Golden Circle Small Group Tour
The Golden Circle is the most iconic and popular of all the day tours in Iceland. The attractions included in this route are unmissable to all visitors. The Golden Circle is a route comprising 3 main natural wonders; Thingvellir National park, Geysir Geothermal Area, and Gullfoss waterfall, striking and unique stops that demonstrate how tectonic activity and glacial erosion has shaped the landscape of the region.
On our small group tour of the Golden Circle, we add stops at Friðheimar Farm with its Icelandic horse show at the stables, tour the greenhouse, tomato tasting, visit an Icelandic bakery with an Earthquake exhibition and Kerið Volcanic Crater.
The tour is in a minibus which provides a more comfortable and personal experience. Join us and enjoy all that this magnificent route has to offer.
A favourite stop along the Golden Circle is the highly active Geysir Hot Spring Area with boiling mud pits and the lively Strokkur which spouts water 30 meters into the air every few minutes. The area became active more than 1000 years ago and comprises more than a dozen hot spring holes. Although you can only see steam emerging from the surface of Geysir these days, its name was adopted to represent spouting hot springs all over the world.
Along the tour, the newly opened Geysir Center offers guests and travellers a chance to use the restroom and to catch some refreshments as well as lunch. Gullfoss Waterfall
As one of the most popular attractions in all of Iceland, Gullfoss is a waterfall located in the Canyon of the Hvítá River in the southwest of the country. The beautiful Hvítá river rushes southward in three steps into a narrow canyon with a breath-taking roar and grandeur. Furthermore, on clear days the magnificent Langjökull glacier, Iceland's second largest glacier, can be seen in the distance. Guests may use the restroom and purchase food and refreshments at this location as well.
Located on the northern shores of Þingvallavatn, Iceland's largest lake, Þingvellir is the national pride of Iceland and the first National Park. It is, for one, a key location in Icelandic history as the oldest existing parliament in the world first assembled there in 930 AD. For this reason, Þingvellir has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is, therefore, a protected national park due to its unique geology and natural features. From the viewing area the Almannagjá canyon between two tectonic plates can be seen, a visual representation of continental drift.
