Description

Explore Iceland’s Golden Circle on this extended 12-hour tour from Reykjavik in a 4x4. Visit Thingvellir National Park, the Geysir geothermal field, the colorful Kerið lake, Hvalfjörður and the Secret Lagoon. This tour is limited to six people for a small-group experience.

The adventure begins at 8:30am when you guide picks you up in a rugged 4x4 at your Reykjavik hotel. Journey to the Golden Circle and your first stop, Thingvellir National Park.

A UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2004, see the world’s oldest existing parliament established in 930 AD. Thingvellir is also home to lake Thingvallvatan, the largest natural lake in Iceland.

Continue on to Geysir, a geothermal field of hot springs and the remains of an old volcano. Explore the pools of boiling mud and watch the Strokkur geyser erupt. This extremely active geyser shoots hot water up into the air as high as 30 meters every five to ten minutes.

Next on the agenda is the waterfall of Gulfoss. Watch water from the Langjökull glacier rush through the large canyon. If weather allows, venture down next to the falls and feel the mist as you approach the gorges.

Take a drive to Kerið, a colorful lake on top of a crater. Walk around and see the rich hues of the crater clash with the milky turquoise waters of the lake.

Travel on to Hvalfjörður fjord (the Fjord of Whales), named after the great number of whales that can be seen here. These long fjords are bordered with many waterfalls, making for a picture-perfect view.

After a day of exploring, head to the Secret Lagoon to relax in the warm water of this natural thermal pool.

Your tour concludes with drop-off back at your hotel.
