Golden Circle - In your own time

Explore the iconic Golden Circle, see the legendary Þingvellir National Park, marvel as a geyser shoots steam and hot water skywards at Geysir Hot Springs, and see the majestic queen of Icelandic waterfalls, Gullfoss. In our newest version of the tour, you get to decide when and where to stop and for how long! This unique Hop On / Hop Off tour stops at all of the Golden Circle’s most famous natural wonders and is a must-see for any visitor in Iceland.

The duration of the tour is 7,5-11,5 hours depending on how long you choose to stop at Þingvellir, Geysir and Gullfoss, or how long you want to spend on an activity on this scenic route. With four departures from every stop on the route, you can simply sit back and enjoy the very best Iceland has to offer, all in one day. For instance, we recommend having a picnic at Þingvellir, or hiking up the hill at Geysir to get a panoramic view of the area. For possible activities to combine with this classic tour, please see below.

First stop is Þingvellir National Park, where you retrace the footsteps of ancient Vikings who established their first national parliament here in 930 AD. This would be the settlers first major step towards being an independent nation. Þingvellir is also where the American and Eurasian continental plates are dramatically pulling apart at an annual rate of 2 cm. Also, there, right before your eyes, is Iceland’s largest lake, Þingvallavatn.

Next it´s on to see the world famous Geysir – where the ground trembles and steaming hot water spouts spectacularly skywards from the famous Strokkur Geyser every few minutes. Our last stop is the awesome Gullfoss Waterfall, a breathtaking sight to behold. Here a powerful glacial river cascades down 32 meters on two levels and into a narrow canyon with a thunderous roar.
Have a picnic at Þingvellir, take a longer stroll around Geysir, or simply sit back and enjoy the thunder of Gullfoss for longer. The choice is yours!

"Comfort is King!"

Our south coast tour was lovely! The black sand beaches felt almost other worldly. Waterfalls are stunning. The south coast tour is a must!...even though it is a very long day. However, booking with Reykjavik Sightseeing is a really great option. Of the four companies we had tours with, they were by far the best.

"Golden Circle Tour with a Toddler"

Visiting the Golden Circle with Reykjavik Sightseeing was a great experience. They had a car seat for our 18 month old that allowed him to easily see out the window during the ride between stops. The buses are very nice, and they provide a tablet with tour facts.
