Full description

Visit Iceland’s natural wonders on this 8-hour minibus tour accompanied by a professional guide. The Golden Circle route covers a 300km loop from Reykjavík to central Iceland and back. Visit Thingvellir, a pivotal landmark that connects all the major events in the founding of the Icelandic commonwealth. It’s also the best place on earth to view the North Atlantic divergent ridge. Stop at Fríðheimar farm, owned by the same family since 1995. The family, besides growing tomatoes and cucumbers, are passionate about horses. Enjoy a truly unique experience and meet the Icelandic horses up close on a visit to the stables. You might get a chance to pet them and maybe take a selfie! Lunch (at your own expense) will be held in the greenhouse where you will have the possibility to purchase local products on the menu after a visit of the stables. See Gullfoss, which is considered the most beautiful of Iceland’s 30,000 waterfalls. You’ll also see Kerið, a striking crater lake filled with milky blue-green water and surrounded by stark black and deep red slopes.

Excellent tour with an excellent (knowledgeable, charismatic, and humorous) guide Devin! A well organised, highly recommended tour covering the main highlights within one day. (The only thing that I wished is that we had more time to spend at each location, but considering the distance one makes by bus during the few hours, it is not realistic)

Great tour, great tour guide (Chiara) and unforgettable impressions! Sure, you sit a lot on the bus, but you know that beforehand. There was enough time in the places, there was a lot of information on the bus about the country and the people and the team was very nice. Definitely recommended to get a good first impression.

Howser was our enthusiastic tour guide who made the most of things being shuffled around on him last minute - without enough drivers, two tours in a similar area were merged. He handled this amazingly and gave us a very in depth and passionate tour of the Golden Circle, and even more! I would highly, highly recommend requesting a tour with him by name if you could, he left that strong an impression on my group. He clearly loves his country and is very eager to share all his insight with travellers so that they too, can appreciate this beautiful land.
