Golden Circle and a Hot Spring Treasure

On the tour you will explore the iconic Golden Circle and afterwards unwind as you soak in a genuine Icelandic hot spring! On our first stop we retrace the footsteps of ancient Vikings by visiting the Þingvellir National Park. This is where the early settlers established the country´s first national assembly in 930 AD. Þingvellir is also where the American and Eurasian continental plates are dramatically pulling apart at an annual rate of 2 cm. It’s also where the country´s largest natural lake is to be found, Þingvallavatn.

From there we move 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 dramatic Gullfoss Waterfall, a breathtaking sight to behold. Here a powerful glacial river cascades down 32 meters on two levels into a deep narrow canyon with a thunderous roar.

The last stop on our tour, and the most relaxing, is the Secret Lagoon. Whatever the weather it´s the perfect spot for relaxing in between sightseeing and enjoying Icelandic nature at its very best. Indeed, the geothermal hot water is a hidden treat that Icelanders have been enjoying for generations! Around the Secret Lagoon you find several hot spots. A path has been built so you can have a closer look at the bubbling hot springs and a little Geysir even erupts every 5 minutes, showing off for the guests bathing in the hot spring.

All in all – it’s the perfect combination of activities. Stunning, must-do sightseeing, and a heavenly bathe in a geothermal hot spring set in a gorgeous location!

Tour Highlights

The Secret Lagoon

The Secret Lagoon is located in the small village Fludir. The natural and unique pool hasn't changed much through out the years, making it unspoiled and historical in the same time

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.

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.

Þingvallavatn

Þingvallavatn is the largest natural lake in Iceland, lies perched on the rift valley separating the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates. Most of it is in Þingvellir. The Silfra fissure pumps glacial water, filtered through the surrounding lava , into the lake, where the mineral rich fluid fertilises a variety of vegetation.

Brúarhlöð

Brúarhlöð is a narrow canyon in Hvitá River, just south of the famous Gullfoss Waterfall. The gorge is famous for its spectacular rock formation. The name of the rocks in Bruarhlöð is Breccias or Hyaloclastite.
The canyon is popular for white-water rafting and if we are lucky we might spot a cliff jumper or a raft boat coming down the glacier river gorge.

"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.
