About

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

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 stop 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.


Northern Lights

To see the Northern Lights dancing on the Icelandic night sky is truly an experience that will last a lifetime.

Our guides are experts when it comes to the Northern Lights and we always make the decision based on the forecast before 18:00, if we are heading out during the evening or not.

We focus on both quality and quantity, we never take more than 19 people on this tour and we always try the remote area without the big crowds. Onboard, we have cozy chairs and blankets to keep you warm, because the winter nights can be rather chilly. Furthermore, we are offering hot chocolate and the famous local "Kleina" pastries to make the experience even nicer.

Once the guide has confirmed the right spot, it is time for the hunt, get your cameras ready, and let the show begin. Do not worry, our knowledgeable staff can always assist you with your camera settings as well. In case you do not have a camera on you, your friendly tour expert will take some professional photos, to which you will have free access the next day.

Even with the best of guides, sightings can never be guaranteed. In case we can't find any lights on the tour, you are welcome to book again for a Group Northern Lights Tour another day. Just inform us before 14:00 the next day, so we can guarantee you a seat.

In case we can't operate the tour at all during your stay in Iceland, we will fully refund you the tour price.
