The Golden Circle

This classic Reykjavik excursion encompasses the 'Big Three' – Gullfoss, Geysir and Thingvellir, and more. The 'Big Three' are collectively known as the Golden Circle and provide a look at some of the scenic wonders for which Iceland is justly renowned. You’ll begin your day venturing into the beautiful Thingvellir National Park - a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Located about 30 miles from Reykjavik, it ranks as one of Iceland's top attractions. This park has outstanding scenery with an area surrounded by mountains and encompassing a vast lava plain of green moss and wild flowers. Continue to geyser area where you’ll see hissing springs and other geothermal phenomena. Lunch will be served in this scenic area.


Next, you'll drive to the Gullfoss waterfall. The 'Golden Waterfall' is the most famous of the country's many waterfalls. Here, the river Hvita drops 96 feet into two falls, creating an awesome sight. You'll visit waterfall Faxi with its salmon ladder and adjoining sheep round up pen and the town of Hveragerdi to see an earthquake exhibition. Being located on an old magma chamber, Hveragerdi is notorious not only for its abundance of hot springs, which heat the community's greenhouse industry, but also for its earthquakes. Lastly, appreciate a scenic drive of the city on your way back to your ship.


Note: Tour may operate in reverse order. Most of the sights of this tour can be seen from the coach.
