Golden Circle & Rafting
The Golden Circle
This incredible tour combines adventure and sightseeing into one amazing package that everyone is sure to enjoy. It begins with a visit to the iconic Golden Circle area, home to the Geysir geothermal area, renowned for its bubbling hot springs that throw molten torrents of water up to 25 meters into the air. Then there is Gullfoss (the golden waterfall), a magnificent three-stage waterfall, whose idyllic setting and seemingly golden waters have made it one of the most popular spots in the entire of Iceland. Followed by a visit to Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which straddles the North American and European tectonic plates. It is also home to Althingi, site of the original Viking parliament, the oldest still operational parliament in the world. Alongside a host of geological wonders too numerous to detail here. It is a spectacular place, which every visitor to Iceland should see.
Then we will travel to the Hvita river (white river), which perfectly blends pulsating white crested rapids and serene canyons, a truly incredible experience, which vaults between the sublime and the fun. The Bruarhlod canyon is a particular highlight, where you will have a chance to leap from the cliff into the seething rapids below.

Whale Watching & the Blue Lagoon
This consists of two contrasting activities, beginning with an exciting whale watching trip, where you may see: Minke whales, Humpback whales, Dolphins, and Porpoises. Our marine experts do all they can to ensure that you will see whales during the tour, providing plenty of useful information along the way. Although it is important to note that weather and sea conditions play a huge role in how many whales we will see. We take everything into account when we plan these tours and will always aim to put you in the best position possible to see these magnificent creatures. Warm clothing is essential as it can get cold out at sea (even on warm summer days), with the option to watch the whales from the inside an option too. Each trip takes about 2.5 – 3.5 hours and is an unmissable chance to see some of the planet’s most incredible animals in the flesh.
From there we will leave you in Reykjavik to have some lunch, before transporting you to the nutrient-rich waters of the Blue Lagoon: nature’s finest spa.
Please note that the pick-up time for the Blue Lagoon can vary subject to the availability of the lagoon itself. We always do our best to make the tour times as convenient for you as possible, but the varying nature of the whale watching tour means that nothing is guaranteed.
