Pick up from your Reykjavik hotel or guesthouse happens at 9am (be ready by 8:30am). Your guided minibus tour of Iceland’s Golden Circle takes you to dramatic landscape, glacial rivers and Iceland’s three natural jewels: Geysir hot spring, Thingvellir National Park, and Gullfoss waterfall.

The first stop, Thingvellir National Park, offers an introduction to Icelandic history with a visit to the foundation site of the the Viking Parliament, the oldest existing parliament in the world. You’ll also witness Iceland’s unique geography at the rift between the European and American continents.

From Thingvellir Valley, the tour continues to Iceland’s crown, the scenic “Golden Waterfall” of Gullfoss and the Geysir hot spring. The nearby Strokkur geyser provides a fountain show for onlookers by blowing steam into the air several times an hour.

Your tour ends with drop-off at your departure point.
