Get to know Iceland’s unique nature and culture on this full-day minibus tour of the Golden Circle. Aside from visiting Gullfoss Waterfall, Geysir Geothermal Area, and Þingvellir National Park, you’ll see some hidden gems often overlooked by travellers. Furthermore, this tour is a small-group one, allowing for a more personalised and relaxed experience.
After a morning pickup in Reykjavík by your friendly, professional guide, you’ll leave the city behind and head into the countryside. As you near the first stop—the town of Hveragerði—you’ll see pillars of white steam rising from the geothermally active ground.
Hveragerði is known for harnessing geothermal power to operate its greenhouses, a product of the town’s location near a tectonic plate boundary. However, these plates not only power the greenhouses but also cause earthquakes. You can learn more about earthquakes by visiting Hveragerði’s informative and engaging exhibition on this natural phenomenon.
Next, the friendly guide will take you to Faxi Waterfall, a hidden gem often overlooked by larger tour groups. Faxi is a broad, shallow waterfall that stretches across the river with a gentle flow that drops into a tranquil pool, offering a picturesque spot for photos and relaxation.
The tour’s highlight is undoubtedly the visit to Gullfoss, the most famous waterfall in Iceland. Be prepared to witness the sheer power and majesty of the falls as they thunder down two tiers into a deep canyon. Take a short walk down to the waterfall and feel the mist on your face as you admire its beauty up close.
The tour then moves to the Myrkholt Wool Farm, a charming stop where visitors can admire and purchase local wool products. During late spring, guests can also interact with adorable horses, foals, sheep, and even newborn lambs. You will surely enjoy capturing the perfect photo with these photogenic creatures.
The next stop is the Geysir geothermal area, where you can witness the natural phenomenon of geysers erupting into the air. The most active geyser in the area is Strokkur, which shoots hot water up to 40 metres high every few minutes.
The final stop is the Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site and the site of the world’s first parliament. Here, you will learn about Iceland’s fascinating history and geology and see where the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates meet.
