On this Private Golden Circle Tour, you will experience all the best that Iceland has to offer. Everything between the mountains and the ocean: glacial rivers, beautiful landscapes, waterfalls, geothermal areas and wild Icelandic scenery.
We set off on this tour by traveling through mountains that separate Reykjavik area from the south. The drive itself will be a feast for your eyes. Lava fields, distant summits, geothermal plant spitting out huge columns of steam. Simply stunning!
Our first stop would be in Hveragerði when you can get some freshly brewed coffee and Icelandic sweets at a local bakery. In the same building, you can visit Earthquake Museum which simulates the earthquake that rolled over (under:) the south of Iceland in 2008.
Now we will be traveling through fields, meadows and be crossing few glacial rivers until we stop at beautiful Kerið, a volcanic crater lake. You can have a walk around the ridges or even go down and touch the gleaming surface of the water.
Have you ever been to an Icelandic green house? This is a great opportunity to check out how we grow our vegetables and eat famous tomato soup!
Charming little waterfall. You can come very close to the river or even go on top of this little gem.
At Geysir, you will witness an eruption of hot water going almost 20 or so meters up into the air. The whole area is a geological wonder covered in steam coming from the geothermal activity – an experience you will never forget!
When visiting the Gullfoss waterfall you will be stunned by the scale of this famous waterfall. Many cascades of fast pacing water dropping down to a canyon while producing amazing rainbows (with the right weather) is just a jaw-dropping experience! This is also a great place for lunch and for shopping. We can recommend the traditional Icelandic soup (there is always an option without meat): it will keep you full and warm for the rest of the day.
Pet Icelandic Horses
How CUTE they are, right? We will stop Bru’s Farm where you will get a chance to say hello to Icelandic horses.
Famous Restaurant in a “barn” with homemade delicious ice cream!
Our last stop on Private Golden Circle Tour would be the famous Þingvellir. This is the oldest working parliament in the world. There you will walk on old battlegrounds where the Vikings fought among each other in countless battles. Þingvellir is also a place where 2 continents meet. Imagine yourself strolling through a canyon which walls are made from 2 tectonic plates: European and American. A truly remarkable experience!
After the last stop, we will drive to Reykjavik ( around 60 mins) and drop you off at your hotel (or the right bus stop)
