Full description

Embark on a bus tour of Iceland’s legendary Golden Circle and soak in the thermal waters of the Secret Lagoon. Explore the southwest, including the spectacular Geysir area, Gullfoss Waterfall, Kerið Volcano, and Þingvellir National Park.

After pickup in central Reykjavik, the day's first stop is at the Kerið Volcanic Crater. Here you can circle the crater top along a winding path and descend into the crater to reach the lake at its center.

Next, head to the Secret Lagoon where you'll have 1.5 hours to unwind in the thermal waters and admire the peaceful surroundings.

Continue to the active hot spring of Strokkur and watch it spout steaming water 30 meters every 8 minutes. Arrive at Gullfoss Waterfall and feel the spray of the glacial Hvítá River as it plummets down into a 32-meter-deep crevice.

Next, visit Þingvellir National Park, where the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates are pulling apart at a rate of a few centimeters every year. Þingvellir was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2004.

Long day but well worth it, they even threw in a little extra stop to pet the Icelandic horses. The guide was super friendly, knowledgable and funny. They were very accommodating, we set off 15 mins late whilst they waited for one of the passengers to retrieve her phone and one member in our group couldn’t find the big geysir during our stop so they stopped back again on the way home so she could see it. More than enough time at each stop which was great. The secret lagoon was the highlight, a really authentic experience we highly recommend.

What a day ! After a departure from the city center we headed towards the golden circle for a day rich in spectacular landscapes! In addition we were able to relax for 2 hours in the oldest Icelandic swimming pool. I recommend. The guide was really very interesting, alternating between anecdotes about Icelanders in everyday life, history or even current affairs, really captivating (all in English though)
