Golden Circle Express

We will visit Iceland most famous destinations on this afternoon minibus tour. Thingvellir National park, Gullfoss waterfall and Geysir geothermal area. We will also stop for ice cream at a local farm. Operated in a minibus, for a more personal experience.

Crater Kerid

First we visit Kerið, a volcanic crater lake. Initially it was thought that Kerið was formed by a huge volcanic explosion (as is usual for volcanic craters), however research now tells us this was probably a cone volcano which erupted and emptied its magma reserve. The cone collapsed into the magma chamber and created the crater lake bordered by strongly coloured red volcanic rock.

Gullfoss Waterfall – The Golden Waterfall

Next up is Gullfoss the most famous waterfall in Iceland in the river Hvíta. It’s power is inspirational and we can stand so close to it that we feel the mist of glacial water on our faces. Around this time it should be lunch time so we will stop at a local place for food.

Geysir Geothermal Area

After lunch we head over to the geothermally active valley of Haukadalur where we will see the famous Geysir and many hot springs. We will also see Strokkur geyser, which spouts every five minutes or so and projects steaming water to a height of about 60-100 feet.

Efstidalur – Icelandic farm

After the golden two, Gullfoss and Geysir, we will visit Efstidalur, a family farm located close to Laugarvatn lake. There‘s an ice cream barn at the farm and the concept is really charming, you can enjoy different flavoured ice cream produced from the cow‘s milk. It doesn‘t get more original…and the ice cream tastes amazing.

Thingvellir National Park and Öxarárfoss waterfall

To complete the Golden Circle we end our tour with visit to the National Park Thingvellir. The area holds great historical importance and has many remarkable geological features. The Eurasian and American tectonic plates meet here and Althingi (the Icelandic parliament) was formed on these rocks in 930 AD, making it the oldest parliamentary site in the world. There’s a beautiful waterfall nearby as well, in fact Öxarárfoss and Thingvellir have been designated UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
