Iceland's most popular natural wonders in one day.

The Golden Circle Tour is in the morning, which allows for a 3 to 6 hour interval before heading off on the Northern Lights tour. That interval is the perfect opportunity to grab dinner or go on our Cheers to Reykjavík tour in Reykjavík.

The Golden Circle Tour is where we visit the country´s three iconic natural treasures: Þingvellir National Park, where the American and Eurasian plates have been pulling apart; the erupting geyser that sends water and steam spouting skywards; and the spectacular Gullfoss Waterfall where a glacial river thunders 32 meters into a canyon. When night falls we set off hunting for the magical and elusive Northern Lights. Of course it all depends on the weather forecast and visibility conditions as to whether we go, so do keep this in mind. And, don´t forget, the Auroras are only visible over the winter months.

Tour Highlights

Þingvellir

Þingvellir is a site of historical, cultural, and geological importance and is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Iceland. It is a National Park since 1930 and a UNESCO world heritage site, hosting the old Þingvellir parliament. It lies in a rift valley that marks the crest of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge.

Geysir

Geysir, southwestern Iceland is the first geyser described in a printer source and the first known among Europeans. Geysir is in Haukadalur valley, also home to Strokkur geyser. Eruptions at Geysir can be up to 70 metres. Strokkur now erupts every 8-10 minutes from 15-20 metres up to 40 metres high.

The Northern Lights

The bright dancing lights of the aurora are collisions between electrically charged particles from our sun that enter the earth's atmosphere. Auroral displays appear in different colours, usually green and pink. If lucky, you find shades of red, yellow, green, blue, and violet colours.

Gullfoss

Gullfoss is a waterfal that flows from Hvítá glacial river. It plummets down 32 meters into a canyon measuring up to a 70 meters deep. The waterfall's existence is the result of a hard fought legal battle in 1907 by the first Icelandic environmentalist, Sigríður Tómasóttir.

Almannagjá

Historically, Almannagjá was a campsite for the people of the Parliament (Alþingi) every summer. Hence the name meaning Everyman's Gorge. Through it runs the Öxará river, cascading down a waterfall forming the infamous Drekkingarhylur, where adulterous women were thrown into the abyss to drown.

Kerið

Vulcanologists used to class Kerið as an explosion crater. However after deeper research it is now thought to be a large scoria crater. Its red hued caldera is 55 meters deep and 170 meters wide. Kerið was formed around 3,000 years ago.

"“These guys raise the bar in tourism services”"

A phenomenal tour group, tip top services! Being in the hospitality industry, one is always inclined to observe the "little extras that go a long way", the small details that set a company apart from the rest. Reykjavik Sightseeing went above and beyond my expectations. They run a fleet of exceptionally new, modern and comfortable buses which make longer tour travel an absolute dream.

"“Wow just wow”"

Went on our aurora tour our first night in Iceland. Got picked up on time from our hotel. What a night !!! Our tour guide was fantastic. Informative patient and enthusiastic for what he was doing. The buses all had tablets in the seat pocket but take your own earphones to listen in your own language. What a display !!!!!!! Best they had seen in a long time. The guide had binoculars telescopes and endless enthusiasm. Definately use them again 10/10.
