Combine two of Iceland's must see attractions. Explore the famous Golden Circle and end your day at the Blue Lagoon.
Tour Operator: Holiday Tours
The Golden Circle offers three of Iceland's most popular attractions - Þingvellir national park, Geysir, and Gullfoss waterfall. A full day of exploring awaits and there is no better way to end the day than with a visit to the Blue Lagoon.
Our first stop is at Þingvellir, the place of the first Icelandic parliament. The first parliament was established there in 930 AD and it is, therefore, the oldest one in Europe. Besides all the history you can also see the Mid-Atlantic ridge. This is the split of the tectonic plates that divides Europe from North America.
After that, we stop at Geysir. This "water puddle" gives its name to all the other Geysers in the world. "Strokkur", the little brother of Geysir, is still active today and he erupts every 5-8min and it is truly a big spectacle.
Last but not least is Gullfoss, the golden waterfall. In the summertime, up to 130.000 l/s are running down this powerful waterfall. In good weather conditions, we are also able to see Langjökull glacier as well.
Kerid volcanic crater
Kerid is a volcanic crater that is located in the Grímsnes area. It is part of the Western Volcanic Zone, which includes the Reykjanes peninsula and the Langjökull Glacier. The caldera of the crater is well intact and about 55m deep and 270m wide. Another remarkable feature is the aquamarine blue water of the lake that can be found in the crater.
Blue Lagoon (Admission not included)
At the end of the day, the guide will drive you to the famous Blue Lagoon. The Lagoon lays in the middle of a big lava field and silky blue water makes it a magical place.
Please note, that admission to the Blue Lagoon is not included. Please book your ticket well in advance. The tour is planned that we arrive at the Blue Lagoon at 17:00 / 5 pm. At around 19:00 / 7 pm we will depart from the Lagoon arriving in Reykjavik approximately at 20:00 / 8 pm.
