Tour description

The Golden Circle offers three of Iceland's most popular attractions - Þingvellir national park, Geysir, and Gullfoss. Those three stops are part of the classic route. To make the best out of your day, we added some of our favorite extra stops.

Þingvellir

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.

Geysir

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. 

Gullfoss

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.
