Overview

If you only have time for one day tour while in Reykjavik, make it a journey around the Golden Circle, Iceland’s most popular sightseeing route. This full-day small-group tour checks off all the famous highlights such as Thingvellir National Park, the Geysir geyser, and Gullfoss Waterfall, as well as visiting the spectacular Kerid Crater Lake.
  • Full-day Golden Circle and Kerid Crater Lake tour from Reykjavik
  • See the meeting point of the American and Eurasian tectonic plates in Thingvellir National Park
  • Visit the highlights of the Golden Circle including the Geysir geyser and Gullfoss Waterfall
  • Admire the little-visited natural wonder of Kerid Crater Lake
  • Great-value tour includes pick-up service and round-trip transport
  • Small-group tour limited to 19 people ensures a personalized experience
After being picked up from your Reykjavik hotel, meet your guide and small group of no more than 19 people, and head east to explore the popular Golden Circle sightseeing route.

Your tour begins at Thingvellir National park, where you’ll get the rare opportunity to walk right on the meeting point of the American and Eurasian tectonic plates. Learn about the shifting of the plates and their influence on Iceland’s volatile volcanic landscapes from your guide as you admire the views, and hear more about Iceland’s history as you visit the site of the world’s first parliament.

The photo-worthy landscapes continue, as you stop by the Geysir geothermal area to see geysers including Strokkur and Geysir, the geyser after which all others are named. Stick around long enough to watch the Strokkur geyser erupt (around every 10 minutes), spurting a column of water up to 98 foot (30 meters) in the air.

Stop for a lunch break near the hot springs (own expense) and then continue to the mighty Gullfoss waterfall, one of Iceland’s most visited sights.

Your final stop of the day is the magnificent Kerid Crater Lake. Gaze out over the dramatic volcanic crater, which measures an impressive 886-foot (270-meters) wide and 180-foot (55-meters) deep, and marvel at the glittering crater lake at its heart.

Relax on the ride back to Reykjavik, where your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel or nearest meeting point.

Amazing tour
Jin

Amazing experience with perfect pace for each stop. Pick up and drop off are very convenient. Small group is the way to do it as there are one 19 of us and everyone goes back to the mini-bus on time. Golden circle and volcano crater is a must do trip.

Our driver was knowledgeable and a great driver in the terrible weather conditions. We got to see all the sights even though so much snow made it slightly difficult to appreciate everything.
