Discover Iceland's most famous outdoor attractions on this half-day tour of the Golden Circle, which takes the stress out of planning transport with included hotel pickup and drop-off. You’ll travel between dispersed attractions with ease in a climate-controlled coach with Wi-Fi and interactive tablets, listening to guide commentary throughout. This is the perfect way to witness Iceland's scenic highlights if you've got limited time.
What to Expect
After a morning pickup from your Reykjavik hotel, you'll travel in style on a bus with Wi-Fi access and GPS sensitive tablets with audio commentary. A guide provides commentary during the bus journey. 

The tour starts at UNESCO World Heritage Site, Thingvellir National Park. Here you can see where the American and Eurasian tectonic plates have pulled apart and created a rift valley: its an amazing place to take photos of Iceland's largest lake and enjoy panoramic views.

Next you'll stop off at Geysir Hot Springs, where you'll witness the world-famous erupting Strokkur Geyser. If you're hungry, you'll be able to pick up snacks and drinks from shops here.

Finally, you'll head to the stunning Gullfoss Waterfall. The two-tiered waterfall cascades down 104 feet (32 meters) and roars as the water hits the glacial lake at the base.

Your day finishes with a drop-off at your hotel.

Best tour ever in Reykjavik

This tour was probably my best excursion in my trip. The Italian guide Marco made it really cool. He was funny and gave us really interesting informations about both history and geology. I definitely recommend it.
