Tour Operator: Holiday Tours
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.
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 5-8 minutes and it is truly a big spectacle.
Now it is time for Gullfoss, the golden waterfall. In the summertime, up to 130 000 liters per second are running down this powerful waterfall. In good weather conditions, we are also able to see Langjökull glacier as well.
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 55 meters deep and 270 meters wide. Another remarkable feature is the aquamarine blue water of the lake that can be found in the crater.
