The Golden Circle

Today we’ll visit the three main highlights on Iceland’s iconic Golden Circle and add extra stops for an unforgettable day. Thingvellir National Park is a historically important location and UNESCO World Heritage Site. Iceland’s first parliament, Althing, was founded here in 930 CE. A popular diving and snorkeling site, Silfra Fissure is also located in the park. Geysir Geothermal Area in Haukadalur Valley puts on a show like no other. The most active geyser in the area is Strokkur, which goes off every 5-10 minutes. Gullfoss Waterfall is one of the most powerful waterfalls in the country. Falling in two drops, it’s just over 30 meters (100 ft) high. Apart from visiting the Golden Circle, we’ll also step off the touristy track to visit Kerið. This volcanic crater lake formed when a cone volcano emptied its magma reserve 3,000 years ago. The cone collapsed into the magma chamber and created the crater. To get a closer look at local life, we’ll visit Friðheimar Greenhouse Farm. Here you’ll have a chance to taste locally-grown tomatoes as one of the farmers talks you through the growing process. On our way back to Reykjavik, we’ll stop to pet cute Icelandic horses. We’ll drop you off in Reykjavik at around 5 p.m.

Geysir Geothermal Area is famous for its boiling mud pools and exploding geysers. It’s home to Strokkur, the most active geyser in the area. Strokkur spouts water high up into the air every few minutes. 

Gullfoss Waterfall is an impressive sight on the white water Hvita River. The water cascades down in two stages from a height of around 30 meters (100 feet). 

Kerið Volcanic Crater Lake stands out from the surrounding landscape in red volcanic rock slopes. The crater lake is around 3,000 years old. The mesmerizing water is aquamarine blue.

Reykjanes Peninsula

Today we’ll visit Reykjanes Peninsula, a UNESCO Geopark located along the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Once everyone’s aboard our minibus, we’ll make our way towards Kleifarvatn Geothermal Lake. We’ll ride across large lava fields that resemble a lunar landscape. Our next stop is Krýsuvík Geothermal Area with its multicolored hills and bubbling mud pools. Stroll on the boardwalk to explore the area to see all the major sights. We’ll meet the large colony of sea birds that live on the Valahnúkur Cliffs. The cliffs themselves are just as impressive as the birds. Right by the cliffs, we’ll see the oldest lighthouse in Iceland, Reykjanesviti, originally built in 1878. Walk from one continent to another in a few seconds! A bridge between Europe and North America stands in Sandvík. The bridge between the continental plates stretches around 15 meters (50 feet) and symbolizes the connection between the old and new worlds. After visiting Reykjanes, you can choose to go back to Reykjavik, or we can drop you off at the Blue Lagoon or Keflavik International Airport. If you would like to go to the Lagoon, you need to book your tickets in advance (we recommend booking for 3 p.m.).
