Golden Circle

The golden circle combines 3 of Iceland’s most popular sights:

Þingvellir – The National Park

Þingvellir is an area of tremendous historical importance for Iceland. It’s where the first parliament was established in 930 AD. Not only is it a scenic beauty but you’ll be exploring one of the longest-running political establishments in Europe.

We’re not finished! Because of the geographical location of Þingvellir, it is possible to walk from the North American to the European tectonic plate. Talk about a bucket list item!


Geyser is arguably the most famous hot spring in Iceland. There’s not a whole lot of action these days but Strokkur (right next to it) erupts every 5-8 minutes or so. Make sure to have your camera ready to catch that amazing natural phenomenon.

Gullfoss waterfall

The golden waterfall is in the canyon of Hvítá and nothing short of a spectacular scenic view. When the weather conditions are safe, you can even walk all the way down to the waterfall.

Bonus stops to the Golden Circle:

Have you heard that Iceland is famous for using geothermal energy? Well, Friðheimar Tomato Farm is a prime example of that. We will walk through the greenhouse and enjoy the wonderful local dishes. Please note that the lunch is not included in the price.

Secret lagoon

We can’t get enough of geothermal attractions! The next stop is to the Secret Lagoon to enjoy a relaxing swim in geothermal water. It's not only one of the oldest swimming pools in the country, it has a constant temperature of 38/40 °C, thanks to the high geothermal activity in the area.


After pick-up we’ll straight out of the city. In a short while, we will pass Hellisheiðavirkjun – the 8th largest geothermal power station in the world and the largest one in Iceland. 

Soon after we will reach Þingvellir – the national park where the parliament was established in 930 AD. We’ll let you see for yourself but soaking in the history and walking between the North American to the European tectonic plates this place will offer you nothing but spectacular views.

Then it’s time to hit the road again and our next stop is the Geyser. Now, Geyser has been inactive for some time but Strokkur (right next to it) erupts every 5-8 minutes. Here, it’s important to not stand too close to the water – and have your camera ready. 

We continue our journey and the next stop is the Golden Waterfall. Located in the canyon of Hvítá, the waterfall plummets down into a 32-meter deep crevice. From the parking area, it's also possible to walk all the way down to the falls. It’s about a 10-minute walk but please be aware the walkway might be closed off in certain weather conditions. 

After we’ve witnessed all the natural phenomenon’s the golden circle offers, we’re continuing our journey and the next stop is lunch. Friðheimar Tomato Farm is a unique food experience. It has ample supplies of geothermal water that provides heat to the greenhouses where they grow tomatoes. We will walk around the greenhouse and taste their famous tomato soup. Please note that lunch is not included in the tour price.

Stuffed and satisfied hopefully, we’ll go back to the bus and continue our journey. The last stop – but certainly not least – is the Secret Lagoon, the oldest natural swimming pool in Iceland. Heated with geothermal energy, the pool is a natural resource of warm water coming from the hot springs. It’s a perfect way to end this tour, relaxing in warm water while enjoying the endless nature views.
