The Golden Circle should definitely be on your bucket list when coming to Iceland. There is no better way to scratch it of your list than with our exclusive Golden Circle Private Tour. The day starts with your pick-up at the hotel lobby. In case the departure times we offer don't suit your plans, please contact us and we will arrange a tour that fits your needs.

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.

To spice things up a bit, we can add an extra activity to the tour. You can choose the one you like during the checkout process here to the right:

  • Hvammsvik Hot Springs -  beautiful bay offering 8 natural hot springs of varying temperatures – on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. Situated along the shoreline, it offers eight natural hot springs of varying temperatures – mixing geothermal water with seawater from the ocean. Recently named the Number 1 best thing to do in the world in 2023 by Timeout Magazine. Towel and 1st drink are included in the entrance fee.
  • Secret Lagoon: Natural hot springs located in the small village called Flúðir – in close proximity to the Golden Circle area. The water stays at 38-40 Celsius all year. Please note: towel is not included in the price.
  • Blue Lagoon: A blue geothermal lagoon famous for it’s blue colors, silica mud masks and miraculous landscape.
  • Snowmobiling: The tour starts with an adventurous Super Jeep transfer up to the glacier. There, the team will hand you all the necessary equipment and the guide will give a safety briefing. And off you go, exploring the wonders of the beautiful Langjökull glacier.


Your tour will start with pick-up directly from your accommodation in Reykjavík. 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’ll 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 the natural phenomenon the Golden Circle offers in a private group, we’ll make our way back into Reykjavík for drop-off.
