All about the trip
On the Golden Circle tour, you will visit three of Iceland´s most famous sites: Geysir geothermal area, Gullfoss waterfall and Þingvellir National Park.
Geysir is the place, from which all other geysers in the world got their name. The famous Geysir does not erupt anymore, but the smaller impressive, Strokkur, erupts every 4-8 minutes and shoots a column of water up to 40 metres up in the air.
Gullfoss waterfall is a part of the glacial river Hvítá, which gets its water from Langjökull glacier, the second largest glacier in Iceland. The step-waterfall is quite the sight, and from many viewpoints, it looks like the waterfall falls straight into an abyss, but in reality, it falls into a crevice which is 32 metres deep.
The last stop of the day is at Þingvellir National Park, where you can see the North-American and Eurasian tectonic plates above ground.
You will arrive back within Reykjavík city limits approximately at 16:30. You will have a few hours to spend before you join our Northern Lights tour either at 21:00 (16 Oct – 14 March) or at 22:00 (25 August – 15 October & 15 March – 15 April).
The Northern Lights, also known as Aurora Borealis, are caused by the interaction of particles from the sun with the upper atmosphere near the North Pole.
We will take you out of the city for the best possible view of the Aurora Borealis. The locations visited during the Northern Lights tour vary from day to day - depending on weather conditions.Watch on Youtube
