Full-Day Golden Circle and Northern Lights Tour
From US$182.03
The Golden Circle is one of Iceland’s most popular tourist circuits, with opportunities to see where continental plates converge, a 2-tiered canyon waterfall, and the Geysir after which all other geysers are named. Visit the Golden Circle with a guide who knows the best ways to get around while keeping you free to focus on the scenery. Afterward, spend the evening hunting for the northern lights.
What to Expect
Your morning begins with a pickup from your hotel or one of the city pickup bus zones. Hop aboard the minivan and head toward Hveragero, often called the “flower village” because of the many greenhouses there. Learn about the town’s interesting energy usage and make a quick stop at the local bakery (own expense).

Next is Gullfoss waterfall, which you see from above and up close. Then, make the trip to the Geysir geothermal area, where you explore on your own and have lunch (own expense).

Next, spend some time at Thingvellir National Park. Learn about the founding of Iceland’s Parliament, and see the geological rifts caused by the separation of tectonic plates.

Rest in Reykjavik in the afternoon and head out for a northern lights tour in the evening. Your guide drives you out of the city to find the best spots to see the lights. Afterward, head back to the capital and finish with a drop-off at your hotel.

Overall this tour company is very, very good. Mathilde, the young lady who I booked the tour with, was very responsive in answering questions and addressing my pre-tour concerns via several emails. I was glad that the tour group was fairly small and the mini...More

The Winter Package was absolutely wonderful!

We had a wonderful time during our three tours (the winter package) with IGT. Our Northern Lights guide, Thor was excellent and knew exactly where to take us for the trip. We had so much fun "chasing" the lights and were thankful that they had...More
