What to Expect
Meet a driver at your centrally located Reykjavik meeting spot, or at the cruise port, and then leave the city behind as you head into Iceland’s rugged, mountainous interior. The first stop on the Golden Circle route is Thingvellir National Park, where Iceland held its first parliamentary assembly. Hear guide commentary about the site as you admire the pristine beauty, and peer into the Thingvellir Rift, two tectonic plates joined by a narrow valley. Next, head to Gullfoss Waterfall, double-tiered cascades that send up spectacular mist and occasional rainbows. Continue along the Golden Circle to an area simmering with volcanic activity, hot springs, pools, and steam vents. Keep your camera ready at Strokkur, a powerful waterspout that erupts 98 feet (30 meters) in the air. This Golden Circle tour concludes with drop-off at your original departure point.

Thank you GorgoTravels for your very positive review of our Golden Circle Classic tour. Glad you enjoyed the Geysir area and the ever active Strokkur geysir. Seems you have been to Thingvellir and seen Gullfoss waterfall before that are also some of our best loved natural attractions on this tour. Your compliments for DeeDee have been delivered, she certainly is a unique ball of energy. Thank you for sharing your photos
