The Golden Circle
Join one of our best-rated and most popular small group tours and visit three of Iceland's best-known sights; Geysir, Gullfoss and Þingvellir, commonly referred to as the Golden Circle. The maximum group size is 25 people.
Gullfoss (e. Golden Falls) is considered the queen of Icelandic waterfalls. Its powerful presence is an experience no one should miss as the waterfall cascades down to a deep gorge and is often crowned with a glorious rainbow.
Geysir geothermal area is a showstopper in its own right, with spouting hot springs and a moonlike surface. While the enormous hot spring Geysir is the king of this castle, the main attraction here is its more active brother Strokkur, erupting every few minutes in this picturesque setting.
The last but certainly not least stop of the day is at Thingvellir National Park. This Unesco World Heritage Site is a unique place of visible geological wonders and the site of Iceland’s historical Viking parliament. At Þingvellir you can stand between the Eurasian and American tectonic plates that are pulling apart at a rate of a few centimetres per year while drinking in the rich Viking history of the area.
While this destination isn’t technically part of the famous Golden Circle, this tour is scheduled for seven hours, giving your guide leeway to take you here on your way back to the city. And Kerid is a bonus destination like no other. This is a 3,000-year-old volcanic crater that couldn’t be more picturesque if it was CGI in a sci-fi blockbuster. Take a picture, post it on your social media and watch your account swell with views.
If you only get one day in Iceland, we highly recommend this tour!

historically significant. Apart from being the location of the oldest
parliament in the world, Alþingi, which was formed in 930. it is also a place
where you can see the Mid-Atlantic ridge above ground. The Eurasian and

centimetres per year.
