Golden Circle Experience
Discover the most iconic natural and cultural sites of the island with this all inclusive trip to the Golden Circle. Lunch, private transport, and a knowledgeable guide included. Travel at your own pace, take as much time as you wish to really appreciate all the natural beauty this country has to offer.
To begin the tour, you will be picked up in our luxury electric Mercedes vehicle and travel to the geothermal exhibition just out side of the city, included in the tour is an audio guide for ease of exploring the displays.
Next you will travel to Kerid Crater to explore this 6500-year-old volcanic crater in the heart of the Golden Circle. The beautiful crater lake in the centre has been formed by the collapsing of the volcanic chamber, and should not be missed.
We continue the journey to Fridheimar Tomato Farm or Farmers Bristo for guided education on how sustainable farming works in Iceland. We will enjoy a tasty tomato or mushroom based menu for lunch (Included in cost) before going to the world’s first geyser hot spring that was ever noted in print…and then gave the name to all the rest!
The 100ft shooting Geysir Hot-spring will take your breath away as it showers you in warm water. It is surrounded by bubbling springs which you will have the chance to explore with your guide.
Next, we will visit Iceland’s most well-known waterfall, Gullfoss, with a staggering 141 tons of water flowing over its edges per minute – be prepared to get wet! From here we will head to Laugarvatn to taste the local rye-bread and see first hand where the bread is baked in the geothermal sands.
Þingvellir National Park
We will complete our Golden Circle tour with a visit to the stunning Thingvellier National Park, the only UNESCO World Heritage site located directly on the dividing tectonic plates of North America and Eurasia.
