifoss waterfall, the tour was the best part of our Iceland trip. Absolutely amazing trip. I cannot say enough. Thank you Extreme Iceland for a tour that was worth every penny!!.

Fantastic experience!

5 by Karen November 8, 2018
We had an amazing day with our friendly and knowledgeable tour guide Pascale. We saw some beautiful landmarks and thanks to the great weather we got fantastic photos. We got lots of stops and plenty of time to enjoy each place. I particularly enjoyed the hike to the waterfall and then up the hill with scenic views, where we were collected. We would highly recommend this tour!

Awesome trip - great guide

5 by Casteels November 6, 2018
"Went with a friend to visit Iceland in a glimpse. Friends recomended the extended Golden Circle trip from Extreme Iceland. Its a dagtrip where you see more then Just the 3 big attracions. So you get more of a glimpse of icelandic nature. Visiting the thermale central andere stopping for an ice-cream topped it. Best of the trip is the small bus en the Guise we had. His enthousiasm just made is smile all the time :)"

A worthwhile experience

4 by Sam October 25, 2018
"Had a great time seeing all the interesting features of southern Iceland I felt we could have seen the large waterfall at silfra as that would have been awesome to see otherwise it was good fun"

Fun and informative day with a great guide

5 by Matt Davis October 22, 2018
Hawk (I wish I could remember his Icelandic name!) was a fantastic guide -- engaging, friendly, and informative, making the tour a fun and memorable experience.

4 by Dave August 26, 2018
Had an excellent adventure touring the natural wonders of Iceland. Our guide was so knowledgeable and willing to share his life as a native 'icelandic' son. My wife and I learned so much about Iceland during the day. Thanks Extreme Iceland!

This tour is amazing, and the guide Aaron (sp) was AMAZING, knowledgeable, friendly and made the trip memorable. I recommend anyone traveling to Iceland to take this tour because you will regret it if you don't.Oh and Thingvellir National Park is breathtaking if you're lucky your tour guide with arrive when no other people are around. Thanks Iceland I miss you already!!!

Beautiful sights. Tour guide, Nick, was knowledgeable and personable.

Beautiful tour, informative and helpful guide!

5 by Paula M August 1, 2018
"This tour was great, with lots of beautiful scenery. Super experience and highly recommended. The small van-size bus helped us load and unload faster than a large tour bus, which was nice. Bus also had wifi, which was helpful for folks like me who needed to finish some travel arrangements. I appreciated our local tour guide and driver, who gave us some info about each site and had a good sense of humor. A big thanks to him, too, for helping with my request for a different drop-off site so that I could get to a bus terminal (a bit outside the heart of the city). He figured out a good place to drop me off and gave directions to get to my destination. He really went above and beyond in helping me with that, which was awesome."

Great experience with kids!

5 by Jay July 28, 2018
Great day tour if you dont have a lot of time. Was very kid friendly. Would definetly recommend it!

Golden circle tour - plus rather much more

4 by Claus Helweg OVESEN (biologist, b. 1945; Roskilde, DK) July 24, 2018
"It was a good sightseeing tour, and we were very lucky with the weather. The style og our young guide and driver 23.07 was a bit""laid back"" or to my opinion a bit too relaxed, but that is of course a personal opinion. The programme of the tour was rich in other points than the three golden circle sights, which mainly was O.K., but a little more time at Gullfoss and specially Thingvellir was needed. We only reached the platform at the west end of Almannagjau - and the waterfall on the eastside. 2-3 of the smaller stops could be left out (f.ex. some pet horses) to give the above-mentioned better time at the most important sights. But all in all we were satisfied with, what we saw, thank you."

Awesome adventure

5 by JenH July 23, 2018
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our Extreme Iceland Golden Circle tour. We were only in Iceland for two days so this was a perfect way to see a lot of locations in one day. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting the beautiful country of Iceland.

Golden Circle Tour

5 by Zoe July 18, 2018
A wonderful tour packing in lots to see with great photo opportunities. Pick up was swift and the tour guide kept to schedule, it would have been nice to have a little more time at some of the sites especially the geyser which was fabulous and looked like there was a wonderful shop for souvenier shopping. Seats in the bus were a little cramped but the guide was informative and the views spectacular.

Golden circle Wow!!

5 by Helen Vandermey July 16, 2018
Our guide Ennar Samuelsson? was superb and very funny. Extremely knowledgeable about Iceland but did not overwhelm you with too much details. The scenery speaks for itself and is awe inspiring. We are glad we picked the tour with the Geothermal power plant and thingvillar National Park as they are so key to your nation and how if differs from many other places on this earth. Learning about the tectonic plates and the parliament added much to the other Golden circle stops that other companies don't all do. We picked 4 other tours with your company and all were very well thought out with tremendous staff offering very different adventures we had never tried before.

Experience

5 by Allan Furlong July 6, 2018
The tour guide was very good and the day out was well worth it. I would recomend that anyone going to Landmannalaugur to book with Extreme Iceland/Arctic Adventures. It was an exceptional day - despite the bad weather to start. I could not have been happier with the experience and really enjoyed the company of our guide on the day (Friday 29th) Allan

great tour

5 by Korl007 June 17, 2018
if you want to take a break from driving yourself you have to take this tour! groups are small (max. 18-22 ppl) and they give you a lots of time to explore the area you are in;

Amazing

5 by Sarah June 11, 2018
10/10 would recommend! Saw the coolest sites and in great time with an awesome guide. Thanks again!

Great tour and guide

The tour was very well done and the guide was excellent.

AMAZING!

5 by Nina June 5, 2018
I loved this tour so much. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and answered all the questions people had during the trip. Also - with a smaller van (with about 20 people), it made everything a little more intimate. Loved it!

Golden circle - complete

5 by Lucy May 18, 2018
Had an amazing day on this tour. Booking was easy, lots of details on the tour and pick up. Tour guide Kata was awesome, friendly and knowledgeable. We had enough time on each location. I would higly recommend this tour, lots to see and learn and enjoy!

Good tour

4 by Arja May 13, 2018
As a feedback I would like to say that the atmosphere was fine and relaxed with the viking stories. However, I would like to have heard more stories about the places. Especially not that much was told about the place were the first parliament met.

An iconic toiur one must not miss

5 by Robert May 12, 2018
We only had a few days on Iceland and we wanted to take advantage of the tour. Despite the fact we actually had "terrible" weather, our guide was fantastic and made sure we had a good experience. For those that have only one day to visit, we recommend Extreme Iceland.

Golden Circle Tour_April 2018

5 by Florence Iverson May 9, 2018
I went on the Golden Circle Tour in late April 2018. Extreme Iceland far exceeded my expectations. I had a wonderful group of travelers in my group - a couple from Hong Kong, another solo traveler from the U.S., and a family of three from Madrid. Being off season, our group was small and we all had opportunities to get to know one another. Our tour guide, Micah immediately created a relaxed, fun, and interesting tour by informing us so much about Iceland. I learned about culture, history, the environment, and so much more. I would book another Extreme Iceland tour when I return to Iceland without question.

A Must Do in Reykjavík

5 by Kendra May 6, 2018
This tour was excellent. The minibus was comfortable and clean with ports to charge your electronics. The small tour size allows you to enjoy the Golden Circle tour fully. You get side stops that you wouldn't get on the big bus where your restricted to just the 3 main stops. Definitely get the ice cream at the farm. So goo. It's a must do. Good for old and young alike!!!

9 hours Golden Circle tour was amazing!!!

5 by Angelica Hernandez April 29, 2018
The Complete Golden Circle Tour (9 hours tour) was amazing!!! It is worth the 9 hours drive, we saw a lot of Iceland in 1 day, and it is more complete than other typical Golden Circle tours; we had enough time to enjoy every single stop and the best is that we were only 7 people in a minibus. The driver and guide (same person) was a really nice person, a gentleman, and he shared very interesting stories with us. I definitely recommend this tour.

Golden Circle Tour

5 by Robin Higgins April 26, 2018
Our tour was amazing. Our tour guide went above and beyond our expectations. We enjoyed his knowledge and his personal stories of the area.

Great adventure

5 by Anna-Leena Melleri April 23, 2018
9 stops in interesting places - especially the power plant. Young guide was telling us well -enough but however not too much! Actually, the only negative thing was Extreme Iceland websites!! We wanted to join Golden Circle & Secret Lagoon Tour but it was too difficult to find it! The price was the same and we were disappointed when we finally understood that we were joining a wrong tour!!

Great trip!

5 by Rin April 22, 2018
We were really impressed with Extreme Iceland who were very organised. They came 5 minutes within the stated pickup time, everything was smooth, and our guide (Palli?) did a great job. He was very patient and interesting and also explained everything clearly throughout the day. Would highly recommend!

Best Tour & Tour Guide Ever!

5 by Morgan Turner April 16, 2018
My best friend & I did the Golden Circle tour while on vacation in Reykjavik. We were picked up right from our hostel and our tour group was small & cozy. Our tour guide (your name starts with a Z & I’m sorry we forgot!) was the absolute best and so warm and friendly. You made our time in Iceland unforgettable, and we hail Extreme Iceland as the best website to book tours from! Takk!

We enjoyed our tour of the Golden Circle with your company. Even though we were in a small group, we felt we had personalized service. Thomas was a great tour guide! Thank you.

The naked truth

5 by Janine April 9, 2018
Anyone planning a trip to Iceland will know that there are 100’s of different tour operators and selecting one is a daunting experience. Upon arrival at my hotel around 6pm, I received notifications that my tours for that evening and the next day were cancelled. I only had 5 days so there was no time to waste. I booked around 8pm with Extreme Iceland on line and then went to bed hoping they’ll see it on time. The next morning I went to the collection point and was greeted by a very friendly, funny and kind Bjorg. She was our tour guide for the day and arrived with my name printed on the guest list. She was very informative, shared interesting stories with us, drove like a pro through the snow blizzard and dropped us off at the closest point to all the excursions. I can highly recommend Bjorg and Extreme Iceland. No need to read millions of reviews of 100’s of tour operators, just book with Extreme Iceland. They trustworthy, efficient, professional and safe.

Great Tour

5 by Travelin' Fam April 7, 2018
We took 4 hours with Extreme Iceland - one Golden Circle and 3 Northern Lights. The Golden Circle tour was great, less so the Northern Lights tours. Our Golden Circle guide was nice and knowledgeable...and the tour was fantastic and fun! I would highly recommend this one....

Excellent tour, expensive lunch!

5 by Steven Rees April 7, 2018
The tour was excellent. We went on a Saturday morning, for the 9-hour tour. Pickup was prompt outside of our hotel, and we got underway immediately. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, and gave us time to explore without keeping us herded like sheep. We had about 30 minutes at the power plant and an hour at the Geysir for sights and lunch, otherwise stops were about 20-30 minutes. Power plant first (pick up some water from the cafe if you haven't brought any!), then off to the other stops on the website. We got lunch around 1pm at the Geysir. Lunch at this cafeteria is pretty pricey ($10-15 for a sandwich and $15-20 for soup), so bring your own if you want to save a bit. You can have a backpack with you on the tour, so no worries here. Hiking shoes are recommended for some of the muddier areas (pretty much just the crater for us), otherwise normal walking shoes were fine. Our tour guide also stopped to feed some Icelandic horses since we had time, and get ice cream at a local place. Back to the hotel right on time, just a few minutes after 6! Excellent trip, and would do again! Bring a camera, especially if you want to record the Geysir, and our tour guide recommended not standing downwind of it like the other tourists; he was very right!!

Great intro to Iceland

4 by Iceland Newbie April 4, 2018
There are lots of Golden Circle tours to choose from. I encourage travelers to look at the extras to decide which one to take. We chose this one for the small group (we were eight) and the Icelandic horse visit and ice cream farm-to-table experience. In fact, the visit to the power plant, which we weren't too keen on, turned out to be fascinating, maybe the best extra of all. I definitely recommend that. Bjorg was a terrific guide. She told us interesting and relevant stories from her family and never rushed us at any of the sites. She also had some pretty challenging driving on the icy, windy terrain coming down from the power plant (some cars had gone off the road), but she did fine. I was glad I was not driving!

5 by Kimberly Clark March 25, 2018
We had booked 4 tours with you and every single one was great, friendly and very informative. We would recommend this tour company to anyone who visits Iceland.

So much crammed into one tour! Brilliant!

5 by Caryn March 18, 2018
We chose the Golden Circle Complete tour as places other than the usual three were included and we were very glad we did. Our guide was lovely and chatted all the way about the things we were seeing and Iceland in general. We were booked in for lunch at the tomato farm, where we had homemade soup and bread - absolutely delicious! We were told all about the tomato farming after our meal. Then we met some beautiful Icelandic horses who didnt mind being stroked at all. During the day we saw the Kerid crater, the tomato farm, Gulfoss waterfall, Pingvellan National Park, the Geysir, another very beautiful waterfall that I cant find the name of! and stopped for icecream at a dairy farm (made with milk from their own cows). Our guide walked with us through the National Park and showed us the place of the Iceland Parliament and the Drowning Pool, where several poor women were drowned for various offences after being sentenced at the nearby court. We then walked to the top of the hill to the best views we had ever seen! Lots of photos were taken. We arrived back about 7pm at our drop off point. The meal and the icecream were not in with the cost of the tour but were reasonable (by Iceland standards). There were plenty of stops for comfort breaks. The tour was well worth the money and we had enjoyed every minute of it.

Golden Circle Complete

5 by Nehal Aggarwal March 13, 2018
Our tour guide Marcin was excellent. He was knowledgeable and patient. We had plenty of time to enjoy each site and were not rushed at all. He made many stops along the road so we could enjoy waterfalls and take pictures with the scenic views. I high recommend this tour for anyone looking to experience the golden circle and chase after some waterfalls!

Tour tranquilo

4 by Maria Carolina Cunha March 8, 2018
Por ser um tour feito com uma van, teve menos gente no tour, o que proporcionou um melhor aproveitamento.

Great tour

5 by Johanna March 7, 2018
Andrea was a great guide all along. Fantastic day with many stops. The mini-bus was a bit crowded though. 4 persons in the back seats was a bit too much. Our advice to you is to leave one seat empty. Apart from that, we had a very Nice day. Thank You!

Golden Circle + Tour

4 by Jourdan March 7, 2018
Andrea our guide was excellent and accommodating. The sites were great and gave a wonderful sense of Iceland. My only qualm was that at times we felt rushed along from site to site. Not really being able to fully relish and appreciate a site due to a lack of time on site. I’d still do a tour with this company. Just wish I had more time to truly enjoy these wonderful places.

Golden Circle Tour - Fantastic!

5 by Brad C. February 26, 2018
We did the Golden Circle tour and had a wonderful time. Our tour guide was friendly, informative, funny, and made sure we had sufficient time at all the stops. The Circle was busy on the day we did the tour, but our guide made sure to drop us off right at all the entrances and picked us up on the way out - it helped to avoid some of the crowds. I'd highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Iceland. We went in February, and my wife and I are already planning a second trip to see all the sights in summer.

A brilliant tour to fabulously beautiful golden circle,Iceland.

"I was so pleased I booked a small guided tour for this trip. Our guide and driver was amazing. She was knowledgeable, helpful and went out of her way to make sure the trip was memorable. Thank you."

Fantastic tour

5 by Komal February 9, 2018
"Much more than we expected it to be! Our tour guide not only showed us the sites but in between the stops was informative about Iceland in general and gave us an insight into the country and its people that we otherwise would not have had. Highly recommended! :)"

Great tour

5 by Kelly Walker February 3, 2018
Excellent tour saw so much in one day! Our tour guide yannis was really nice and told us a lot about the country. Couldn't have been better.

Excellent

5 by Lindsay February 3, 2018
"Our tour guide Yanis(?) was excellent. Really friendly, informative and a good driver. The tour itself was chosen as the online description went into detail about the places we visited - many others simply told you about the standard stops (is Gulfoss, Geyser etc). We also wanted a tour that didn't go to the Blue Lagoon, as we'd booked that separately. This tour also stopped at Gedir crater and a Geothermal power station, which my boyfriend LOVED. It's so central to the Icelandic way of life it was really interesting to hear and see how it all works. But for those not as interested in it as others, we were only the for about half an hour so it didn't drag on and on. All in all I thought the information provided before I booked the tour, the booking process, and the tour itself were excellent, and would have no hesitation in recommending."

Golden circle complete :)

5 by Lucy February 1, 2018
Went on this tour on Tuesday and was not disappointed at all!!! Tour guide (eagle) was amazing really funny and didn’t make the tour boring like normal guides! The tour itself is incredible a full day of sightseeing. Had a few extra stops thrown in as well we a extra waterfall and the Icelandic horses. The ice cream is a must on the trip too it was delicious!!! The only downfall we had with the tour was we felt that we didn’t get enough time at the geysir as this is the same stop as the lunch break!!

Golden Circle Complete

5 by Wendy van der Geld January 26, 2018
We did the Golden Circle Complete Tour by minibus. We were very lucky with the weather and our tour guide (Pelmi) added some extra stops to our tour. What a beautiful and amazing places we have seen! We recommend everyone taking this tour with Extreme Iceland / Arctic Adventures.

Excellent tour!

5 by Verified customer March 28, 2017
Diddi was awesome. In a day we saw amazing aspects of Icelandic nature, and also learned about the way of life and culture. It was perfect! Diddi was friendly, patient, and eager to answer questions. I sat near the front of the bus, so I'm not sure if the people at the back could hear the speakers. Maybe they did!

We had a very good time!

5 by Verified customer March 16, 2017
Jóhannes our tour guide was very informative, pointing out important landscape features. We had a very good time! Thank you for making our trip a unforgettable experience.

5 by Verified customer March 4, 2017
Less time at the power plant would have given us more time at the volcano crater lake as we really had to rush and didn't have enough time to walk around crater and down to lake, whereas we were stood around waiting at the power plant (although it was very interesting there, could have been 15 mins shorter).

The best tours I have ever been on in my life.

5 by Verified customer February 9, 2017
The best tours I have ever been on in my life. Tour guides were fantastic and very knowledgeable. They were also very passionate about their own land which made both tours even better. A big thank you to the Golden Circle Complete tour guide on Thursday, 9th Feb and the Sensational Iceland tour guide on Friday, 10th Feb

Will definitely use you again and recommend to others

5 by Verified customer January 18, 2017
Guide was excellent had a lot of knowledge and gave us a good insight into Iceland. Felt that we saw everything we had expected- possibly would have liked longer at the last stop- the national park but the guide was conscious that there were people going on evening tour that had to be back. Apart from that an excellent tour and will definitely use you again and recommend to others.
