If you are going to do one tour in Iceland, then you need to do this one.
The Grand Golden Circle is a compact tour that takes you to a series of remarkable and diverse sites in the Southwest of Iceland in a span of only eight hours. If you are only doing one tour in Iceland, this is the one.
In the Geysir geothermal area we get the chance to observe the boiling hot spring Strokkur spout steaming water up to 30 meters into the air every 8 minutes.
The iconic waterfall of Gullfoss, or Golden Falls, is only a 7 minutes’ drive from Geysir – located in the glacial river Hvítá. It's elegant and majestic form is like no other, where the torrential river water plummets in two steps down into a 32 meters deep canyon.
Þingvellir National Park is not only a site of geological wonder, located at the intersection of the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates but also a place charged with history, as the site of the national parliament since 930. Þingvellir tells stories of geographical and political struggles, compromises and ongoing evolution. Þingvellir was accepted on the UNESCO World Heritage List for its cultural values in 2004.
Additionally, the tour includes visits to the volcanic crater lake Kerið, and the waterfall Faxi.
In the late afternoon, you will be dropped back off to your accommodation of choice in Reykjavik.
